Popsicles are easy to make treats that are always a hit with kids. When you make them at home instead of buying them, you have a lot more options when it comes to flavors (sweetened fruit juices are great options, for instance) than you do when picking them out at the store. You also have more choices when it comes to shapes because there are some fantastic and fanciful popsicle molds out there. These Lickety Pops Freezer Pops are especially likely to appeal to kids, since they look like silly, giant, pink tongues! The silicone pop molds are sealed at the bottom so you need to push the frozen pop up to the top to eat it. They’re less messy than popsicles on sticks, since there shouldn’t be any drips falling onto waiting hands. They also include lids for sealing the pops up while they’re freezing, so you don’t need to struggle to position them upright in your freezer.
I’ve used push up silicone popsicle molds with great results, and this really is an excellent design when it comes to making ice pops. The only downside to this one is that they’re sold in a set of two, so you might want to pick up an extra pair if you’re going to be serving these to a crowd (because the odds are good that any kid who sees one is going to want one).
