Tools for Frozen Treats: Popsicle Molds
Desserts are certainly the highlight of a meal for me and sometimes I’m in the mood for something nice and simple, especially now that it’s starting to get warm outside. I grew up enjoying popsicles on a daily basis and this non-guilty pleasure of mine won’t be something I’ll be abandoning any time soon. Some of the best popsicles I’ve ever had have been made right in my own kitchen. One of the biggest factors in creating a perfect popsicle is the perfect popsicle mold.
