It was getting hot outside, and the demand for something cold and icy was more than the supply. And the local dollar store ran out of popsicle molds! What to do? Though spoons in cups are my usual remedy, this solution is a bit nicer.
I used: little freezer containers, wooden popsicle sticks, a screwdriver and a hammer.
With the lid on the container, pound the screwdriver in the center of the lid just until it goes through.
My screwdriver was a bit small, and I was able to widen the hole with a popsicle stick. The sticks fit snugly in the hole and are at the same time easy to remove.
Wash containers and lids before use.
They freeze into rather chunky popsicles! But they'll do!
Here's another idea regarding using popsicle molds that was recently passed on to me: when the pops are frozen, unmold them and wrap each one in plastic wrap. Then re-fill the mold, and use popsicle sticks in them. You can make a huge supply this way so they are always available.
