A couple months ago Penolopy Bulnick froze some Jell-o in the Test Kitchen. It was strange... but also pretty awesome! I remembered the experiment last week and did some googling and it turns out that Jell-o popsicles are everywhere. I can't remember seeing an instructable about it, so I really wanted to share it - they're unlike any popsicles I've had before.
Jell-o popsicles are something I'm super sad that I never ate as a child - they're gummy AND frozen! The perfect combination. :D
They also drip slightly less, so they're good for small kids. And they're softer and easier to eat than normal popsicles, so I bet they'd be awesome for teething.
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 3 oz package of Jell-o
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup cold water
- sprinkles (optional but sooooo fancy)
You'll also want some popsicle molds. I used these Zoku fish pop molds - they're adorable and perfect for blue Jell-o. They have little fish butts as the sticks! And bones inside!! UGGGHHHHHH so cute. :D
I also poured the excess Jell-o mix into a large ice cube tray for extra popsicles and improvised some covers and sticks.
