Football Referee Inspired OREO Pudding Pops

Earlier this month, I shared some savory recipes for game day – geared especially for the bacon lovers out there, so now it’s time to talk about something SWEET! 😋

These Layered OREO Pudding Pops are inspired by the bold stripes on football referee jerseys. They’re fun to make and simple enough for the kids to help with too! You might notice that the stripes aren’t perfect… and that’s okay because neither are we. 😉

With their high contrast stripes & penalty-flag-yellow popsicle sticks, these treats are all about scoring big on taste while giving a playful nod to the most popular sport in America. 🏈

Game Day Referee Pudding Pops + Football Printables


You’ll Need:

  • 1 Box white chocolate instant pudding*
  • 1 Box chocolate instant pudding
  • Milk (in amounts called for on pudding boxes)
  • 16 OREO Cookies, finely crushed
  • 2 Piping bags (pastry bags or freezer-size plastic zip bags)
  • 8 Short popsicle sticks (mine were 4.5″ x .5″ size)
  • 3 oz paper cups

Optional Extras:

*NOTE: Make sure to look for white chocolate pudding specifically, as vanilla puddings often have more of a yellow-ish tint to them. We want the stripes to be as close to the referee jersey colors as possible.


1. Prepare the popsicle sticks by wrapping them about 1/2 way down with yellow duct tape, then cutting the excess tape off the top.

2. In separate medium bowls, mix the white chocolate and chocolate puddings with milk, as directed on the boxes. Let the pudding set for 5-10 minutes.

3. Using a food processor, crush 16 OREO Cookies to a fine crumble.

4. Pour the OREO Cookie crumbs into the bowl of chocolate pudding and stir until well combined. This gives the pudding a new texture and creates some extra chocolate-y goodness! No one will judge you for licking the bowl. ;)

5. Fill one piping bag with the white chocolate pudding and another piping bag with the chocolate/OREO Cookie pudding. Pipe 4 to 5 alternating layers of puddings into the cups to create a striped look.

6. Insert the wooden side of the popsicle sticks into the pudding cups.

7. Freeze for 4+ hours.

8. Pull from the freezer and allow the pops to thaw for 3-5 minutes to make it easier to peel off and remove the paper cups. Glue the printable football words onto the sticks if desired. Serve immediately with ice-cold Coca-Cola and ENJOY!
