Push-pop molds! This is definitely one of those things that I didn't know I needed it until I saw it.
But now I'm obsessed with the idea of making my own ice cream push pops and taking them to the very next picnic, potluck, or backyard party that pops up on my calendar.
How can I not?These are the very same push pop molds that Jeni Britton Bauer uses at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. I know because she says so right in the source list at the back of her new ice cream cookbook.
The source is JB Prince, an online retailer for all things needed to stock a professional kitchen. They sell both the 4-ounce push pops that Jeni uses as well as mini ones that whole just over a half ounce (though these are sadly on back order right now).
The larger ones also come with a little lid, which is handy for transportation purposes or if you'd like to fill the push pops with something other than ice cream. Say...a stack of macarons, mini cupcakes, or a few marshmallows.
