The kids in the neighborhood seem to play HERE now — which I have no problem with, but the asking me for treats is going to get old quickly……especially when they ask for seconds! (not happening, LOL)
I have MORE than enough Kool-Aid packets that I scored for $.05 last year. Seriously, I could make a pitcher a day and be fine a year from now…
What surprises me is the kids ASKING for snacks, and specific snacks at that: apples, cookies, etc.
I would NEVER have been that bold when I was a kiddo…
But, true Tupperware Lady that I am, it’s time to pull out the Ice Tup Popsicle Makers!
I will share the recipe below for the dripless popsicles, but wanted to share this BEYOND BRILLIANT idea from my friend Anne: When you give out popsicles and want to make sure you get the sticks back – make the kids turn in a shoe for the popsicle. They get the shoe back when they bring the stick back.
I told you – BRILLIANT!!!
So, here is the classic Tupperware recipe…The gelatin in the recipe solidifies the popsicles enough that they don’t make a mess while being eaten.
1 packaged unsweetened Kool-Aid
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup boiling water
2 cups cold water
Place gelatin in bowl (I use the Tupperware Mix-N-Store). Add boiling water and mix until it is dissolved. Add sugar and Kool-Aid. Dissolve as much as possible. Add cold water, and continue mixing until all particles are gone. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. This makes enough to fill THREE sets of molds, or 18 popsicles.
I have a lot of other recipes HERE from a previous post.
Now… off to dig through my baskets for the perfect Shoe Pawn Shop!!
