Malachi and I made Pudding Pops in the middle of our school day last Wednesday. Why? Because he was being a typical eight year old boy and we needed a break from writing words and solving math problems. (Want an example of his typical eight year old self?

He announced between phonics and science that Pudding Pops sounded good, and who am I to disagree on a 90° day? Plus cooking, measuring, and real life learning always count as “school time” in my book.
And so, Malachi and I whisked together homemade Creamy Vanilla Pudding, then together we came up with a brilliant idea to make transporting the Pudding Pops to the freezer much easier. Why not put the cups into a muffin tin so that they won’t slide around?
These muffin tins have been getting a workout lately, huh?
If you haven’t made pudding pops, I encourage you to try it. We have made them in chocolate and butterscotch too – and have even layered the flavors within one cup! Check out the Pudding Pop tutorial here.
