DIY Push-Up Pops

Remember Push-Up Pops? Now remember the “Pebble” Push-Up Pops with nerds inside? I grew up on these things. It wasn’t summer if these weren’t in the freezer. I started getting a hankering for them over the last couple weeks, and realized how ridiculously easy it would be to make them myself. Presenting: DIY Push-Up Pops!

DIY Push-Up Pops
  • Push Pop Containers (Around $1 a piece from Amazon. They're reusable and can be used for all sorts of cool projects!)
  • Sherbet in the flavors of your choice (I used orange and lime)
  • Rainbow Nerds (often found in the "movie candy" section of the stores)
  1. Allow the sherbet to thaw slightly so it can be mixed.
  2. Mix (by hand or on a slow setting in a mixer) the Rainbow Nerds and sherbet in a large bowl.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the push pop container, and place the lid on.
  4. Return the push-up pops to the freezer and let chill for at least an hour.
  5. Enjoy!

See? So easy. So delicious. But be careful, they melt quickly! Better eat them all now.
