I made these for my children and now will be making them for my granddaughter. Putting them in paper drink cups saves on messy fingers!

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. Read More

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. Read More

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.

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More
