SENSATIONAL SNOW POPS
Items needed:
  • Ice Pop Mold
  • Snow cone syrup of your choice
  • Water
  • Ice Pop sticks (if not included with mold)
Method: (measurements vary according to size of ice pop molds)
  • Step 1: Clean out ice pop mold
  • Step 2: Pour a few tablespoons of water, followed by one tablespoon of snow cone syrup into each mold.

  • NOTE: (Adjust this based on the size of your molds, using a ratio of 3:1) (Too much snow cone syrup will cause the ice pop to become overpoweringly sweet and strong)

  • Step 3: Next, if your ice pop molds have covers with built-in sticks, simply cover the molds after filling them, and place them in the freezer until frozen, (about 4-5 hours)

  • On the contrary, if your molds require sticks to be added, freeze the pops until partially frozen, (about 2 hours), after which youíll gently slide the stick into the center of each pop, so it is sturdy in place. Then put it back in the freezer until completely frozen.

  • Step 4: Remove ice pop molds from freezer and take out each pop.

  • If itís too difficult to loosen the ice pops from the molds, then let them sit at room temperature for a little while before you try again. While you can leave the ice pops in their molds for days, itís best to remove from molds as soon as possible to prevent discoloration and texture changes.

  • Step 5: Serve with a smile and enjoy!

  • With the wonderful array of snow cone syrups available at Hawaiian Shaved Ice, the ice pop possibilities are virtually endless!
