Had a craving for a popsicle, but didn't have any in the house. I use to have a homemade popsicle recipe, but couldn't find it. I'm glad that I found this one. Dug out my tupperware popsicle holders that I've had for past 20 years. I used a pkg. Watermelon Cherry Kool-Aid, and a box of Watermelon JELL-O; these popsicles tasted great. Can't wait to experiment with other flavors, like: Berry Blue Kool-Aid with Berry Blue JELL-O, Raspberry Kool-Aid with Raspberry JELL-O, Kiwi-Watermelon Kool-Aid with Watermelon JELL-O, Strawberry Kool-Aid with Strawberry/Banana JELL-O, Mandarin Orange Kool-Aid with either Apricot, Peach or Orange-Pineapple JELL-O etc... Can't wait to make these for my granddaughter; she'll think that her grandma makes the best tasting popsicles in the whole world. Thanks Darlene for the recipe.
I have made these popsicles ever since my kids were small, which is close to 40 years. I got the recipe at a Tupperware party. The last few years I substituted Splenda for the sugar, and I use the sugar free Jello. The consistency is a bit different, but they taste pretty good! I figured this would be good for the calorie cutters and for anyone who is diabetic!

I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
