You only need a few things:
1 box Jello
1 packet Kool-Aid
1 and 1/4 cups sugar
You can use any flavors of jello and kool-aid that you think sound good together. I chose peach jello and peach mango kool-aid.
I'd just make sure that the colors wouldn't blend together to make brown.
Nobody wants a creepy brown popsicle.
Aaaaaanyway, put the sugar and kool-aid
and jello in a freezer ziplock.
Shake the bag to combine the ingredients.
FYI, 2 year olds are really great at shaking things.
Shaker extraordinaires, if you will.
The nice thing about this recipe is that you can just make a small batch of popsicles at a time and can easily save the mix to use another time. Or, do the math to make more popsicles!
To make 6 popsicles, combine 6 tablespoons of powdered mix with 3/4 cup of boiling water. Stir to be sure the powder is dissolved. I did this part, so that Gracie didn't risk getting burned. Then, add 3/4 cup of cold water. Stir to combine.
Pour the liquid mixture into popsicle molds.
Freeze until hard and enjoy your tasty work!
I love how Leah is being all stoic (she was making that face to be silly) and Maggie can't help but giggle :)
Enjoy your weekend! We are headed to a wedding on Saturday...should be fun!
If you don't have a wedding on Saturday, I bet you could make popsicles ;)
