Frozen Peanutty Pudding Pops

Today must be 2 post Tuesday! I hope you don't mind. I couldn't wait to share these yummy treats with you. I'm a huge pudding pop fan. When I was growing up it was a real treat when mom picked them up at the grocery store. My favorite's the vanilla and chocolate swirled. When I found this recipe on the Skippy website I knew my kids would love them. They love pudding and peanut butter, so why not mix them and freeze them for a great treat. I was definitely right. My kids thought these were great. These pops also last a lot longer and are more filling than regular pudding pops because of the peanut butter. My kids licked and licked these and not one of them could finish their pop. I just stuck them in another wax cup, put the foil on the top and stuck in back in the freezer for later. Adults enjoy these too!
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 box instant chocolate or vanilla pudding (regular box)
2 cups cold milk

Blend all ingredients in a medium bowl with a wire whisk. Spoon pudding mixture into 4 oz wax coated paper cups or muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. Place a piece of foil over the top and using a knife, slice a small hole in center. Place a plastic spoon or wooden ice pop stick into the slit. The foil holds the spoon or stick in place. Freeze 4 hours or until firm. To serve, peel off paper cups or cupcake liners. 6 servings.

Since you are the popsicle lady, maybe you can help me (?). When my kids were little, I made them popsciles out of peanut butter, banana and they had mini chocolate chips in the bottom of the cup......do you have that recipe? I can't find it anymore.

Coleen- I've never heard of these, but if you find the recipe let me know! I will keep my eyes peeled when I'm looking through recipes. I have a collection of older cookbooks that I drag out every once in a while to look through.
