pop! goes my summer: root beer float popsicles

It’s getting fun now.

When I came up with the idea for this series I made a list of all of my favorite flavor combinations, drinks and snacks – hoping to make each one in “pop” form.

And who doesn’t love a root beer float?

This one is barely even a recipe – you know the deal – root beer and vanilla ice cream.

Just don’t forget the maraschino cherry….

Root Beer Float Popsicles
inspired by Pass the Sushi

1 bottle of root beer
1 container of vanilla ice cream
maraschino cherries, drained and stemmed

Place your popsicle molds and the root beer in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Using a thin spoon, gently push a cherry into the bottom of each mold. Pour root beer into each mold one third of the way. Place a scoop of ice cream into each mold, pushing down with your spoon to mix with the root beer. Pour enough root beer to fill each mold – scoop off any foam.

Freeze for 30-45 minutes; add sticks and freeze overnight.

To release the pops, hold molds briefly under hot water.
