Ice Pops for Little Hands (and Appetites)

We’re on a collision course with ice pop season, and I’m still looking for the best popsicle molds. They’re often too fussy, too brittle, take up too much space in the freezer. I’ve had my eye on these silicone squeeze molds for a few reasons.

They hold a relatively small amount of liquid (3 1/2 ounces), which makes for one small sweet treat — good for portion control or for little tummies. They’re also easy to handle and relatively dripless for small hands; I can picture giving my toddler nephew one of these. I think he would handle it just fine.

And the best part is that they don’t need a bulky holder to keep them upright in the freezer; you can tuck little pockets of frozen juice or pudding pops into your freezer wherever there’s a nook to hold it.

Have you tried silicone ice pop molds like these? Do they work well for you?
