I am excited to share my candy corn fruit push pops with you today….
my kiddos have been riding the bus to school for 3 weeks now.
do you know what that means? it means more free time for me, less gas wasted, money saved, and Pinterest ideas to execute.
i wanted to surprise my kids with a really fun after school snack. I found a cool idea on Pinterest for a fruit cup that looked like a candy corn. well the colors at least.
i thought my cake push pop containers would be the perfect container for this cute little treat.
all it takes is 3 simple ingredients ( i usually purchase all my ingredients at Aldi but they were out of non-dairy whipped topping)
i’ll share the full recipe at the end of this post.
start by layering your crushed pineapple (make sure its packed in and drained well)
next add your mandarin oranges , i split them in half for easy chewing, again pack them in tight
top it off with a hefty dose of whipped topping. I used can whipped cream because it was dairy free.
don’t forget to put the lid on to keep them fresh.
i cut wholes in an old shoe box to help my push pops from falling over. if this would have been for a party, i definitely would have mod podge some cute paper on the box. or covered it in fabric scraps. I placed the box in the fridge to keep them nice and cold!
- makes 11 cake pops ⅓ cup serving size
- 1 can crushed pineapple
- 1 can mandarin oranges
- whipped topping
- cake push pop containers
- start by placing push pops into a push pop stand or cut holes in a box to make your own
- layer drained crushed pineapple (pack tight)
- layer mandarin orange segments (pack tight)
- top with whipped topping
- place lid on and refrigerate until ready to eat.
for those of you wondering i bought my cake pop containers for a company that no longer sells them but here are similar ones.
