Best Licks Ever! Popsicles

This recipe should be a staple in anyone’s home that has little kids or anyone who simply loves popsicles. This recipe has been passed down from my
Grandma and loved by many… What makes these popsicles better than any other? The trick of using Jell-O for one of the liquids makes the popsicle flavour last from the very first lick to the very last slurp…Another tasty recipe from the SugarBaby Brown Sugar Kitchen.
 
Kool-aid & Jell-O Popsicles
Yields: 6-12 popsicles depending on container
 
What You Need:
1 pkg Kool-aid mix
1 pkg Jell-O
1 cup light or golden brown sugar
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold water
 
What To Do:
  1. Choose Jell-O and Kool-aid flavours that compliment each other like cherry lime or berry blue and raspberry. Create a one-of-a-kind Popsicle flavour of your choosing.
  2. Dissolve the Jell-O and brown sugar together in the boiling water.
  3. In a separate bowl dissolve the Kool-aid in the cold water.
  4. Combine both mixtures together in a measuring bowl or something with a spout. Stir until completely combined.
  5. Pour into Popsicle moulds or ice cube trays.
  6. Freeze until firm and enjoy a cool treat on a hot day!
 
Sweet Advice
Make two-tone Popsicles
  •  Make the first batch using one flavour (like red cherry) and fill the popsicle moulds half way and leave to freeze overnight.
  • Continue by making the second batch (maybe purple grape.) Top off the already frozen cherry Popsicles with your grape mixture. Pop on the popsicle tops and/or sticks and finish freezing.
  • Wake up to two-tone, double-flavoured popsicles!
