Popsicle Technical Difficulties

in Disasters, Ice Cream / Frozen Treats

Oops!  Too Full!

Contrary to popular belief not everything in my kitchen comes out camera ready. In fact, more often than I’d like to admit some dishes come out looking like this. A warning to you all: if the popsicle box instructions state that you should leave a half inch of room at the top of the mold you should do just that. As liquids freeze they expand, and if you’re a greedy jerk and choose not to heed their words of advice you’ll end up with a freezer shelf full of exploding Root Beer Float pops. Still tasty, but not exactly pretty and very sticky. Stay tuned! Take two for these treats will occur tomorrow.

They still look tasty!! It is kind of neat looking the way the streams froze down the sides. Sticky I bet! I would be interested to see the next bath – as I have some root beer sitting around here looking for a purpose!

I LOVE rootbeer floats. a little exploding foam wouldn’t deter me from these pops.
