Enjoy the last few days of summer with these tasty, sweet Watermelon Candy Popsicles.
I don’t know about you but I am not ready for summer to be over yet. The long, warm days, evening strolls along the river, flip flops. All to soon those things will end and it will be time for sweaters and hot cocoa. Don’t get me wrong I love a good cup of cocoa and crisp, cool nights but I love the summer even more. So this month is dedicated to celebrating all things summer.
A few weeks ago we had family over for dinner. We live by a river with a walking trail and we all decided to go for a walk after dinner. A quick 15 minute stroll somehow turned in to a 2 hour walk and by the time we got back home we were exhausted and craving something cool and refreshing. I whipped out my blender and made a few batches of my Slushes and they were gone within seconds. As I was digging through the cabinet trying to find Kool-Aid to make more slushes I found a packet of watermelon Kool-Aid. As soon as I started blending it reminded me of a Watermelon Jolly Rancher and they tasted just like it too.
So the next day I made my slush mix sans the ice and froze them in some popsicle molds. We went out to the park and came home with half the neighborhood after my boys had told them we had candy popsicles at home. These were so good and a great way to cool down after an afternoon of playing. Keep the dreams of summer alive and make these sweet and tangy popsicles today!
Do you ever have trouble trying to get popsicles out of the mold without pulling the stick out? Run the molds under warm water for a few seconds and they will slide right out!
