Easy Frozen Hot Cocoa Pops

Easy Frozen Hot Cocoa Pops

Hot chocolate is the theme this winter and who can be mad at that?

We can only have so many hot cocoa bars, hot cocoa bombs and traditional hot cocoas that I wanted to think outside the box.

Since this has been a mild winter in Upstate New York, I whipped up these easy frozen hot cocoa pops. They are the perfect treat to have after a day of playing outside or taking a break from virtual learning. If you are from a place with warmer climate, these pops are for you and your little ones!

It only requires two ingredients and the best part is I got them both at my favorite place, Dollar Tree!

All you need is chocolate pudding cups and mini marshmallows.

If you are at Dollar Tree, you can also grab what you need to make the pops. Grab an ice cube tray and Popsicle sticks found in the craft area.

You can also use popsicle molds like I used here.

Fill molds with marshmallows and fill with chocolate pudding. Freeze for about 2 hours and enjoy!
