With warmer weather on the way, here’s the secret mold you need for perfect popsicles.
It’s not that I don’t like ice pos. It’s that I hate the ninety percent chance the popsicle will stick, break in half, or the handle slides out while I try to remove them from a mold. I’ve used enough terrible popsicle molds in my days (especially when a client has one for a specific themed project we are working on it seems) to know a good one when I see it.
Back in March I was at the International Housewares Association trade show (now the Inspired Home Show) since I’m a food and wellness contributor to the website. As I walked the floors to seek out new product, I found the magic ice pop mold.
These Silikomart molds are made from silicone. This means they can be used in the oven, fridge, freezer and even blast chiller (the website says -60 ° C to +230 ° C). The ice pop molds also lie flat, leaving one side exposed, instead of being in an upright rack like other molds. Their bendy nature in addition to the flat mold makes it SO EASY to remove shapes. I had zero sticking, zero breaking when I made these.
And last but not least, because this is the kind of thing that matters to me these days…they’re dishwasher safe
The recipe we made for this feature is based on a Chris childhood favorite: peanut butter and waffles. They’re made with a yogurt base, sweetened with maple syrup and topped with a crispy baked oat crumble.
