Homemade Pudding Pops

Fudgy, chocolatey Homemade Pudding Pops are surprisingly easy to make and SO good. You just need a popsicle mold, some milk, sugar, a little cornstarch, and chocolate.

  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (30g) cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk whole preferred, but any percentage will work
  • 1 cup (6oz) chopped semisweet chocolate good-quality chocolate chips are fine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Slowly pour in milk, whisking continuously to keep lumps from forming.
  • Heat over medium-low, whisking occasionally, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 10 to 15 minutes. Keep the heat low enough that the pudding thickens without coming to a simmer. If it begins to simmer, turn down the heat.
  • Stir in chocolate and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, until chocolate is completely incorporated. Stir in vanilla and remove from heat.
  • Strain mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any cornstarch lumps and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Pour mixture into your popsicle mold, leaving about 1/2-inch of space at the top. Cover, add sticks, and freeze for at least four hours until solid.
  • Run mold under warm water to loosen popsicles and gently remove from mold. Enjoy!


There will probably be a little extra pudding leftover after filling all the molds. You can either discard it or transfer it to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate it for a couple of hours and have a mini batch of chocolate pudding. ;)
