Skittles® Push Pops take just a few minutes to assemble and combine pre-made pound cake, frozen whipped topping, fruit and colorful Skittles®! Just top with sprinkles and a cherry and you have a quick and fun backyard treat.

Summer always inspires me to to make fun treats to share with friends and family. Of course, even treats should be fast and easy. The colorful rainbow of Skittles® inspired me to create this simple and light treat. Because we work and play hard all summer long, I like to serve up something fun at the end of the day.

Aren't they cute?

I picked up a whole bunch of great Funshine products at Walmart. I stocked up on Dr Pepper® Vanilla Float, M&M's® Plain, Pedigree Dentastix® Beef Flavor, Starburst®, Life Savers® Hard Candy and, of course, Skittles®Be sure to Download the Blippar app from your Apple or Android store to scan your packages and receive exclusive content.

Okay, back to those Push Pops!

Grab all your ingredients and start assembling. I like to use one of my extra push-pop containers to cut my pound cake.

Then the fun begins. I started my push pops with a layer of pound cake, whipped topping and then candy. The whipped topping helps to hold the candy in place.

Isn't that pretty?

To finish my push-pops I layered on another slice of pound cake, then whipped topping and assorted frozen berries.

To decorate I added just a little more whipped topping, multi-colored sprinkles and a cherry with a stem. The best part is, these will not melt in the heat. They will go a little soft, but are perfect for a backyard party or a treat to pack along to the park.
