Summertime Treats

Yogurt Popsicles
1 package (4-serving size) fruit flavored gelatin
1 cup tap water
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
3 cups plain yogurt (homemade is fine)
Molds, Sticks, Freezer
Heat the water until it is boiling. You can do this on the stove or in the microwave. Stir it the flavored gelatin. Stir and Stir and Stir. Add the sugar. Keep stirring until the fluid is clear and everything is dissolved. This may take a full 5 minutes of stirring. Add the yogurt and beat until the mixture is smooth. Pour into molds and freeze.

3 eggs
2 1/4 c. sugar
3 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. cocoa
2 c. water
4 1/2 c. milk, heated
1 tbsp. vanilla

Beat eggs, add rest of ingredients. Mix well. Pour into plastic popsicle cups and freeze.

Here's my tip: If you do not have molds you can pour into an ice cube tray. Cover with aluminum foil and poke toothpicks down each center. The foil will help hold the toothpick straight in the center.
