Popsicle season has finally arrived in Britain! Problem: Britain doesn't do popsicles. ("Ice lollies" are okay I guess, but they don't come in grape. Or Creamsicle. Or Fudgesicle. Or the supersized, jingoistic, all-American Bomb Pop.)
So I intend to make my own popsicles at home. I want them to be so good that anyone who tastes them will never want to bother with a £1 lolly off a truck again.
Recipes abound on the internets, but from experience, Mefites always have good advice to add when it comes to food. I want your best tried-and-true recipes and methods for frozen deliciousness on a stick. Posh chocolate popsicles that will cure my wistful Fudgesicle cravings. Boozy popsicles. Fruity popsicles. Unexpected-flavor-combination popsicles. Suggestions up to and including dry ice (but no liquid nitrogen) welcome. The temperature's a sweltering 79 F -- bring it on!
