This little popsicle set is one of the best impulse buys I’ve made all year. Seriously.
The set only holds six small popsicles at one time, and if I could have chosen any color for the handles I probably would have gone with off-white or something less… uh… bold than these bright orange ones. But I am pretty sure they were around $3 at Wal-mart when I bought the set. So, hey, no complaining here.
Other great impulse buys I’ve made during late night Wal-mart runs lately: a faux chambray button-up shirt, a dress (yeah, that’s right. I own a dress from Wal-mart), way too many NYC nail polishes, How to Train Your Dragon on DVD and faux yellow flowers (I’m making a hair wreath, so there).
Random. I know. But I think this popsicle set is the winner for best impulse buy. Mainly due to the fact that I’ve used it a bunch already. Sometimes with less success than these… for example…
In fact, that would be awesome. It was a half-way decent idea, if I do say so myself.
Problem: honey doesn’t freeze really well. And that whole layered-look is a lot harder to achieve than I thought.
Live and learn.
Blackberries and Cream Popsicles, make 6 with a little left over to sip.
Ingredients: 8 ounces frozen blackberries, 1 cup heavy cream (you can use milk if you want fewer calories, but it won’t be as creamy!), 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water.
In a blender puree all ingredients until well mixed. Pour into popsicle tray and freeze over night. Enjoy on your back porch after washing the dinner dishes, while watching the sun set. If you want to be picturesque about it.
By-the-by a few of popsicles from this set stuck to their case too much, making it hard to get them out. Others did fine (like the ones pictured). But does anybody know a good trick for making sure your popsicles don’t stick to their tray?
