Cherry Coke Popsicles

CHERRY. COKE. POPSICLES. I really don’t feel like I need to say any more than that but let me just tell you how amazing these were.

You know 7/11 and the coke slushes you ALWAYS put a splash of cherry in?! Well these tasty treats are that in a nutshell but even better!

The fact that they are so simple is so worth it! Have everyone go crazy with these at ANY function. You will be loved forever.


Ingredients:

  • 16-20 oz Cola
  • 1 Jar maraschino cherries – will need 12-24 cherries

Directions:

  1. Separate maraschino cherries from the maraschino cherry juice. Keep the juice and cherries.
  2. Cut 18-24 cherries in-half then place 3-6 cherry halves in the Popsicle freezer molds.
  3. Pour maraschino cherry juice over the cherries in each mold to fill ⅓ up each mold.
  4. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  5. When the cherry juice is frozen, move on to the next step.
  6. Pour cola over the cherries and juice in each mold – leaving ¼” head-space in each mold.
  7. Cover and place Popsicle sticks down into each Popsicle – push firmly and into the frozen cherry portion.
  8. Freeze overnight.
  9. When ready to serve, gently remove the Popsicles. If needed, dip the molds (do not immerse) in lukewarm water but just for a few seconds and only long enough to loosen the Popsicles.
  10. Enjoy!
