It might be that I have a thing for popsicles. Maybe they’re the summer cupcakes? You know, small and adorable and available in a wide variety of colors and flavors is the name of my game.*
*Actually, if I had a game, it would probably be titled something like “Cybidon’s Choice” and it would be a dramatic timed contest to see who could throw out the most expired ingredients from my pantry the fastest. Spoiler alert: I lose every time.
Alternately, my game could be “pick a super easy recipe and make it forty times harder than it need be.” My submission for the grand prize? This right here!
This recipe is so easy and fun, naturally I had to make it a billion times worse by going ombre with it. (Are you sick of ombre yet? Yes? THEN GET OUT WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON.) Basically, I took a fast recipe and tripled the time it takes to make, which is just very typical of me.
You can obviously make this same recipe but with just one flavor, which is great but not nearly as fun… assuming you have enough free time to make your frozen ombre dreams come true.
PS: Sorry for my absence, dear humans. I’m back! Maybe not quite as frequently as before but hopefully not “one post every 2 months” anyway.
recipe from A Pretty Life
1 package of Jell-O
1 package of Kool-Aid
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold water
1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the Jell-O and Kool-Aid powder with the sugar. Stir in the boiling water until the mixture has completely dissolved, then stir in the cold water. Pour into popsicle molds with sticks and freeze until completely solid.
Note: For the ombre effect, I chose three different flavors (watermelon, strawberry, and black cherry) of both Jell-O and Kool-Aid, prepared the recipe three separate times, then filled the popsicle molds 1/3 of the way full with each flavor. I let the popsicles freeze and harden in between every layer which tripled the prep time for this recipe. Also, as I only have one popsicle mold (and tripling the recipe yields more popsicle liquid than I could use) I froze the extra liquids in a ice cube tray to use for sodas, lemonades, etc.
