Jell-O comes in so many yummy flavors (hello, have you tried the Jolly Rancher flavors!?) and I have been trying to find the perfect way to use it to make popsicles. When my boys and I made this batch we nailed it! The Jell-O popsicles were easy to make and when they started to melt they just become a Jell-O consistency on the stick instead of running down the stick making a melty mess! We will be making these quite often this summer and next time I am trying them with fruit!

- (1) 3oz package of Jell-O
- 4 cups of water
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar (optional)
- Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. In a medium bowl mix sugar and Jell-O powder. Stir in boiling water, stirring constantly until Jell-O and sugar are completely dissolved (about 2 minutes).
- Stir 2 cups of cold water into bowl and then pour mixture into popsicle molds.
**Affiliate link to the exact mold I purchased and used** This made about 40 ounces and we had 8 ounces left after filling our 10 slot popsicle mold. I put the remaining mix into the fridge and my boys ate it after it set.
This is what the popsicles look like when they start to melt… all you can see is condensation. They go from being frozen to a gelatin consistency and they don’t melt like typical popsicles.
