Ahhh Memorial Day. The perfect time to crack a few cold ones, fire up the grill and relax with family or friends. Many of us in the college crowd do one of two things: Attend the annual family and friends BBQ, or join in on the memorial day BBQ rager with our friends. No matter which path you choose, your friends are bound to love this recipe for a homemade popsicle from The Food Network, plus it might just remind you of a classic childhood favorite!
You Will Need (Yield 6 Popsicles):
- 3 cups of vanilla yogurt
- Red and blue bottles of food coloring (They are usually sold in packs)
- Wax Paper
- 6 sugar ice cream cones (read the entire recipe to make sure you have the right type, sold in the ice cream aisle)
- 6 wooden popsicle sticks (sold in ice cream aisle or art supply stores)
- Tint 1/2 cup of yogurt with red food coloring (DDF Tip- A little bit of food coloring goes a long way)
- Tint 1 1/2 cups with blue food coloring
- Now that the yogurt is all set, we need to prepare our cones. Make the waxed paper into a liner for the cone by folding six 12 inch square sheets into triangles, wrap them around the sugar cone and take some scotch tape to hold the shape. Now take the wax paper mold and insert it into the sugar cone!
- Placing the sugar cones with wax paper into the cardboard cut outs they came in (If yours did not come like this then get creative), fill each cone with 1 tablespoon of red yogurt, then 2 table spoons of white yogurt, and topped off with 3 table spoons of blue yogurt. (If that confuses you, just eyeball it to the above picture. (DDF Tip- If you have the materials and creativity, there may be easier ways to get the yogurt into a proper mold, send in your method!)
- Insert a popsicle stick into the center and freeze them upright in the cardboard cut out box. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. (DDF Tip- Just let ‘em sit over night)
