One of the best gifts I ever received was a 12 bottle sampler of root beer from my friend, Michele. I’ll never forget it – they were all completely different, in packaging and flavor. I enjoyed every last drop.
Root Beer Float Pops
Prep time: 10 minutes
Freeze time: 6 hours
• 1 1/2 cups cold, flat root beer
• 2 cups vanilla ice cream
Place chunks of ice cream in each popsicle mold, working quickly before it melts. Slowly pour the root beer into a corner of each mold, filling to the top.
Freeze for 1 hour, place sticks in the molds, and continue to freeze for at least 5 hours.
To remove pops, run hot water over the outsides of the molds for a few seconds, then gently pull the sticks.
Notes: (1) you need flat root beer for this or the carbonation will bubble up when pouring. Open a bottle and place it in the refrigerator a day before using. (2) this popsicle recipe was created using a standard bar-shaped mold, each holding about 1/3 cup. If you are using a different mold, you might need to adjust the ingredients.
