YUMMY Kool-Aid Popsicles

It's so funny how something as simple as Kool-Aid and popsicle molds can be SO EXCITING to a 4 yr old (and of course a mommy too). Here is a super easy, fun, and cheap classic that we did today: Kool-Aide Popsicles

1. Mix Kool-Aid (we chose Black Cherry) with 1 1/2 cups sugar and water. Stir well.


(Please ignore the white "chalky" look he has going on. Its just sunscreen
he didn't get washed off really good in the shower. Sometimes it works a lil to well, you really have to SCRUB on it!)


2. Pour into popsicle molds. (After going to Amazon, I found you can get a variety of different styles such as Rocket Ships, Jewels, and Cute Sprials.) We also poured some leftover Kool-Aid into ice molds as well.



3. Wait about 6 hours and then ENJOY!
After we each took a lick, we looked at each other with grins and both said "that is sooo yummy!". In fact we liked them so much we both had 2 and quickly made our second set for tomorrow. =) It was sooo simple and basically after you purchase the molds, your only cost is about 20 cents for Kool-Aid and the cost of sugar.

On a side note: I had looked up the recipe after we bought the kool-aide and saw most of the recipes online actually added a box of jello as well. Not quite sure what it will do to it, but tonight when we were at Wal-Mart I went ahead and bought some so we could try it out if we want. We really did LOVE the way we did it though so we might just stick with our original recipe. =)

Those are cool popsicle molds! My girls still like popsicles. You can use chocolate pudding and make fudgesicles.
