"My grandmother passed down this ice cream recipe years ago," recalls Jo Snyder of South Bend, Indiana. "Our kids loved it when I made it into Popsicles. Now our grandchildren enjoy the frozen treats when they visit...the older ones can assemble them on their own."
You won't break a sweat fixing these easy chillers! The frozen snack, made from fruity gelatin and powdered soft drink mix, can be whipped up in no time, according to Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon.
"Youngsters just love them. I know ours did when they were little," she adds. "And though the kids are grown, they still request the treats when they visit."
