Perfect Homemade Popsicles

Sometimes, you just need to be a kid again.  If that means having popsicle sword fights in the backyard ... so be it.

These popsicles bring me back to my childhood.  I remember making them with my mom, and eating them on hot summer days.  I'd slurp up the melty part that pooled in the holder if I wasn't fast enough, or the sun was just too hot.

Perfect Homemade Popsicles
(Makes at least 2 trays full - 3 if small trays)

1 small package Jello (any flavour)
1 package Kool-Aid (any flavour)
2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
2 cup very cold water

Mix the Jello, Kool-Aid, and boiling water.  Stir well.  Add the sugar and cold water.  Pour into popsicle trays.  Freeze for a couple of hours.

The easiest way to remove a popsicle from the tray is to run the tray under really hot water for 10 seconds or so to loosen the popsicle.


The Jello makes the popsicles easy to bite into ...

What treats remind you of summer?

Yum, those look soo good and soo refreshing! My babysitter made home made popsicles and they were the best. Popsicles make me think of summer, as does watermelon, icees, and ice cream!
