1 (3 ounce) package
fruit flavored Jell-O® mix
unsweetened, flavored soft drink mix package
These brought back memories of my childhood. I wouldn't advise cutting back on the water that much, as they would be too sweet. My three year old has been devouring these.
My daughter made this and instead of putting in unsweetened, flavored soft drink mix (witch we didn’t have and couldn’t find) she added more jello. There was a big piece of hardened jello at the bottom.
These turned out great and they made aton! The lids picked the flavors....melon Jello and strawberry Kool-aid. They mixed up quick and a bonus....the jello keeps them from being too drippy! Thanks Gareth!
Learned how to make this from Grandma when I was a kid. Works great and is less drippy than most ice pops. My kids prefer the watermelon/strawberry combo but I favor the orange kind. NOTE: This also can be made with half the sugar and SF jello and come out just fine. Cheap way to make popsicle makers is using dixie cups and popsicle/craft sticks. Both can be bought super cheaply.
This recipe was great, my only thing that I didn't like was how hard the popsicles were when done. So the next time that I made them I brought the cold water down 2 cups and just evened it out to 1.5 liters.
These Ice Pops are SO easy to make (and so inexpensive). My daughter enjoyed helping me stir them up. Putting them into paper cups is a great idea because the side can be torn down to make eating the pop easy. I like these best when they sit out for a few minutes before eating -- then they become like the consistencey of a store ice pop. ENJOY!
My aunt used to make these popsicles and I loved them. The flavor lasts till the end.
What FUN for kids (ok...I liked them too)!! Very easy to make, and worked well with artificially sweetened jello. I did add a tad extra sugar in case! They turned out exceptionally well made in ice cube trays...filled nearly 4 trays! Simple and rewarding!
