Everybody out there … let’s take a chill. I don’t care what age you are, you are never to old to have fun. We only have about 90 days or so to enjoy the season of Summer, and next week it officially starts. Let’s celebrate it’s rebirth with an old-fashioned favorite – Frozen Pops on a stick!
Forget about the fuss and muss and head for the outdoors! Savoring the flavorful wetness of a frozen dessert is truly a treat, whether it is enjoyed on the porch, a carpet of green grass, or an open field. What do you say? Let’s welcome a Brain Freeze with open arms; life is just too short to have it any other way.
Here are the Ice Pop Molds I like to use. They are excellent! The handles have a drip guard to keep your hands and clothes clean. What I like most about them is how easy the frozen treats come out of the molds. I also LOVE the sturdy base, which is compact and keeps the pops standing upright – especially important when they are in the freezing process. They are called Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds, and I can’t say enough good things about them.
Now for making some delicious frozen treats … there are some great recipes posted on the web for all to see. If you like the flavor of strawberry, you definitely need to check out this Strawberry Pretzel recipe from www.oneshetwoshe.com! Super delicious and easy to do.
