Tips and Tricks for Making Popsicles

  • Be sure to use the best kind of popsicle mold for the type of popsicle you are making. Read the instructions to use it properly.
  • When you’re ready to serve your popsicles, it helps to run the mold under hot water just for a couple of seconds. This will help you to remove the popsicles quickly and easily.
  • I don’t recommend letting the popsicles sit out at room temperature. The popsicles will thaw unevenly and may also break.
