A flavor perhaps for purists, the simple yet complex taste of vanilla comes through in this frozen pudding pop. Because the vanilla is the star of the show, be sure to use a pure vanilla extract—don’t even think about subbing in the cheap fake stuff. If you feel like getting a little crazy, add in an additional or alternative extract flavor.
Special equipment: You will need freezer pop molds for this recipe. We used these molds, but any kind will work. If yours don’t come with sticks that attach securely, you can buy wooden sticks and insert them 1 hour into the freezing time.
You will also need an instant-read thermometer for cooking the pudding.
