Cherry Popsicles

I’ve been slightly obsessed with all the popsicle recipes that I’ve seen on Pinterest lately.

I almost bought one of those very cool plastic molds so that I could start trying all the recipes I’ve been drooling over.

For now, I talked myself out of the fourteen dollar purchase and picked up the popsicle sticks at a craft store instead.

I turned this cherry limeade popsicle treat into a decadent dessert by using my dessert shooter glasses to make mini popsicles and dipped them in sparkling wine!

Clever right?

Can I Use Frozen Cherries?

Yes! Enjoy popsicles all year long and use frozen cherries if fresh isn’t available.

Pick a brand that doesn’t add additional sugar otherwise your popsicles may be extra sweet.

In addition, the simmering time will need to be increased an additional 5-10 minutes.

What Can Be Used In Place Of Popsicle Molds?

If you don’t have a silicone popsicle mold don’t let that stop you from trying to make these popsicles.

Look around your kitchen for some ideas. Here are a couple:

  • Small paper cups
  • Juice classes
  • Shooter glasses
  • Small parfait glasses
  • Plastic or silicone ice trays

  1. Oooh, what delicious popsicles!!! I cannot get enough cherries this time of year!
    PS…great choice for an affiliate! Love that they give back.

  2. I love these popsicles and dipping them in wine is almost sinful. I can’t wait!

    Producing a good blog is expensive. Every post costs money and then there’s the hosting, design, technical support, time to promote on social media and much more. I have no problem letting people know when I do a sponsored post.

    1. These are such a excellent treat with the sparkling wine! I’ve really tried to blog bargain style, and have struggled through some tech issue on my own. I eventually figure it out, but with so many tweaks in my “to do” list I need to find someone that is my go-to person! My next project will be a new web design, but I’m not doing that on my own πŸ™‚

  3. This looks like such a fun adult treat ice lollies and bubbly. Michigan Cherries are so delicious this time of the year. I hope they import some to HK so I can make your delightful treat. Just shared! Take Care, BAM

  4. I love making fresh fruit popsicles, this is an amazing post. Will definitely make this again. Pinned/shared.

  5. Those popsicles sound delish on their own, but I LOVE that you combined it with wine! Cherry limeade is soooo good. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Sandra, I know what you mean! I have been itching to make popsicles too! They are everywhere! This is a great idea and they sound so yummy! Thanks for introducing me to this wonderful company! How fantastic they give so much to non-profits! Great pics πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Marion! I have a little list of popsicles flavors that I want to try. I could dedicate a whole blog to popsicle recipes πŸ™‚ It really is unreal that One Hope Wine is so generous. You don’t see that very often.

  7. A good Popsicle in the store is kinda expensive, so thank you for this fun recipe! I love the idea of putting it in your summer drink. Great job on this blog!
