About: Hello and Welcome to In the Kitchen With Matt. I am your host Matt Taylor. My goal for the show is to teach you how to cook really good food at home for cheap. Eating out everyday can get expensive, but it doe…

In this Instructable I will show you how to make popsicles, more specifically, easy ice cube tray popsicles. We loved making these as kids, such a fun little treat to make and eat during the summer time. These popsicles are super simple to make, let's get started!

Don't forget to check out my other Instructables. :)

Step 2: Fill Up the Tray

First let's fill up our ice cube tray with our liquid, in this case I am using orange juice, 90 percent of the time making these as kids we used orange juice, a big favorite of ours.

Step 3: Wrap, Stick, Freeze

Next we take a piece of plastic wrap and cover the ice cube tray tightly. Aluminum foil will probably work fine too. I just always use plastic wrap. Then take your toothpicks and poke them through the plastic wrap and push them to the bottom of each individual cube. The plastic wrap helps keep the toothpick in place. If your toothpicks happen to be super long, just break them in half, like I did. Now once you are done, put them in the freezer for at least 4 to 6 hours, overnight is better.

Step 4: Remove, Twist, Serve

After they have frozen, we remove the plastic wrap, then twist the ice cube tray to loosen up the little popsicles, then remove them. Now enjoy!

Step 5: Video Tutorial

Now check out those steps in action by watching the short video tutorial. :)

    I tried this once with soda, but when I sucked on them the suhar came out and left me with a normal ice cube. Better luck next time xD

    Wow! Just the opening picture brought back memories of doing this during childhood in the 1950's and 60's! Good to see that some people are still doing it this way!

    Awesome!! :) Very fond memories for me making them in the early 80s! I was probably 5 or 6 the first time I had them. Good times!
