DIY Mini Bomb Pops

With the Zoku™ Mini Pops Maker, these are quick and easy -- the perfect wow for your 4th of July celebration!

Ingredients

1
blue freezer pop (in a plastic sleeve)
1
red freezer pop (in a plastic sleeve)
1/4
cup water
2
tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1
Zoku™ Mini Pop Mold*

Directions

  • 1 RED LAYER: Open the red plastic freezer pop sleeve and pour the red liquid into a small prep bowl. Add 1-1/2 teaspoons to each Zoku™ mini pop mold. Place mold tray into freezer and freeze the red layer for 90 minutes, or until frozen solid.
  • 2 WHITE LAYER: When red layer is frozen, combine the water and sweetened condensed milk in a small prep bowl to make the white layer. Put 1-1/2 teaspoons of white liquid over the frozen red layer in the molds. Freeze for 90 minutes or until frozen solid.
  • 3 After white layer is frozen solid, remove tray from freezer. Using the tip of a very sharp knife, gently turn the knife tip into the center of each mold to bore a small hole THROUGH THE WHITE LAYER ONLY. (Note: Do not go through the red layer, or you may puncture the soft mold and ruin it!) The hole is to allow the pop handle to be placed flush in the molds after the blue layer is added.
  • 4 BLUE LAYER: Open the blue plastic freezer pop sleeve and pour the blue liquid into a small prep bowl. Add 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons of blue liquid over the frozen white layer, filling up to the fill line on each mold. Immediately place a handle over the top and gently press to secure. Freeze pops 2 hours or overnight.

DIY Mini Bomb Pops

As prepared by tbspSusan,

These Zoku mini pops take a cue from Uncle Sam and pop up dressed in their red, white and blue-striped best!


These li'l pops made in Zoku Mini Pop Molds are like Bomb Pops meet candy-pacifier rings. Your 4th of July guests are gonna do cartwheels right into the lake when they see 'em!

They couldn't be easier either. With the Zoku Mini Pop Molds and some store-bought slurpy stuff, prep is a piece of cake. Just freeze 'em up, one layer at a time, and pop 'em out when your patriots need to chill out.

 

Ingredients for DIY Mini Bomb Pops

Ingredients? Not so much. This is all: 1 red and 1 blue freezer pop (unfrozen), some water and a tad of sweetened condensed milk.

 

Red, white and blue liquid for DIY Mini Bomb Pops.

Cut the red and blue sleeves and empty each into a prep bowl. Combine the water and sweetened condensed milk in another prep bowl.  (Use food coloring to deepen or enhance the colors if you want.)

Now we're gettin' on our red, white and blue. Let's GO!

 

Spoon red liquid into the mini pop molds.

Spoon 1-1/2 teaspoons of the red liquid into each of the round molds. Freeze for 90 minutes.

 

Add white liquid to the mini pop molds.

Remove the Zoku tray from the freezer and add 1-1/2 teaspoons of the white liquid to each of the round molds, right on top of the frozen red layers. Return the tray to the freezer for another 90 minutes.

 

Cut a small hole into each frozen white layer.

Remove the Zoku tray from the freezer. Take a very sharp pointy paring knife and turn it in the center of each pop to bore a small hole down through the white layer only. This is where the pop handle will be inserted.

See that pop handle to the right of the knife? It's a good idea to do a "fit check" to make sure the handle can be inserted flush with the mold tops.

Don't cut deeper than the white layer with your knife, or you risk puncturing the soft, flexible Zoku molds and ruining them!

 

Add blue liquid up to the fill line on the mini pop molds.

Once you have your little holes drilled, add the blue liquid all the way up to the fill line on each pop.

 

Handles inserted into the mini pop molds.

Next, add the handles, pressing down gently to make sure each is in position. Freeze the pops 2 hours or overnight -- hey! There's an idea: get'er done the night before and actually enjoy the 4th!

 

Release the mini pops from the molds.

Releasing these cuties from their nests is a snap! Push up from the bottom with one hand as you gently pull on the handle with your other hand. Seriously -- fwooop -- out they come, soooo easy.

 

Mini Bomb Pop ready to eat!

Adorbs! This was my test one but I couldn't resist giving it a lick. Reminds me so much of summertime as a kid!

Line 'em up and pass 'em out. These are a perf palate cleanser after a BBQ dinner and before the big fireworks show.



 

Hope your 4th really pops!

Tips  

Press each mold from the bottom with one hand while gently pulling on the handle with the other hand. The molds will easily invert and release the pops.

Place mini pops upright in an ice-filled bowl or platter. Can also use glass vase pebbles to stand mini pops upright in a decorative container. Keep frozen until ready to serve.
