Last time, we entered the Kool-Aid-o-Rama Dome (my new nickname for my kitchen), we froze up a batch of Fruit-Flavored Ice Cubes. This time, we keep it freezy with some Double Delight from the Kids’ Creations section.
This is easily the most head scratching recipe name in the book. These are Kool-Aid popsicles. I don’t understand where the “double” is coming from. At first I thought it was a reference to the higher concentration of Kool-Aid per volume of water. Normal sugar-sweetened Kool-Aid is 1.5 tablespoons of Kool-Aid mix per cup of water. These Double Delights work out to 4 tablespoons of Kool-Aid Mix per cup of water. Much sweeter to be sure, but not doubly so. It would be more accurate to call these Two and Two-Thirds Delights. But I guess that’s not as catchy.
Perhaps if you could get some twin pop molds so you could break them in half after freezing, then you could stick with the Double Delight. Or if you just recommended eating two at a time. Or if you mixed flavors.
I still don’t get it.
I went with Strawberry for this recipe, because why wouldn’t I? It’s a popsicle after all. And strawberry popsicles are great.
I don’t care who you are, these Kool-Aid Double Delights are darned refreshing. Not sure if they need to be as sweet as they are, but they are good. Dare I say delightful?! I dare.
Pick your favorite flavor and go nuts. Or double nuts. You’re an adult, you can do what you want.
Next week we step it up a notch.
