FROZEN POPSICLES - Inspired by disney movie - Princess Elsa Ana - Easy Recipe - Ice lolly pop

We are so excited to make our first popsicle celebrating the movie Frozen. Being Scandinavian we wanted to celebrate the movie Frozen as it has many Scandinavian references such as Hans Christian Andersen, Norway.  Also we enjoyed all of the characters in the movie including Princess Elsa and Princess Anna, Prince Hans, iceman Kristoff, reindeer Sven, daydreaming snowman Olaf and of course the kingdom Arendelle.

This is a super easy and fast DIY tutorial on how to make your very own Frozen Popsicle.  Here we show you how to make two different ways of Frozen Popsicles.
  
Ingredients:
  • Rock Candy on a Stick (clear, light blue and dark blue)
  • blue food coloring
  • blueberry sparkling water
  • (optional) nonflavored sparkling water
  • Elderflower Syrup or Lingonberry Syrup (optional)
Kitchen Utensils:
  • Popsicle molds
  • measuring cup
  • wooden spoon 
  • large bowl or towel
Here we make two easy ways to make these Frozen Popsicles

First Easy Frozen Popsicle Recipe:
  1. Measure the amount of sparkling water you need in the molds.  Next pour the sparkling water into a measuring cup.
  2. Add 1 drop of blue food coloring and mix the water. Add more if you like it a little darker. 
  3. Pour the blue clear soda into the popsicle molds. Leave about a 1/4 of an inch space for expansion.
  4. Place a clear rock candy on a stick into each mold.
  5. Put the popsicle molds into the freezer
  6. Wait for at least 4 to 6 hours to make sure popicles are completely frozen or at least until it is not sloshing around inside.
  7. To un-mold the popsicles, fill a bowl with warm water, and submerge the mold in the water for about 15-30 seconds. If the popsicles don't slide out, submerge it for a few seconds longer.   Another option is to soak a towel with warm water and wrap the popsicle molds with the warm towel until it loosens up.
  8. Enjoy the popsicle

These are popsicles are perfect on a hot day, birthday parties or sleep overs. Make sure you have enough time to make these.  We usually make these the night before and let these freeze over night.
