Enjoy a fresh strawberry pie on a stick. Strawberry Pie Pops are a fun desserts perfect for July 4th or any celebration.
Pin Strawberry Pie Pops here.
I knew these strawberry pie pops would be adorable. In addition I hoped they would be delicious, and I prayed the little pies would stay on their lollipop sticks. Oh joy, oh joy. They were adorably, delicious and perfectly adhered to their sticks. I enlisted my little one to help me make the first batch of Strawberry Pie Pops and decorate them. Anytime there are sprinkles involved, she is in. She is the “sprinkle expert” in our family. Luckily she pours a little on then decides if it needs more or not. Surprisingly she doesn’t try to pour the entire bottle on, she is quite judicious about it.
Now eating them, she would happily have eaten them all, if I had let her. I have to admit, it is really easy to nibble on a few. I ate my strawberry pie pops in four bites. My husband ate his in one. Yup, he ate the whole thing at once. I think I had to pick my jaw off the floor. I don’t know why I did not expect that, but I didn’t. “Big mouth” might have escaped my lips.
For my little one’s end of school party, I was enlisted to make a bunch of these for all the kids. Luckily my Mom came over and using an assembly line we made about 40 of them in no time. My little one was so proud of them and kept telling the kids she made them before. My husband confiscated the leftovers and took them to work. I hate to think how many were gobbled down by him. I do appreciate all my taste testers though.
We are looking forward to making some fun recipes this summer. When I get my little one involved in the planning and helping, I can get a little more work done. She has decided on a flavor of popsicle which she believes she has made up. I love the flavor combination and can’t wait to try it. Hopefully we will be able to unveil her popsicle masterpiece in August. She also wants to make cookies. I might as well get a jump on taste testing Christmas cookies. Cookies are hard to lighten. It will take lots of tries before we get it right. I hope she continues to like to cook. When you make it yourself, you eat so much healthier.
Do your kids like to cook? Do you encourage them? Or is the kitchen your private domain?
