I love Rum Chata… it is a liquor that is really smooth and has a lower alcohol content so it’s not as harsh as drinking other types of liquor. It’s great by itself or in recipes. It’s similar to a Kahlua in that it tastes milky. You could probably substitute Kahlua if that’s more to your taste.
I’ve been on a mission to make fun treats with Rum Chata because… why not… yum. I have a few recipes that I posted two years ago that have been very popular.
This time, I wanted to try popsicles. Popsicles probably aren’t a winter thing, but I love any type of fudge popsicle so I decided to try mixing some Rum Chata in pudding mix and freezing it for pudding Popsicles.
They. Are. Delightful.
To Make, mix:
- 1.5 cups of milk
- .5 cup of Rum Chata
- Jell-O Sugar-Free Instant Pudding and Pie Filling, White Chocolate, 1-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6) (affiliate link to product on Amazon)
Pour into molds immediately, freeze.
The molds pictured above are some my friend gave me, but I also made some in the molds pictured below. I strongly preferred using the push pop version for this recipe. You can eat them sooner… the other molds took longer to freeze and you can’t eat them when they’re still a little slushy. Slushy was yummy.
Just make sure to label them and put them where only the adults can reach.

Added March 17, 2015: I tried a Copycat Rum Chata recipe that might work well with this if you don’t have Rum Chata on hand. Check it out: Copycat Rum Chata.
