You’ll have to reserve this cinematic treat for your home theater. Make way, popcorn—there’s a new snack in town!


For the malt base:

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 oz. vanilla pudding (1 individual serving cup)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup Ovaltine Classic Malt Mix
  • 1 1/2 tsp. agave nectar


  • 12 large malted milk balls, sliced or chopped into pieces


To make the malt base, in a bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla pudding, cream, malt mix and agave nectar.

To assemble the pops, insert sticks into the pop maker molds and pour in the malt base, pausing to add pieces of chopped malted milk balls as you pour, until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely, then remove the pops with the Super Tool and enjoy. Repeat to make the remaining pops. Makes 6 pops.

Pop Tip: If you want to apply slices of malted milk balls to the walls of the pop maker molds, brush them with honey so they stick securely before inserting sticks and pouring in the pop base.
