Kahlua -n- Cream Push-up Pops… Push-pops All Grown-Up!

I usually post cocktails on Mondays and since I didn’t want to disappoint, I created a creamy cocktail push-up pop… dessert and a cocktail all in one ~ LOVE it! This happens to be one of my mom’s original recipes, which I have now created in push-pop form. The original recipe is usually layered in a Springform pan. I’m including the recipe for the ice cream pie below. The push-pops are layered the same way that the pie is layered. This is a super easy, crowd-pleasing pie to make. It always gets rave reviews.


As far as making these into push-up pops, they were a little messier than cake and frosting push-up pops. You need to put the push-pop together except for the stick. Click on this link to see how the pieces come together. Put the push-pops on a cookie sheet. These need to be completely filled and frozen solid before inserting the stick. After each layer, I had to go around the inside of each pop container with a damp paper towel to clean up any splatters that showed on the sides.

Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let soften. Begin by putting a spoonful of vanilla ice cream into the bottom of the pop. Spread it to even out the layer. Pop them in the freezer for fifteen minutes. Add a spoonful of fudge sauce on top of the ice cream layer. Freeze until firm. Add another spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Next, add a caramel layer. I used a squeeze bottle of caramel sauce and it worked great. Layer with another spoonful of ice cream and top off with fudge sauce. Sprinkle the top with Skor bar pieces. Using a toothpick or small skewer, poke holes into the ice cream layers. Add a small spoonful of Kahlua on top. The Kahlua will seep down into the various layers to create a great flavored dessert.  Freeze until ready to serve.

    Normally, I’m not a big fan of push up pops especially when they include cupcakes etc. These ones however are to die for! Love your Mom’s recipe and how you presented it. Great job.
