Creamy Carmelicious Milksicles
Who doesn't like ice cream on a stick? A fun-to-eat, cool treat that's guaranteed to inspire a smile or two! For flavor variation, use other ice cream toppings such as chocolate, butterscotch or strawberry.
1 1/2 cups lowfat milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping at room temperature
6 (3-ounce) plastic or paper cups or 6 (2.5-ounce) freezer pop molds
6 popsicle sticks
- Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan and gradually whisk in milk. Simmer over medium heat until thickened, about 2 minutes, whisking frequently.
- Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Transfer to a large shallow bowl; place in refrigerator for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of caramel topping randomly over pudding. Gently swirl into pudding (Do Not Over Stir). Spoon mixture into plastic cups; place cups in an 8-inch baking pan or pie pan. Place popsicle sticks in centers. Freeze until firm.
Makes 6 servings.
Variation: For pudding, refrigerate after swirling in caramel topping. Serve chilled topped with whipped cream, if desired.
Time-Saving Tip: For speedy milksicles, substitute instant vanilla pudding mix for ingredients above and follow directions for pudding.
