  • 2/3 cup sprinkles, divided
  • 18 disposable plastic or paper cups (3 ounces each)
  • 2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cups crushed vanilla wafers (about 60 wafers)
  • 18 wooden pop sticks


  1. Spoon 1 teaspoon sprinkles into each cup.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix 2 minutes. Let stand until soft-set, about 2 minutes. Stir in whipped topping, crushed wafers and remaining sprinkles.
  3. Cut a 1-in. hole in the tip of a pastry bag or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; fill bag with pudding mixture. Pipe into prepared cups. Top cups with foil and insert pop sticks through foil.
  4. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes before gently removing pops.
