Right up there with an ice-cold glass of lemonade, there is nothing quite as capable of getting you through the dog days of summer like an ice pop. Though you could surely take a stroll through the freezer aisle, buy some pops and unwrap one without batting an eye, going the DIY route is the name of the game this summer. Don’t have ice pop molds? Not a problem. These homemade takes MacGyver the process so you don’t need any special equipment (besides the wooden ice pop sticks) to stay cool all summer long.
Your dentist may not be over the moon about all the sweet treats that you’re filling these little paper cups with, but the summer heat calls for some rule breaking. The Pioneer Woman uses the cups as vessels for her Ice Cream Freezer Pops, filling up each one with ice cream, crushed cookies and candies and spearing it with a stick for an easy summer party dessert.
