3 Freezin Summer Treats

Nesquik Chocolate Igloo
from Nestle

  • 2 cups of fat free milk
  • 1 package (about 3.4 oz.) of vanilla or chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1/4 cup of NESTLÉ NESQUIK Chocolate Flavor Powder
  • 6 (3- to 4-oz. size) paper cups
  • 6 wooden craft sticks

COMBINE milk, pudding mix and Nesquik in large mixer bowl. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes or until blended and slightly thickened. Pour evenly into paper cups; insert wooden stick in center of each cup.

FREEZE for 3 hours or until firm. Peel off paper cups before serving.

Try dropping a piece of fruit in the middle of each Igloo before freezing. Once frozen, your kids will have a fun surprise hiding inside their igloo.
