Homemade Popsicles: 5 Different Frozen Summer Treats
Popsicle Molds Buyers’ Guide
There is no exact answer to this question, as the amount of time it takes to freeze popsicles depends on a few things. The time varies depending on the effectiveness and coldness of your freezer, the base of your popsicle, and the type of mold you use. Depending mostly on how thick you make your popsicles, it will take somewhere between 4 and 8 hours to freeze. 4 hours is the minimum so plan ahead before making your popsicles. To get the fastest results, turn up your freezer to the coldest, you can go ahead and put your molds at the back of your freezer, where it gets the coldest. Keep in mind that the faster your popsicles freeze, the softer they are going to turn out!
There are a few methods to unmolding popsicles without breaking them. One method is to fill a pot or pan that is at least the height of your mold with warm water and dip the molds in briefly until they loosen. This should take around 25 seconds. Remove the mold from the water and place it on a flat surface and pull the handle to get the popsicles out of the mold. If you have to struggle to get the popsicles out, then leave them in the water longer. Another method is to let the popsicles sit at room temperature until they loosen enough to be removed. This method works but they won’t be as clean-cut as the popsicles from the first method, and the whole process can be messy.
