"Summer Social" Guest Project — Make Handmade Berrylicious Popsicles!!

16 Aug
Hey TT&J readers!!! I’m Cheryl,
aka TidyMom! When I am not baking, crafting or running around with my camera
you can find me over in my little corner of the universe at
Like all of you I’m a HUGE fan of
Jen’s and SO impressed with how much that girl can do!! I’ve had the pleasure
of meeting Jen a few times, and let me tell you, she’s every bit as sweet, if
not more, in person as she is on her blog.
I share a lot of stuff on my blog,
everything from my favorite
recipes to my favorite household tips.
I like to share
photography tips and blogging tips, crafting , being thrifty
makeovers and a little bit of everything in between. I host a weekly
link up party on Fridays where you can share your great ideas, project or
anything you are loving, called
I’m Lovin’ It.

I thought since Jen was having a
summer soiree, and I loooove to bring food to a party…….what’s a summer
time party with out popsicles?!
These berrylicous popsicles are so
easy, even the kids can join in on the fun!

  • 2 cups boiling water, divided
  • 2 cups cold water, divided

    Popsicle sticks
  1. In a small bowl, dissolve berry blue gelatin powder and
    1/2 cup sugar in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 1 cup cold water.

    remaining (1/2 cup) sugar in remaining (1 cup)boiling water. Stir in

    mixture and half of the strawberry gelatin mixture. (so you now have 3
