DIY Dessert Pops: Tips & Tricks

⭑ Leave about 1/2 inch of space at the top of each ‘sicle: The pops expand as they freeze.

⭑ To make the pops easier to remove from the mold, try this trick just before eating: Run the mold under warm water for about 30 seconds, and then gently pull it out by the handle or stick.

⭑ If using molds that don’t come with handles and require popsicle sticks to be added, first cover the mold with aluminum foil. Then gently slide a stick through the foil into the center of each pop.
