So, this may be the easiest summer treat you have ever made! Your kids will think you are the greatest, and the hardest part of the "recipe" (ha ha) is the waiting for it to freeze! My kids love lollipops, soda pop, and popsicles~ and so I combined them all to make a TRIPLE POP kind of treat!
How to make LolliPOPsicles...
We made our popsicle treats with July 4th in mind, but you can choose any lollipop in any color that you like! First, unwrap the lollipops...I tied a small ribbon on each stick before we made the pops~
It is much easier to tie on a ribbon before you make the popsicles-
We used Sprite for the popsicles. We poured Sprite into small, plastic containers (like Tupperware) and placed in freezer for about an hour...
Next, we pushed the lollipop into the semi-frozen popsicle. My daughter wanted to sprinkle red, white, and blue sprinkles on top. It was such a cute idea- and so we did all of the popsicles with sprinkle
We also used star-shaped sprinkles...big hit!
And so, after much waiting (they kept peeping and so it took longer to freeze)...the lollipop popsicles were ready to enjoy!
A few notes...the lollipops should be inserted in the Sprite after the Sprite has frozen a little bit. Also, the lollipop will dissolve a little which made the color in the popsicle. Serve popsicles with a bowl or cup.
We also tried a candy stick as the "stick" of the popsicle, but guess what? It was too sticky!! :) It didn't stop the kids from eating it, but the candy sticks were a little messy!
Enjoy! And, let me know if you try these or have any other lollipop popsicle ideas to share!!
