"Summer Social" Guest Project — Make Handmade Berrylicious Popsicles!!

Hey TT&J readers!!! I’m Cheryl, aka TidyMom! When I am not baking, crafting or running around with my camera you can find me over in my little corner of the universe at TidyMom.net
Like all of you I’m a HUGE fan of Jen’s and SO impressed with how much that girl can do!! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jen a few times, and let me tell you, she’s every bit as sweet, if not more, in person as she is on her blog.
I share a lot of stuff on my blog, everything from my favorite recipes to my favorite household tips. I like to share photography tips and blogging tips, crafting , being thrifty and makeovers and a little bit of everything in between. I host a weekly link up party on Fridays where you can share your great ideas, project or anything you are loving, called I’m Lovin’ It.

I thought since Jen was having a summer soiree, and I loooove to bring food to a party…….what’s a summer time party with out popsicles?!
These berrylicous popsicles are so easy, even the kids can join in on the fun!

What you will need:

Berry Blue Popsicles
  • 6 tablespoons berry blue gelatin
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups boiling water, divided
  • 2 cups cold water, divided
  • 6 tablespoons strawberry gelatin
  • 18 Popsicle molds or paper cups (3 ounces each) and Popsicle sticks
  1. In a small bowl, dissolve berry blue gelatin powder and 1/2 cup sugar in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 1 cup cold water.
  2. In another bowl, dissolve strawberry gelatin powder and remaining (1/2 cup) sugar in remaining (1 cup)boiling water. Stir in remaining (1 cup) cold water.
  3. In a small bowl, combine half of the berry blue gelatin mixture and half of the strawberry gelatin mixture. (so you now have 3 bowls of gelatin)
  4. Place all 3 bowls in freezer for about 2 hours or until slushy.
  5. In a large bowl, lightly swirl the three colors as desired.
  6. Fill each mold or cup with 1/4 cup gelatin mixture; top with holders or insert sticks into cups. Freeze.

Yields: about 10-18 pops depending on the size.

Big thanks to Jen and all of you for letting me stop by today!! Enjoy what’s left of your summer! We started school this week already!
