Coconut Creme Ice Pops

Friends, are you up for a sweet challenge?

When it involves food, I’m always game. Desserts? Count me in!

Voortman has been a popular brand in many families’ homes, mine included, for over 60 years. My grandma always had a few packages of Voortman Wafers in her pantry. I remember sneaking some when she wasn’t looking. Sorry Grandma! My kidself couldn’t resist. Now, Voortman wants to help inspire you to get creative using Voortman Wafers in their Inspired by Voortman Contest.

Inspired by Voortman Contest

Voortman is giving away $2,500 USD to two lucky winners. I’d say cold hard cash is a sweet prize too!

    There are two categories you can enter under and each category has a $2,500 USD cash prize.

    1. Wafer Structure: Create a delicious work of art or an object using Voortman Wafers. The wafers must be visible in your creation and ideally should make up the majority of it.

    2. Wafer Recipe: Create a wafer-based dish or treat with Voortman Wafers that you can eat and enjoy. Again, the wafers must be visible in your recipe and must be a primary ingredient. Don’t worry about including a list of ingredients or steps to make your recipe in your entry.

    My Wafer Recipe Creation

    Of course, I had to make something. My mind was brimming with ideas on what would work well for this contest. I can’t win, but I’m sharing just for the fun and to hopefully inspire you to make something unique and/or delicious. At first, I thought of some kind of cake with wafer layers. I was going to run with that until I was shopping in the paper towel aisle and saw those little bathroom cups you use for rinsing your mouth after you brush your teeth. I thought they were the perfect size to make ice pops and use a Voortman Wafer as the stick. It was my own little a-ha moment in the cleaning aisle at Walmart.

    I settled on using the Coconut Creme Voortman Wafers and knew I needed something to complement the flavour. I went with the obvious – a coconut cream pie filling, but in a frozen format.

    The ice pop portion is made with vanilla instant pudding, coconut extract, shredded coconut and frozen whipped topping.

    The pudding mixture goes into the small plastic cups. Then place a Voortman Wafer in the centre of each pushing down so it will hold upright. Sprinkle on a little coconut to decorate and freeze for at least 4 hours. I left mine sit overnight so I knew they’d be nice and firm to eat.

    I carefully removed the cup with a knife and it peeled off into these beautiful treats!

    They are cold, creamy and coconutty! The best part is you can eat the entire treat with nothing going to waste. I personally don’t like the wooden sticks and much prefer Voortman Wafers.

    Kids can help make this recipe and will love to eat them. My daughter has been eating them like they are going out of style. Good thing it will be a cinch for me to make more. I might try a few other flavours like strawberry or chocolate.

    I hope I’ve helped to inspire you to create something delicious or fun with your Voortman Wafers. I’ll be watching the Creations Gallery to check out everyone’s entries. Good luck to all!

      These ice pops look very cool and delicious. I have already saved the recipe. This summer has been so hot and dry that we need ice pops to keep cool and these coconut creme ice pops to cool down. Thank you for sharing with us.
