My kids, like any other kids, LOVE Popsicles! Most days they can manage to eat them like civil little people. Other days not so much. And let’s face it, that little one although cute, is a walking mess. The tribe has also been politely reminding me that they want to make homemade Popsicles.
I walked in to WalMart the other day and lo and behold, Popsicle molds were on sale for 88 cents. So I grabbed a few. Then a quick search yielded this quick, simple and fairly mess free recipe.
- 1 3 ounce package of jello
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 cups cold water
In a large bowl whisk together jello powder, sugar and boiling water. Stir until well combined. This may take several minutes. Add cold water. Pour in to molds and place in freezer. Let freeze 6 hours or overnight. When ready to eat run warm water over the molds to loosen.
As the Popsicles get warmer they become more of the consistency of warm jello. Not leaving little drips all over.
