Over the years, I've built up quite the collection of popsicle molds - a girl needs options. People always ask me where I get my molds. Some I've purchased online from Amazon, some I've received as gifts (friends, you know me so well), but most are ones that I've spotted in supermarkets and dollar stores over the years.
Keep your eyes peeled for seasonal end caps. When summer draws near, you'll find all sorts of fun props and tools, including popsicle molds. If I see a popsicle mold for a dollar or two or three, I'll pick up a couple. Not only is it fun to have a variety of shapes and sizes of molds at home to choose from, it also allows you to make more at once!
I tend to have at least one bag of "kid popsicles" and one bag of "adult popsicles" in the freezer at all times during the summer. Kid popsicles are really just anybody popsicles. And as I'm sure you can guess, the adult ones are boozy! I love trying new boozy combinations, and have used everything from beer to wine to hard liquor.
Today, I took the flavors and look of a classic cocktail (the Tequila Sunrise) and transformed them into a cocktail on a stick. They are good. No, they are beyond good - they are FANTASTIC! It takes a little more effort to make these than just pouring and freezing since you want to form (muddled) layers, but it's only an extra 5 minutes here and there during the freezing process. Totally worth it.
p.s. - Dollar stores are also great places to pick up large packs of wooden popsicle sticks (often labeled wooden craft sticks) and wax paper for a steal!
