Looking for a sweet treat you can make and enjoy with the kids this summer? Sweet Cherry & Chocolate Pudding Pops are a must have! Simplify by using a store-bought instant pudding mix.

With only a few ingredients and super simple instructions, this is an all-ages friendly project that will not only entertain the mind, but also the tastebuds!  Ingredients 1 box [...]
