popsicles

Fruity-Pops

  • 4 cups water (2 cups plus 2 cups)

  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 packet kool-aid type drink mix
  • 2/3 to 1 cup sugar (to taste)
  • Molds, Sticks, Freezer

Pour 2 cups of water into a glass bowl. Sprinkle on the gelatin. Microwave on high for 2 to 4 minutes, or until the water just starts to boil. Watch it closely. You can also do this in a saucepan on the stove, over medium heat. Remove the bowl from the microwave or the pan from the stove and stir the mixture for a minute or two to dissolve the gelatin. Stir in the kool-aid and sugar, again stirring a lot to dissolve everything completely. Add the remaining 2 cups of water. Pour the flavored juice into molds and freeze.


Pudding-Pops

  • 1 package (4-serving size) instant pudding mix

  • 3 cups reconstituted or fresh milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Molds, Sticks, Freezer

In a large bowl combine the pudding mix, milk and sugar. Beat with electric beaters or a wire whisk until thickened. Fill the molds and freeze.

Chocolate pudding makes fudge-pops. Vanilla pudding makes cream-pops & butterscotch pudding makes caramel-pops.


Juicy-Pops

  • 12 ounce can of juice concentrate

  • 4 cups water (2 cups plus 2 cups)
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (1/4-oz)
