How to Make a Popsicle Wheelbarrow


Summer and fun go hand in hand. Assemble this Fourth of July treat ahead of time. Pass them around while you watch your favorite fireworks display with family and friends. Fill your popsicle wheelbarrows with individual servings of fruit, ambrosia or frozen yogurt topped with crushed chocolate creme cookies.

Step 1

Break pretzel rods in half. Spread vanilla icing along the length of each half rod.

Step 2

Press a half pretzel rod across each frozen twin pop, about 2 inches from the stick end.

Step 3

Spread additional icing on each end of the pretzel rods, and press a vanilla cookie into place to serve as the wheels of the wheelbarrow.

Step 4

Lay the popsicle wheelbarrows in a wheels-up position on a cookie sheet. Place them in the freezer until just before you are ready to serve them.

Step 5

Turn each popsicle wheelbarrow wheels-down on individual serving plates. Top with a mound of fresh fruit or a scoop of yogurt, ambrosia or your favorite ice cream. Sprinkle crushed chocolate creme cookies over each mound. For added whimsy, decorate with one or two gummy worms on top of the mound.
