I officially declare 2011 The Summer of the Popsicle. It's a nice follow up to 2010 The Summer of the S'more.
My family discovered frozen fruit bars last summer. I felt better about serving a snack that is fruit and juice. It became spendy because a box never lasted more than a few days after I brought it home from the store.
Lo and behold, the winter holidays dropped a family gift of a set of BPA free plastic Popsicle molds from the Soft Landing (hi Alicia!) our chimney. Thanks, Santa me!
Last week Mother Nature turned off the cold and turned up the heat to full blast. Ahhhh, a nice homemade frozen fruit bar would be refreshing in this weather.
