Watergate Salad Pudding Pops

It’s so hot right now in St. Louis.

It’s hotter than normal for this time of year and the humidity is terrible.

We look for any way we can to cool down.

This has led to an increase in fun and different popsicles.

Lucky for me it’s Day 2 of Summer Dessert Week, and it was the perfect excuse to share this fun and easy recipe for Watergate Salad Pudding Pops.

My teens and in-betweens and even the toddler’s LOVE Watergate Salad.

When trying to come up with some ideas for some fun and creamy concoctions, our wheels were turning one day at dinner.

We started naming off different foods we would like to make in popsicle form.

We already made Root Beer Float Popsicles and Peaches and Cream Cobbler Popsicles.

We have some really fun flavors coming, but these Watergate Salad Pudding Pops we wanted to share first.

I knew these would be perfect for Summer Dessert Week because I like to share recipes we make a lot with everyone.

Our favorite Summer Desserts.

And that’s these incredible Watergate Salad Pudding Pops.

Once we made a batch or two, we’ve made several more.

My kids love them. And that’s how I usually test a family friendly recipe.

If the kids eat them all up, I usually know it’s a winner.

I promise these don’t melt as badly as these pics make it look.

It was nearly 100 degrees the day I decided to make this batch.

I headed outside to shoot and well, they were melting pretty quickly.

In fact, I felt like I was melting pretty quickly too.

The base of these popsicles is a classic pudding pop recipe using pistachio pudding.

Simply add marshmallows and pineapple and you essentially have watergate salad.

You can add nuts too, but we decided not to since the pudding mix already has pistachios in it.
