How to make root beer popsicles:
If you are using a mold that doesn’t include the stick, then you will need to use popsicle sticks. My problem with these is the sticks tend to float as it freezes.
To solve this problem, just let the sticks soak in boiling water for about 15 minutes before you use them. Problem solved!
There is no mixing required – you just alternate between the icecream and the root beer in your molds! It is that simple!
Doesn’t this just look delicious?
There is something so refreshing about root beer float popsicles on a hot summer day. The vanilla ice cream and root beer make such a delicious treat.

A small box of specialty popsicles can be pricey at the grocery store. You will save so much money making these at home.

I try to get the ice cream when it is on sale and this treat gets even more frugal.
