Hey yo! While summer break is quickly coming to an end the summer heat for some of you isn’t. Here is a refreshing cool treat for the kiddos – DUM DUM Lollipopsicles, a.k.a DUM DUM Popsicles or DUM DUMSICLES. Now I can’t take credit for this, my brilliant 5 year-old nephew came up with this idea. You literally make popsicles with DUM-DUM pops and it turns into little flavored popsicles. They are so yummy and simple to make. All you need is a popsicle mold or ice cube tray, water and DUM-DUMS.
Then grab a popsicle mold or an ice cube tray. The popsicle mold I used was perfect because you could jam the DUM-DUM pop into the bottom and the stick would be straight up. You might have to get a little creative to keep the sticks straight if you use an ice cube tray.
I added an 1/8 cup of water to each mold. If you add more the flavor is more diluted. If you add less the flavor is more intense. Just make sure you are able to cover the DUM-DUM pop with water.
Let it sit out for about 2-3 minutes or until the water changes to the color of the lollipops. If you stick it in the freezer right away the candy doesn’t melt all the way and there is a little ball of candy in the middle.
Let them freeze. Run hot water over the mold and pull the stick out and enjoy a sweet summer treat.
My kids loved them. I mean what kid doesn’t love sugar water? They enjoy picking out their flavors and adding the pops to the mold.
Now I bet you have some DUM-DUM pops in your pantry right now. Go ahead and freeze them up. Your kids will think you are the coolest mom ever. Kid invented, kid approved.
