Hey, don’t push me around! Push pops are all the rage these days and no wonder–they’re simple to fill and yummy to eat. Here are some of our quick tips:

  • Purchase some empty push pop containers.
  • Pick a base; we used pound cake and chocolate chip cookies.
  • Use the plastic tube as your cookie cutter. Gently press the top of the tube into the pound cake, cookies, or whatever you’re using.
  • Choose something soft to layer in between, like raspberries and whipped cream or ice cream.
  • Freeze a bunch to have on hand for a delicious anytime summer treat.

  1. I’ve got cake in the freezer (layer cake that failed to stay in its layers) and icecream. Could I use chocolate syrup, too, or would it soak into the cake before everything froze?

  3. Yummy! Now that I think about it, I haven’t had an orange flavored Flintstones sherbert push up since I was about 10, this post really brings back memories. This is a really great idea. Looks delicious. I would go ahead and add the chocolate syrup, maybe put the pop in the freezer enough for the cake to freeze and then put the syrup on after.
