Ahhh....what better to ease the dog days of summer than a sweet, fruity popsicle? My mom made these for us when I was a child and I couldn't help but carry on the tradition for my own children. There is nothing healthy about these... but relax...... it's summer! Enjoy them!
1 - 3oz box of Jell-o, any flavor (not sugar-free)
1 pkg of KoolAid, any flavor (not sugar-free)
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
1. Put all dry ingredients into a bowl (one with a spout works the best for filling the popsicle molds).
2. Add boiling water to dry ingredients and mix for about 2 minutes so that you know the sugar and Jell-o are dissolved.
3. Stir in cold water.
4. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups. If you use paper cups, cover them with aluminum foil before adding popsicle sticks. That will help the stick stay upright in the center.
I've learned that placing the molds/cups onto a baking sheet helps with the transfer to the freezer!
5. Freeze until set (I usually just freeze them over night).
