Fathers Day TREAT!
I thought it would be fun to serve some frozen on a stick to celebrate Dad and his favorite drink. Let’s enjoy a traditional Coke Float Popsicle by way of ice cold Coke, vanilla ice cream….and don’t forget the cherry on top!
The key to using carbonated soda in a popsicle, is to use flat soda. Just open the soda, pour it into a glass and let it sit an hour or more in the refrigerator, so it stays cold, but loses some of the fizz.
Traditional Coke Float Popsicles
1. Fill popsicle mold a quarter of the way up with flat Coke. Place 1-2 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream into form, drop one maraschino cherry into the mold and pour a little more coke on top. Leave about 1/4″ on top for the popsicle to expand when it freezes.
2. Freeze for about 1-2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and continue freezing popsicles for at least 5 hours, or overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
