Poptails Continued – White/Black Russians

  

We used homemade pudding as our base for the cocktail-turned-popsicle. For those of you who need your Poptail STAT — find your quick fix by using a small box (3 1/2oz) of instant pudding. Keep in mind that whatever variation you use, they won’t release as easily as some of the other poptails,  so if the popsicles come out with a few rough edges, get busy and start licking.

White Russian

Ingredients:

  • 1 Vanilla pudding batch (recipe follows)
  • 5oz vodka
  • 2oz Kahlua
  • 2oz Carolyn’s Irish Cream
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, about 1-2minutes.
  2. Freeze for about 1 hour or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles ,run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 5-7 seconds.
