Day Fifty-One: Turtle Candy & Popsicles

The Bible study gals lucked out again (although there were plenty of yummy treats there) when I realized that "making" popsicles wasn't much of a project! So Jack and I made these faux turtles...easy! The process is very similar to the kiss inside the round pretzel with the M&M on top you see at Christmas, so actually really super easy!

First you talk a gullible kid into unwrapping a bag of Rolos and placing them on a tray of waffle pretzels. Then you put the tray in a 200 degree oven for about 10 minutes.


Take them out and smush them down with a pecan (we used extra yummy candied pecans because that's how we roll). Let them cool and get ready to gain a lot of weight because they are truly addicting!


Then we made the popsicles by pouring lemonade into the molds I bought in the dollar bins at Target. Again, super easy...


Until we attempted to un-mold them a couple days later and just pulled sticks out of an entire tray. Matt was finally able to pry two out for the kids to enjoy. Guess you get what you pay for! I love EJ's face in this one!

Oh, those turtles were extra yummy! Maybe I should make them for this weekend's roadtrip, now that I know I won't have to share them with 65 mooching 7th & 8th graders! (More for the mommies!!)

Love the popsicle photo! EJ's face is so cute!! And Jack is the essence of cooooool. ;-)
