I have many happy memories of sherbet flavored push up pops, as a child, as an adult, and as a mother. I was pretty ecstatic when I walked into a craft store looking for plastic cake wraps and walked out with push up pop molds.
I’m excited not only because I have the most dang (!) amazing (!) push up pop ever, but because I have a giveaway for you.
Dresses from Shabby Apple are the cutest around, not to mention swimsuits, and they’re giving one of my fabulously patient readers a $50 gift card to Shabby Apple.

Why did I only make four? Weep. Weep. I shared with Mozely at least. He’s fighting off a cold and the terrible twos at the same time. It’s been a hard couple of days. Poor us.
Yeah, poor us, eating our fabulous Apple Pie Push Up Pops and shopping at Shabby Apple. It’s enough to make a grown woman veg out in front of multiple episodes of Vampire Diaries.
(that’s my story, and I’m sticking with it. Don’t judge.)
I must love you a lot, to be sharing all this with you.

Apple Pie Push Up Pops (makes 4)
- 1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored, cut into thin slices
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
- 1 Cup full fat PLAIN yogurt
- 1/4 Cup milk
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 3/4 Cup Graham cracker crust, baked, cooled and crumbled. I used this recipe, but you can use your own.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add the apples and stir, often, until the apples are softened. Put the sugar in the pan and stir again and cook until the liquid becomes bubbly and the apples are swimming in a lovely, caramel sauce. Stir in the cinnamon and remove from heat.
- Mix the yogurt, milk and sugar together. It should be very sweet (it gets less sweet as it is frozen). You may want to add more sugar if you have a very tart yogurt.
- Fold the apples into the yogurt. RESIST EATING IT ALL. You can spare a bite or two.
4. Layer the graham cracker crust at the bottom of your push up pop mold. Slightly more than one tablespoon per pop mold will do. Pour in some of your apple pie yogurt, and then put in another layer of crust in each mold. Finish the top off with the rest of the yogurt. Make sure to freeze these standing up! I use the Zoku that’s already in the freezer to hold them up, but styrofoam cups turned over or cake pop stands will probably do! Freeze for a few hours. Eat.
