This Easy Jello Popsicles are a perfect summer treat! Slow melting and packed with flavor!

 Growing up in a small California town we spent our summers running barefoot on the hot ground, sunbathing, and playing hide-and-seek with the entire block. Our favorite pass time was running from house to house recruiting playmates and ridding our bikes down to the convenience store to grab Yoohoo’s with change found between the couch cushions or waiting for the ice cream truck. Those memories are some of the best I have and ones I can only hope my son will get to experience one day.

Since waiting for the ice cream truck can get slow I decided to take matters in to my own hands and whip up a few fun treats of my own. These slow melting pops have only four ingredients and they take you practically no time to make. We are big fans of the dixie cup method (just pour your pops straight into a dixie cup, freeze 20 minutes, add a popsicle stick, and freeze solid) but you can use regular popsicle molds if you’d like. They worked out perfectly to serve at our Summer Splash party. We had a variety of colors for the kids and adults to chose from. Each one flavored differently with the different flavor packs. We like to mix and match by sometimes combining two flavors in one. Wasn’t that the hip thing to do when you were younger?

The Jello added into the recipe makes these melt a little slower which is especially nice on hotter days. So the only question you really have left to ask is what flavor you are going to start with!

Easy Jell-O Popsicles

  1. In a pitcher, combine the Jell-O, Kool-Aid, sugar, and boiling water. Stir until dissolved.
  2. Mix in the cold water and pour into your molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until solid.

    Delicious and easy! My two faves!
    One of my favorite childhood treats – definitely those nasty white and pink frosted animal crackers with rainbow sprinkles. So gross, but I love them!
