FROZEN WATERMELON POP
• 1 firm seedless watermelon (make sure it's not too ripe)
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup water...
• 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
You will need:
Maple leaf shaped cookie cutter + popsicle sticks
Slice watermelon into approx. 1" wedges. Use maple leaf cookie cutter to cut a leaf out of each wedge. Transfer leaf shaped watermelon slices to a 9 x 12 dish or a dish large enough to fit the slices in an even layer.
Prepare syrup: Add sugar and water to a small saucepan, and bring to a boil, whisking constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and
Pour mixture over the watermelon slices, and let soak for about 20 minutes per side (40 minutes total).
Carefully insert a popsicle stick into the bottom of each maple leaf, pushing through the bottom center. Place the popsicles on a foil-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer to freeze for at least 2 hours.
Remove from the freezer and enjoy!
