Make It Yourself Monday!

For this week's project I found a heathly and easy to put together summer treat to make with the kids by Marie at Make and Takes

Frozen Grape Pops are the perfect treat for a hot summer day. Even though you’ve probably frozen grapes in the freezer before, these pops prevent fingers from getting sticky or wet by adding a lollipop stick to the mix.

Frozen Grape Pops

Supplies for Frozen Grape Pops:

  • Grapes - any color or size, washed
  • Lollipop sticks - preferably 8 inches long, but any size will do. You can buy these at Walmart, or any cake/candy supply place. (We tried these with popsicle sticks and they are too wide for the small grapes.)

First, wash your grapes and dry them as best you can with a paper towel. Then pick about 6 grapes per 8 inch stick. Using the hole side of the grape, push your grape onto the stick. Go down about 1-2 inches from the bottom. Now pile the rest on.

Place your grape sticks in a freezer safe plastic bag. It’s best to wait over night for really good frozen grapes, but we could only wait till the afternoon. Even then, they were cold, mostly frozen, and delicious.
