I have to tell you, I was SO EXCITED to try out this idea I had that I could hardly wait for all of my supplies to show up!  I thought it would be super cool if I could use my stamps and some (important) non-toxic ink to stamp Joy’s Life sentiments on popsicle sticks.  So, I went to Amazon and bought the Norpro Ice Pop Maker and some extra popsicle sticks.

Create these fun pop sticks with Joy’s Life stamps.

Yep, Jello is the yummy secret to these pops. That’s just a scratch on the bowl, not a crack.  LOL!

I’ve always made my kiddos popsicles using OJ and other juices.  Where have I been?  I found popsicle recipes calling for Jello and Kool Aid.  Sounded yummy but all I had on hand was sugar free Jello, so I used that.  It turned out GREAT!

If a little is good, a lot is better, right? No. Try NOT to overfill.

Equipment

  • Popsicle Mold/Maker

Ingredients
  

  • 1 small box Jello any flavor
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water

Instructions
 

  • Put the Jello and sugar in a bowl.
    Add boiling water and stir to dissolve.
    Add the cold water and stir.
    Pour into popsicle mold/maker (or Dixie cup with toothpick holder).
    MY TIP: If you buy the popsicle maker that I used, freeze for 2 hours before adding the sticks. Add sticks and freeze for at least 2 more hours for the best outcome.

Notes

I used sugar free Jello because it’s what I had.

This is one of my favorite projects EVER.

Using non-toxic ink, I stamped all of my popsicle sticks.  For my first try, I stamped them all 24 hours in advance.  By batch 3, I stamped them 10 minutes before I stuck them in the popsicle mold.  LOL!  Both ways turned out well!  I was super impressed.

Wax paper rules my Popsicle World.

I wasn’t sure what to do with my plethora of popsicles, so I decided to separate them with wax paper and sort of stand them in a freezer safe bowl.  Even after several days, they were still fine.  YAY!

I used strawberry, orange and lime Jello. Orange was my favorite.

What a cool idea…you could theme them for different occasions with your stamps! I’ve made kool aid popsicles, but never heard of jello ones. You know you can make them with pudding too…chocolate popsicles!


I hope you enjoyed this BITE of summer fun!  Check out these cool blogs for even more fun!

    1. Hi Mary Hicken,
      I looked on Food.com for a popsicle recipe and that’s how I found the idea for using Jello. 😉 They all called for using Jello with KoolAid though, so I just left that out and sort of did my own thing. I have to say, I felt pretty silly looking for a popsicle recipe but after I tried it, I was glad I did!

  14. Super cool, super Joy! I love the idea of the stamped popsticks! Totally awesome (takes me back…) Thanks for the chance!

  15. Awesome idea. I need to get back to making my own popsicles. I was thinking about the pudding pops~ chocolate yum!!! God bless,

  16. I absolutely love this idea!! Question – does the ink come off on the popsicle-eater’s fingers??? If not, I’m TOTALLY making these for an upcoming party!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. Hi Kristi,
      The ink I used did not come off. I think it sinks into the stick too much to have any residual ink hanging around on the surface. That’s just my best guess. 😉 So, I’m happy to report that all of our hands were ink free. 😉 I used Stampin’ Up non toxic ink. I also tried Tim Holtz Distress Inkwhich worked great too but I didn’t feel good about using that on a food item. 😉
      Happy popsicle decorating!
      ~Joy~

  17. Wow Joy, these just look so yummy! What a great idea to stamp the popsicle sticks. Thanks for the great idea!
