4. Push a wooden stick 3/4 of the way into the center of ice cream.
5. Set finished pop on a plate, tray or muffin tin, and place in freezer.
6. Chill for 2 hours, or until set.
7. Cut small notch at top of cup, and tear it away while holding the stick.

*Tip: Each layered pop will need 1/4 cup of ice cream and a few tablespoons of filling.

**Tip: Add crumbly layers like pistachios next to sticky layers like caramel so the frozen ice cream pop will stay together.
