Cake Batter Snacks n' Stuff Popsicles

This week I was inspired by all the amazing Popsicles as part of #popsicleweek, and my brain created this: Cake Batter Snacks n' Stuff Popsicle! The creator of this fantastical week of sweet and chilly treats is the voice behind the blog wit and vinegar, Billy.  Billy's totally adorable and infectious enthusiasm for his creations comes out through the writing of his blog, as well, he is working on his first cookbook!  So excited to get my mits on it!  Check out all these other amazing #popsicleweek creations HERE.

'Murica, we love your snacks!  Nobody believes us when we say that we go to the states just to load up on snacks.  But it's the honest truth, and this recent trip to Montana did not disappoint.  I found some craaaazay kinds of cereal, like Cap'n Crunch Sprinkled Donut Crunch?!  and Cap'n Crunch's Caramel Popcorn Crunch?!...the Cap'n's crazy, man.
We also came across this new Chex Mix variety Popped sweet and salty, I thought the popcorn in this mix might go soggy?  So I ate it all out of the mix a precautionary measure.
'Murica also has like a gazillion different kids of Gold Fish crackers than we do, both the sweet and savoury variety.  For this recipe I used the strawberry shortcake, and cinnamon flavoured Gold Fish, the cupcake and brownie ones we have in Canada would also work deliciously. Snack time!

Cake Batter Snacks n' Stuff Popsicles

1 can full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup vanilla flavoured almond milk (or your fave nut milk)
1/4 cup dry cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Rainbow Bit)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 cup (approx.) snacks! (pretzels, candy coated chocolate pieces, sweet n' salty chex mix; cinnamon & strawberry shortcake Gold Fish, Cap'n Crunch Sprinkled doughnut cereal, Sprinkles, etc!)

In a medium bowl, or large measuring cup (the spout is handy!) mix together the coconut milk, and almond milk, along with the vanilla bean paste.  Stir in the dry cake mix, until combined, then add all the snacks.  Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds, you might have the push down bits of snack with the popsicle stick, to ensure you leave room for enough liquid (milk mixture), finish with additional sprinkles, if desired.  Place popsicle mold carefully in your freezer, and freeze for at least 4-6 hours, if not overnight.  To release the popsicles from the mold run under hot water, or place mold in a warm water bath for 30-60 sec, and gently pull out your creations!
