S'mores Pudding Pops // take a megabite

My favorite snack pack pudding flavor combo was s’mores. Hands down. I mean, I’ve always loved the s’mores rendition of most snacks. (Pop Tarts too!) So I figured this pudding HAD to happen. And while I’m at it, why not freeze the hell out of it pop-style!? I wanted to go all out for Billy’s Popsicle Week, ya know?

S'mores Pudding Pops // take a megabite

I loved having those little snack pack pudding guys in my lunch back when I was in school! The only time I wasn’t into them was when I’d get soup, apple sauce, AND pudding. I mean, if I’m not chewing, it’s not a meal, ya know?

Anyhow, I just want to say that these s’mores pudding pops are half milk chocolate and half toasted marshmallow pudding. They freeze up all awesome-like and taste like those snack packs of my childhood! Do it up! Pop, lock, and drop it like it’s hot.

Whisk your feelings! Then freeze them!

S’mores Pudding Pops (makes 12 pops + 1 or 2 parfaits)
Recipe adapted from Serious Eats via this post

  • 3.5 oz. milk chocolate
  • 1/2 batch marshmallows, toasted* (recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup +2 T granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 T cornstarch
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 3 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • graham cracker crumbs for pops and serving

* Toast marshmallows using an oven torch or pop them under the broiler in an oven-safe dish until toasty and melted.

Directions:

  1. Melt the milk chocolate and toasted marshmallows in separate medium bowls in the microwave for 20 second intervals. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in the milk a few tablespoons at a time, making sure to dissolve all of the cornstarch, and doing your best to smooth out lumps. Whisk in the egg yolks.
  3. Whisking constantly, cook over medium-high heat until the mixture thickens and bubbles start to form and sputter; about 6 minutes. It’ll thicken JUST when you think it should’ve already. Once it’s thick and luxurious reduce heat to low and continue to cook, whisking constantly for 1 minute.
  4. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla. Divide the pudding, evenly between the bowls of melted milk chocolate and toasty marshmallows. Whisk quickly to incorporate the goodness.
  5. Spoon the milk chocolate pudding and toasted marshmallow pudding alternately into your popsicle mold. Sprinkle the ends with graham crackers and insert sticks. Freeze for 6 hours or until super firm. Remove from pop molds by running them under warm water. Dunk in graham cracker crumbs and serve!

Question: do you have to somehow toast the marshmallows after you make the marshmallow recipe? The title is Easy Breezy Vanilla Marshmallows, but then the puddling pop recipe says 1/2 batch marshmallows, toasted. Not sure if this just means the marshmallows as they are when you make them, or if you’re supposed to toast them? Thanks! These look amazing!

Reply

Megan August 15, 2013 at 4:40 pm

Hey Rebecca,
Simply toast a half batch of marshmallows using an oven torch OR put them in an oven-safe dish and pop them in the broiler until toasty and melted. Hope this helps!

Erika August 15, 2013 at 5:27 pm
