During the summer it seems like popsicles are a huge part of our lives. We eat them everyday. They are a fun and cool snack when the kids are playing hard in the back yard. Last year I bought some cute popsicle molds from IKEA and hadn’t ever used them, so I decided to make a quick batch of Kool-Aid popsicles.
To make these “princess” popsicles, I just chose to use pink and purple colored kool-aid. I made some with purple on the top and some with pink on the top.
We kind of messed up a bit and had to come up with an alternate method, but I will give some tips along the way of how yours can turn out better.
- Pour the top color of kool-aid into the molds a little less than half way.
- Stick in the freezer for about 2 1/2 hours.
- At this point the popsicles won’t be completely frozen, but it is a good time to pour the second color on top and shove the sticks in. There will probably be some color spilling, but it should be ok.
- Freeze overnight or at least 4 more hours.
We let the first color freeze too much and couldn’t get the sticks in so we put foil on top and poked the sticks through the foil to stand upright so they would freeze in the bottom color.
It worked out ok – we just had some wonky sticks that weren’t straight, but hey, it all tastes the same! These were very fun to eat and the kids loved them!! Next time we will make “monster popsicles” for my son with blue and green.
