Kids AND adults will go crazy over these fun push up pops.  Display them on the dessert table or put them in buckets at each place setting with sparklers.

My favorite way to display these fun pops is to use them as a centerpiece.  Place them in buckets filled with COLORED RICE and sparklers.  Let the guests light them all at the same time.  The kids will go nuts over the sparkling display!

  13. Saw these amazing desserts on Flamingo Toes and fell in love… I don’t have time to order the push pops for this weekends birthday party, but you’ve given me some great inspiration for a unique dessert to put together with what I have.

  15. I’m sorry Deanna but I had to laugh when I read your post. You silly girl these aren’t the push ups you buy with ice cream in them they are plastic ones that come empty. I ordered mine from Untie The Ribbons. The link is above with my article. Good Luck! 🙂
