Popsicles are so fun, aren’t they? You can make them with pretty much anything. You can whip up pudding or make your own mix. I have done both. But I think I love the popsicles made with pudding more than all the others.
Wicked witch popsicles are made with pistachio pudding.
Pistachio pudding has the best color for Halloween. Doesn’t it? It’s the perfect color of green without having to add any additional coloring. And it’s perfectly delicious without having to add any additional flavoring. It’s the best kept secret for Halloween desserts.
I knew the color would be perfect for these Wicked Witch Popsicles . It just screams wicked witch color doesn’t it? She was green and black and hideous with the moles on her face. I hated every inch of her when I was growing up because she hurt the dog. You don’t hurt the dogs!
I was going for the whole melting wicked witch scene at the end of The Wizard of Oz. You know the scene. They toss water on her and she just starts to melt. The fluff is there to represent the smoke that comes off her as she’s melting. And the pistachios are the chunks of the witch as she’s melting or has melted.
So, true story.
When I was little, and I mean like 5 or 6 little, we went to the church for a Halloween party. I wanted to be a genie so much! Mom made me this cute genie outfit that I loved! It had sparkly black tuille that was slit up the legs. I had my hair in as much of ponytail as I could. I loved I Dream of Genie so much and loved that costume so much. I remember wearing it a long time after Halloween.
Anyway, it was a great party! I won a costume category. And I won a large box of delicious chocolates. As a little kid, chocolates were the best thing on earth! The mystery of what was in the middle, the delight of finding a caramel or a toffee chocolate. I was in heaven. I couldn’t wait to go home and ran to get my things when they told me it was time to go home.
Then I heard it.
A cackle that was witch worthy!! There was commotion and my sister was horrified as the witch picked her up and carried her out of the church. I’m told she was crying and screaming as the witch took her out of the church.
However, I knew that voice. I had heard that cackle before. Regardless of the green make up and the warts on her face made with bread, I wasn’t fooled. I knew immediately that Mom was the witch that carried my sister off. I was not afraid at all and even laughed when I heard the cackle. That was until I knew my sister was terrified. Then, I think I laughed even harder!
She’s the older sister so it’s only fair.
Ever since that time, I can’t think of The Wizard of Oz without thinking of that memory. Mom looked almost exactly like the wicked witch in the movie. The green color, hideous nose, and the warts on her face. I remember getting home and Mom peeling the warts off her face. All the while having a chuckle at my sister thinking she was a real witch.
I was only focused on the chocolate in the box! It was fancy chocolate! I tried to make the box last. Of course I had to share with the rest of the family. Dad decided he didn’t want to get another fruit jelly. He poked his finger in the bottom of almost all the chocolates to get the good ones! I was so upset. He ruined the whole box!
Well, there’s no chocolate to poke with this Wicked Witch Popsicles recipe. There’s pistachio pudding, pistachios, and marshmallow fluff. Oh, and milk, of course. Pudding almost insinuates milk because you can’t make instant pudding without it.
You could totally put some chocolate chips in there if you wanted to. But I prefer the creamy pudding, sweet swirls of marshmallow fluff and crunch from the whole pistachios stirred into the Wicked Witch Popsicles . Wicked witch popsicles are creamy and delicious. They’re full of pistachio flavor and super simple to whip up!
You can see it, right? The whole wicked witch reference, right?
The color, the swirls, and the mix ins all remind of that one part of the movie. You know the part, right? The part where she says, “AH! You cursed little brat! Look what you’ve done! I’m melting, melting! Ohhhhh, what a world, what a world. Who would have thought that some little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?”
And then she disappears into a puddle with just the hat sitting on top of everything. All in the effort to obtain the broom so Dorothy can take it back to the Wizard. He claims he can send her back home. But then he says that she has the power to go home all along. Isn’t that always the case? No matter what we want, we have the power to obtain it ourselves all along.
The Wizard of Oz also teaches us that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. And that we should learn to love the ones that are nearest and dearest to our hearts. Disagreements will always happen, but we are family. And we should always have each other backs and be there no matter what. Put differences aside and love those that love us.
I know. Not what you were expecting with a Halloween Wicked Witch Popsicles recipe, but it’s where my mind went with these delicious wicked witch popsicles.
