The Blast from the Past
Shaped like a rocket and made with patriotic colors, these throwback ice pops have been an ice-cream truck staple for years. In Jennifer Steinhauer's new book Treat Yourself, the Food52 columnist shows how easily you can make them at home, using disposable drinking cups (set in a lined baking sheet) and wooden craft sticks. No special ingredients required, either: Just cherry-juice cocktail, limeade, blue food coloring and white grape juice.
