Easter is just around the corner, and we’re cooking up all sorts of goodness at Brit HQ. First up, Easter Egg Pops.
– plastic easter eggs
– an empty egg carton
– 1 pushpin
– 2 wooden kebab skewers (or anything with a pointy end that is food-friendly)
– straws, lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks
– popsicle filling (we used Gatorade and Vitamin Water)
– metal piping tip or super small funnel
Take the bottom half of your egg and place it so the flat edge is on your work surface. Use a push pin to poke a hole in the center, and two on the side. The two side-holes are to provide air circulation when you’re pouring in your Vitamin Water or Gatorade.
Back to the center hole. To make the hole large enough to pour through, use a wooden kebab skewer and twisting motion to enlarge the hole.
Then, push the tip of a piping tip or small funnel through the hole.
Pour any kind of drink in through the hole. We recommend pouring over the sink, but you can also place in an egg cup. Once your egg is a little less than full, place in an egg carton, hole-side up. Place a straw or popsicle stick in the hole.
Repeat and place all eggs in the freezer overnight.
Take out of the freezer. The juice will have caused your eggs to expand a little, making it easy to pop the top of the egg off.
Your frozen Easter Egg popsicle should look like this.
Hold it in your hand for a few seconds to melt it ever so slightly before pulling off the top.
And there you have it!
If you don’t have straws or popsicle sticks on hand, you can skip that step and serve in egg cups or as hand-held popsicles.
This one was made with an orange egg and Gatorade Blue Raspberry.
We’ve definitely got our hands full with this trio of pops.
All in all, these Easter Egg Pops were a big hit at Brit HQ. Happy Easter!
