Bling Bling

Mom has been jonesin' to make these sweet little gems (the glam jelly shots recipes - pic of mag page below) she saw in Rachael Ray (she loves to hate her and her incessant abbreviations ... drat, we can't help it either!).  Realizing that jello shots were probably not in anyone's best interest, and given our general refusal to eat fruit and our love of popsicles, mom picked up these great ring-pop popsicle molds.  She is addicted to Tovolo (and, although we did find the rocket pop molds at Marshalls for less than 1/2 the price).  We've made several different batches of popsicles this summer so far using different Tovolo molds (including these).  This time, we made strawberry and mango pops (mom loved using up those pre-pureed mango packs from TJ's that have been sitting in the freezer for a while -- we just added a little bit of sugar).  The smaller size was better for Cami, but I needed to eat three of them to get my popsicle fix.  And while these won't last quite as long in the freezer as the bigger sizes, they were a cinch to get out of the molds and were super fun to put on your finger and eat like a ring-pop.  Fruit?  What fruit?
