Will this work in a microwave? Also, do you happen to have a recipe for dehydrated water? Lugging huge amounts of water around is physically exhausting. A powder version would be lighter :)
I was all out of water, so I filled my tray with melted chocolate, and put a strawberry in each cube. Then I followed the remaining steps. It might have more calories my way.
This is a great recipe. We have a large family, so I quadrupled the recipe, and also added an extra 1/4 cup of water, and it came out great. These cubes also keep great in the freezer. I blanch them for 2-3 minutes in boiling water, then put them back in their trays to use later. When you're ready to use them, just pop them out of the tray and they taste like you just made them!
My friend Jenn and I will definitely try this on our next Girl's Night with her 5 and 9 year old daughters! It's easy enough for the girls to make, and I'm sure Jenn and I will enjoy the results with our Gin and Tonics. Can't wait to give these a go!
Thanks for the recipe ChrissyG, I made this to bring to a potluck based on how many people gave this a 5 star rating. I don't know what happened, but by the time I got to work with these everything was a big soggy mess, the perfect cube shape was all tormented and runny. Kind of like pudding that just didn't set, needless to say I personally could not rate your ice as a 5 star based on my experience. I may try to make these again in the future, but for a big potluck event I have to stick with my old standby's that never seem to fail.
I wanted to make this recipe on my honeymoon in Mexico and we both landed in the hospital for Montezuma'a revenge
I followed this recipe as it reads, but I had a few problems. First, it needed 3 additional tablespoons to fill my tray. Second, I tried this recipe at my mother-in-laws house, and despite checking every drawer and cabinet, I couldn't find the freezer tool. I was so disappointed that I couldnt finish the recipe since I did all the prep work- don't you hate trying to cook in a strange kitchen? Finally, a bit of advice- the first time I made this, they came out perfectly. I placed them on the table and went to get everyone seated, but in the 15 minutes it took to get everyone to the table, the ice cubes had turned into cold water. I was so frustrated- I mean, when I bake a chicken and let it sit for 15 minutes, I don't come back and find it has turned to broth. So, serve this right away!
This receipe takes way to long to make. I need a much quicker way to make ice for my Cosmo - I can't wait around all night for a receipe with so many steps. And the freezing time is just over the top. I could be getting drunk right now but instead I am waiting for ice to freeze!
I forwarded this recipe to my son. His pet peeve is finding empty ice trays in the freezer. He will be so pleased to know that you have provided this recipe to those who did not know how to fill them!
