Polka dots rock these sweet pops made super fast in a Zoku Quick Pop Maker!
I was at a wedding once where nearly all the dancing was to polka music. Oh, you're not from Wisconsin? Hmmm. This story may not be so relevant then.
If you won't do the polka dance, no worries. You can still do the polka dot. I'll show you how. I've been making Zoku pops for awhile now -- I'm kind of a Zoku guru, you could say -- so stick with me and nobody will get hurt (polka dancing).
You need just a couple things: Sprite and Gushers Fruit Snacks...and A Zoku Quick Pop Maker.
I used a few different flavors of Gushers to get a bunch of varied colors, but you go ahead and use whatever ones you feel like.
If you've read any of my Zoku articles before (like this one
or this one
), you know that you have to freeze the pop maker for 24 hours before you use it.
No biggie, really, considering that then your pops will freeze before your li'l eyeballs in just minutes. It's like food entertainment, it is.
Pull the machine outta the freezer and put a couple Gushers in each slot. Then insert the handles so you can still fit them in. Add a bunch more Gushers, moving them around to get them just about everywhere. You might have to squish 'em a bit to get them in front and back of the sticks.
Pour the Sprite into the molds, up to the fill lines. UP TO the fill lines. So now you know I don't follow directions.
Freeze, freeze, chill, chill. NO, not in the freezer, silly! Right on the counter! Wait it out about 10 minutes.
When they're totally frozen, grab the handy dandy pop release tool and twist it right onto one of the handles. Then wiggle and jiggle it 'til it loosens up -- not unlike polka dancers, I might add. Pop!
Out they come. Yep, it's really that easy.
And there they are. See how I put fewer Gushers in this one -- just up and down the sides? Much easier, but still so cute! Hand 'em out right away because they're best like that.
And now you can say that you know the polka -- sorta.Like the Zoku Quick Pop Maker? Find it here.
