  1. Sheryl~ I love this idea! My son would flip for these! I’m definitely going to try them, and blog them. When I do, I will be certain to give a shout out to you! Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Have a blessed week & come back soon!

  2. Does it have to be Greek yogurt? I did small buttons with baby yogurt for my daughter and they started melting as I was scraping them off the pan.

    • Hi Rachel,
      I don’t know how thick baby yogurt is but greek yogurt is VERY thick and will hold the shape. It’s almost like sour cream it’s so thick. I hope this helps. Thanks for visiting. :)

    • I have a tip that might help. If you strain other types of yogurt through cheesecloth, even just for 5-10 minutes, it will be nice and thick like greek yogurt. I did that with the plain vanilla cups that are always left over when my husband buys those 12-packs of yogurts and made frozen buttons for myself. Such a nice little snack to ward off night snack cravings!

      • Hi Lindsay, Thanks for the tip, the idea of makeing some and portioning them out for night time snacks. Great idea! :)

  3. My kids always beg me for those tube yogurt treats, and I never get them for them – this will make a great treat for them the next time they ask! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I just made this using a frosting bag and tip (I happen to have these laying around, lol). I don’t recommend using a Greek yogurt that has chunks! :) The key lime and raspberry were fine, but the strawberry kept clogging my frosting tip. I was able to make 100-120 buttons per cup of yogurt. If you lay down parchment paper on your cookie sheet, they peel right off! I’m really excited to see how my daughter likes these, but I’m sure she’ll love them and so will I. Great healthy dessert alternative!

  5. If you do want to use a yogurt with chunks, try giving it a whiz in the blender first, then sticking it back to refrigerate so it stays nice and thick!

  6. :-) I can’t wait to try these out on my grandkids & myself too….sounds like a great solution to my nightime snack sweet-tooth. Thanks, Sharon

    • Hi Di,
      They don’t stay frozen that long and yes, the kids will get messy fingers. But they’re delicious and they love them! :)

  7. Sheryl,

    I had seen this yogurt snack on Pinterest before, actually several times, but just tried it recently. I wanted to try something a little different, so I used my silicone ice cube trays which have designs on the bottom, one having a wagon wheel design and the other was my Mickey Mouse shaped ice cube tray. I just take a small teaspoon of yogurt, any kind you like, and fill the ice cube tray to the size I want, so easy! Since these ice cube trays are very flexible, the yogurt designs come out pretty easily by just pushing on the bottom of the tray. I turn the yogurt designs over so the design is on top and they look so cute, especially for parties! It’s a great snack with a “special touch”.
