Poofy Cheeks: Jell-O Popsicle Recipe

Jell-O Popsicle Recipe


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!

Jell-O Popsicles

Ingredients
  • (1) 3oz package of Jell-O
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (optional)
Directions
  • 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.

  4. I am wondering why is all the extra sugar necessary?

    1. I'm wondering about this as well, Jell-O is sweet enough on its own, does the sugar serve any purpose other than extra sweetener?

    2. We made these without sugar as kids and it makes them tarter which I prefer

    3. Add Koolaid to the Jello. Only add 1 cup of sugar and 2 cups of hot water, dissolve, then add 2 cup of cold water. Perfect! I've been making them for 40 years!

  6. Because you only live once and sugar is awesome.

  7. I agree, what is the purpose of the added sugar?

    1. maybe because the recipe asks for twice the water than just preparing the jello regularly, I think...

  9. Sugar it is in every thing but when it comes to kids I want them to be healthy I tried them without the extra sugar they taste fine try it

  10. We made these when I was a child and again for my daughter, but we also put a pkg of unsweetened kool-aid in as well, and not as much sugar. They are more tart, with more flavour.

  11. THANK-YOU FOR SHARING. I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT IF JELL-O COULD BE USED TO MAKE POPSICLE'S OR NOT. WE USED TO MAKE JELL-O PUDDING FUDGESICLES WHEN I WAS A KID.
