I found these yummy treats in my in-box this morning...Thank you Parents Mag!

  • 8  tablespoons  strawberry topping
  • 4    bananas, peeled and halved crosswise
  • 1-1/2  cups  strawberry ice cream, softened
  • 8  tablespoons  pineapple topping
  • 1-1/2  cups  vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1/3  cup  chocolate-fudge topping
  • 1-1/2  cups  chocolate ice cream, softened
  •   Whipped cream
  • 1/4  cup  chopped walnuts
  • 8    maraschino cherries (drained and patted dry)
Directions 1. Divide strawberry topping among eight 6-ounce plastic or paper cups. Insert a wooden stick into each banana half; place one in each cup, stick side up. Cover and freeze for an hour.
2. Divide strawberry ice cream among cups, spooning it in around bananas; repeat with pineapple topping. Freeze for 15 minutes. Spoon vanilla ice cream, fudge topping, and chocolate ice cream into cups until full. Place a square of aluminum foil with a slit in the center over each cup. Freeze overnight or until firm.
3. When ready to eat, peel off the cups. Top each pop with whipped cream, walnuts, and a cherry.
