Orange Creamsicle Push Pops

Ahh…the flavors of Spring…lemon, lime…orange! Spring is my favorite season! Of course, I love the flowers and trees blooming, but the baking…it makes me happy! These Orange Creamsicle Push Pops bring back fond memories of the Ice Cream Truck…running inside and asking my Mom for a quarter and flagging down the driver. I don’t think you can buy anything for a quarter anymore…I guess that dates me!

After creating the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes with Bubble Gum Frosting with Duncan Hines Frosting Creations, I just couldn’t help but try the other flavors. And since the Irish Cream Push Pops were such a fun treat, I knew these Orange Creamsicle Push Pops would be perfect for you to add to your Easter Dessert List!

Creating the Orange Creamsicle Push Pops are loads of fun and the perfect baking project with the kiddos, they will love layering the Orange Cupcakes, Orange Creme Frosting and Sprinkles…and of course eating them too.

I was excited to have the opportunity to create the Orange Creamsicle Push Pops for Duncan Hines! You can create your own recipe and submit it to the Frosting Creations Recipe Challenge for a chance to win a trip to the Duncan Hines Test Kitchens!

You can make the Orange Creamsicle Push Pops ahead of time, but you will need to keep them in the fridge until serving time.  Here’s what you will need…

Orange Creamsicle Push Pops Ingredients

You can find the Push Pop containers on Amazon, I bought mine on Pick Your Plum. But, if you are like me and simply can’t wait to try the Orange Creamsicles, you can use a small glass or jar, the layering method is the same.

They almost look like Ice Cream…don’t you think? But they won’t melt!
