Simple Spring Desserts – Boston Cream Pie Pops Recipe


Kids Made Boston Cream Cake Push Pops (8)1When it comes to making dessert our children enjoy helping out in the kitchen. Maybe it’s the sweet satisfaction of enjoying a sweet treat at the end or maybe it’s just hanging out with mom being creative that they enjoy so much. Growing up I did a lot of cooking and baking in the kitchen so I hope to inspire my girls to enjoy the kitchen as much as I do. There’s just something so rewarding about creating something and watching your loved ones enjoy it and that’s also why I enjoy baking with my girls.

This spring we are serving up some fun and easy dessert ideas with Kraft so yesterday I shared an Easy Boston Cream Pie Recipe. My girls wanted to create a fun Boston Cream Pie recipe of their very own so we created these fun push pops.

Boston Cream Pie Pops Recipe

Ingredients:

  • angel food cake
  • 1 package Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 cup Cool Whip
  • 1 package of Jell-O vanilla pudding

Directions:

You will first want to start by making your pudding, add 1 cup of Cool Whip and whip until it’s thick and creamy.

Since this is a simple recipe we opted for a pre-made angel food cake. After cutting rings with the cake our daughter was able to easily cut circles for the push pops.

I found the push pops and supplies easily at a local craft store. They’re such a creative thing to keep around and you can make almost anything with them!

As a parent I just love that something as simple as cutting circles in a cake can bring us together. My children have so much fun with simple tasks in the kitchen and it really does help me out too!

You will want to cut three circles for every push pop so make sure you have plenty. Once you have cut your circles start by placing one piece of cake in the bottom of your push pop.

After your cake is cut out and ready for the pops start making the chocolate. Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate is a great product for this task. I also added a little Cool Whip (1/4 cup) to the chocolate to make it a little easier to pour.

Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds and stir. You’ll want to repeat this process until the chocolate is melted. If you find your chocolate is stiff add a TBSP of milk until it’s nice and creamy.

To make the push pops I started first by putting the pudding mixture into a piping bag. It will make it easier to keep your push pops nice and neat. My oldest kiddo put together the pops with layers of cake, chocolate, cream, and back to cake.

Top with a layer of chocolate and dollop of cream and refrigerate for a half an hour to allow everything to firm. It’s a tasty dessert idea that can be easily served this spring and no matter how old you are it’s really fun to eat!
