Buy your favorite instant pudding mix and make according to package directions. Spoon into cute ice cube trays (I got these at IKEA) or Popsicle molds. Personally I like the ice cube tray size because I have small children and they can't make as much of a mess. Place some sort of handle in each Popsicle (I used tooth picks) and freeze. It's that easy and they taste great! If it's hard to unmold them just turn upside down and run hot water over the bottom of the try for a few seconds and they should come right out.

Just pop your bread into the toaster and make it like you normally would. Above I have classic jelly & banana. Then I threw in peanut butter and chocolate frosting. Quite good!
