Frozen Dum Dums

Try freezing a lollipop in an ice cube to make a fun treat for the kids or to use as an interesting addition to a cocktail…

Dum Dum lollipops frozen in ice; sweet and cold on a stick, the kids loved it.

Fill ice cube trays with water, drop lollipops in, clip with a clothespin to hold upright, freeze overnight.

This is what they look like when they're frozen – the lollipops dissolve.

Remove clothespins, twist tray to release and pull ice cubes out by their sticks. The end result – a cool ombré effect.
