Candy Surprise! Sweet treat hidden in these popsicle ice pops!

Popsicle Ice Pops

Recently a candy store moved into our neighborhood. Of course, our kids were elated! We wanted to limit the amount of sugar the kids were consuming, and still enjoy the magic, fun and “event” of the candy store.

Each of our kids (we have six kiddos) got to pick a child sized handful of candy.

After eating one piece of candy we put the rest of the treats into Popsicle molds. Then we filled the molds up with lemonade and froze them.

Some of the sweet candy that my children chose for their popsicle ice pops included candied fruit wedges, gummy rope, jelly beans, gummy bears, licorice sticks, even some silly gummy spiders.  


The finished products were almost too gorgeous to eat! But that didn’t actually slow the kids down. They said these candy popsicles were as yummy as they were beautiful!
