These ice pop molds, made of BPA-free plastic, offer a fun, summery alternative to traditional molds, shaped into a faux swirly soft-serve design with handles that mimic ice cream cones. The twist-on lids make it easy to freeze mixtures in the base, and pop out frozen treats whenever a craving strikes. I skip the recommended ¼” headspace when filling the mold — it looks more authentic and tastes better that way.
