For my birthday I bought myself silicone popsicle molds. My kids love to make popsicles no matter what time of year it is, however my plastic molds, break easily. I don’t even understand why; right now it’s currently broken into 4 pieces. I know, why didn’t I just throw it away? Well, it still works, just a pain to set up.
I got these molds from Amazon for around $13, since then they have gone up in price. You get 8 molds and they are all different colors, now when I bought these some reviews said they lost their shape after being used or wash and were hard to use but I have had no problems with these molds.
They don’t hold a lot, which I honestly think is great because that’s less sugar my kids are eating and perfect for just a small snack. Can you lay them down? Well, no. The liquid would leak out. I place my molds up right in a container until they’re frozen, then they are fine to lay flat. I’ve used them a few times already and they still hold up their shape and the lid still fits perfect. I do suggest not filling them to the top because then you will make a bit of a mess as you put the lid back on.
My kids favorite popsicle for me to make is, surprisingly, Fudgesicles. Sometimes my daughter can be anti chocolate but she loved these and kept asking me to make more. To be honest, if it wasn’t for this quarantine, I don’t think I would have made them.
I stocked up on evaporated milk, by stocked up I mean I bought three cans. At the time the grocery store had no milk and I knew you can use evaporated milk to make “milk” if needed. Have I tried it? Honestly no, but I have been told it doesn’t taste the same.
The only thing I have used evaporated milk for is Mac N Cheese, I wanted to use it for more things so I went searching on the internet. If you have some evaporated milk that you’re trying to use, just go straight to the company website. CarnationMilk has recipes on their site that uses evaporated milk and that’s where I found this recipe.
All you need:
1 Can of Evaporated Milk
1/3 Cup of chocolate syrup
Put them in your molds and freeze.
It’s that simple to get such a delicious treat.
