Colorful Confetti Ice Cream Pops for Summer

Beneath the confetti-candy covering of these ice cream pops lies a marvelous surprise: a soft-in-the-center miniature candy bar on a Popsicle stick. Let kids help prepare these fanciful confections: Have them push sticks into the candy bars and finish the pops by giving them a full coating of the candy sprinkles. Perch the pops on a chilled cake stand to give them a longer life during serving.
