"Ice candy bags" was my reply.
I felt her eyebrows raised while I typed those words. But surely she sent me some when Celia got back here. (thanks ladies!)
With the current heat wave engulfing the United States, I thought that the ice candy bags will be put to good use.
Ice candy is a frozen homemade popsicle. It's usually mixed with fresh fruits and milk. You could actually concoct your own flavors with whatever fruits you have at home.
You pour it in a narrow plastic bag using a funnel or a tea pot. The narrow spout of a teapot is best. Then freeze it.
I remember growing up making them but guess what, among the 6 siblings that I have the ice candy never saw itself frozen the way it should be. We can't wait for 24 hours for it to harden. I was reminded today as my daughter declared that the ice candy that I made is all gone.
The ingredients are simple. As I said you could have different flavors. I used mango, corn and pineapple.
Then I mixed it with a milk mixture consist of condensed milk, water to dilute the condensed milk and french vanilla coffee mate.
Carefully tie a knot to secure the bag. Freeze until it hardens.
For sure your kids, no matter how big they are will enjoy the icy treat.
So ice candy anyone?
