Push-Up Pops by Courtney Dial Whitmore


“Push-Up Pops are the perfect treat for any occasion. This is a must-have book for all party lovers!” – Tori Spelling

“Filled with dozens of easy to follow recipes, Push-Up Pops layers your favorite flavors with pure fun to create adorable, individual tasty treats.” – Bakerella

“Whether you’re an experienced pastry chef or a home baker, you’ll fall in love with Courtney’s fun interpretation of Push-Up Pops… These are a great activity to make with your kids and will be a hit at any party!” – Amy Atlas

Push Up Pops by Courtney Dial WhitmoreWhen first presented with the idea of a book on push-up pops, I was ECSTATIC. They’re a hot new trend in the party world and a wonderful new way to serve sweet treats from pies to frozen desserts. The book is FULL of recipes for serving up these yummies. I can absolutely attest that every single recipe is fantastic (my fiance will also swear to this as he was a wonderful taste-tester).

Stay Tuned… for more information (and sneak peeks from INSIDE the book) soon… we can’t wait to share more! I’m just on cloud 9 excited about this book!

      Thanks Alicia!!! I know – I added it since it comes out only a couple of months before the wedding :) It doesn’t even look like “Me” yet since I’m not used to my new last name. You’re so sweet though, thanks for being my 1st “comment” :)

    I enjoyed working with you on this, but, I have to confess—I broke my rigid policy of not eating anything off of the set … but how could I resist the “Birthday Brownie Sundae” … oh my! I’m not even gonna mention the other indulging … oh what the heck … Bellini! I’m looking forward to our next project together—go get married and then let’s get to work girl! :)

    Congrats Courtney!! Love that you’ve used your new name!! I’ve never heard of push up pops (must be an American thing?) but I’m about to go and google them :-)

    • 27

      Hi Kate! They might just be American – they’re a newer trend. Though they were seen years ago when used in the Flintstones Ice Cream treat – and now the plastic containers are made and used for parties, etc. :)

    Dear Courtney,
    I am a member of the good cook book club. I was so excited when I saw your cookbook on Push -up Pops. I did not order the book because I wnted the “easy- to- find clear plastic molds. I can not find them ANYWHERE. I looked and looked and looked and called so many places. Would appreciate you telling me where I can get these NOT easy to find molds. THANK YOU.

      Hi Dee, you can find them at Michaels (wilton makes them), Amazon (just type push-up pops in the search bar), Etsy (type push-up pops in search),, and

      • 59

        Hey Dee and Courtney, you can also get them at our newer shopping site at Courtney, this is the newer site from our original site that you listed in your book:) We will start redirecting all of our new customers there.

    I loved the book. I need help though, I made the margarita pops per the recipe and they leaked out the bottom as our guest had them creating a sticky mess. Any suggestions?

    • 61

      Hi Kelsey! How strange! I’ve even filled mine with water to test if they leak and never had a problem. Where did you buy them?

      • 62
        Kelsey Metzger says:

        I bought them through Amazon who sold them for the push pop container store. They were still a hit, just thought you might have some suggestions for the future. Thanks for the speedy response

    Oh my goodness, I love this! I’d love to be inspired to keep perfecting my cupcake skills!!
