The weather finally started warming up for this midwest mom blogger. Would you believe the temperature  broke 90 degrees here for the first time this summer just a few days ago? I definitely need to savor this warm weather!
I’ve had some fun searching for the most fabulous popsicle recipes around, and I also want to give you some tips on the best popsicle molds to make your own ice pops as perfect as possible!

best popsicle moldsThe most foolproof method to making popsicles is definitely using the Zoku Quick-Pop maker. The Zoku duo makes two ice pops, and the original Zoku makes 3 in as little as seven minutes! You can even buy a Zoku that makes a single popsicle! Starting at $25, these are your solution if you want fast and easy popsicles and you’re willing to pay a premium.

If you’re looking for the basics, then definitely go for the Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop maker. It’s under $10 right now and eligible for free shipping. With nearly 500 customer reviews averaging 4.5 out of 5 stars, you’ll almost certainly be happy with your purchase!

If you’re making traditional popsicles (think a cup covered with plastic wrap with a stick poked through it), be sure you check the packaging on your wooden popsicle sticks to make sure they’re food safe. Many  people suggest this bargain pack of 1000 wooden popsicle sticks, but it clearly states that it’s non food safe. Do yourself a favor and pick up the popsicle sticks intended for use with food, not just crafts.

I haven’t tried these, but I also love the look of the  silicone ice pop maker sets to make a push-up style popsicle that stays in the mold!
