This extra thick, smooth, rich and creamy chocolate ice cream has a lot of body to it and is so simple to make.

Jello Pudding Is the Secret

Instant chocolate pudding is the secret to making this ice cream recipe turn out great time after time. I personally prefer Jello brand instant pudding for this recipe. Also, if you don’t care for chocolate you could make this recipe with Jello vanilla instant pudding. I think it would turn out just fine.


Easy Ice Cream Pudding Pops: After removing the ice cream from your freezer container, pour each evenly into paper cups. Insert a Popsicle stick into center of each cup. Freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Peel off paper cups just before serving.
