Calling all Star Wars fans! If you are a fan of Star Wars and you love popsicles, then this recipe is for you. These Star Wars popsicles Death Stars are awesome and super easy to make.
We will be using the same mold that I used in the Star Wars Death Star Peanut Butter Cups recipe. So, these are a couple of fun treats that you can make with that mold, which provides better value.
These Star Wars popsicles are super easy to make, if I can make them, you can make them! Little did Darth Vader and the Emperor know that their Giant Death Star would be reduced to candy and popsicles, or be blown up twice. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients
In order to make these Star Wars Popsicles you need just a few ingredients and tools:
- Juice, Kool-Aid, Soda – You need some kind of drink for the popsicle.
- Star Wars Death Star Mold – The main thing you need is the actual mold, which you can buy online.
- Plastic syringe or very small funnel
- Thin popsicles sticks or wooden dowels – They need to be able to fit in the hole of the mold.
Step 2: How to make Death Star Star Wars Popsicles
Open up the Death Star mold and place it in a pan. The pan will catch any overflow liquid, and keep things tidy. There will be two halves to the mold. The bottom half is flat on the bottom and the top half has a hole in it.
But when it is put together, the bottom half is actually the top of the Death Star popsicle.
You can have fun with this and make a variety of flavors, etc. You can also make two flavors in one as well, if you like.
Pour some liquid, Kool-Aid, Fruit Punch, Soda, etc, into the bottom half of the mold. Fill it up most of the way. If you would like to make a dual-color/flavor popsicle, then freeze just the bottom half for a 2 to 3 hours.
Place the other half of the mold on the bottom half. Now you can stick the dowel or popsicle stick in the mold now, or fill it up the rest of the way first and then set it in. It is totally up to you. If you are using a funnel then you would wait to put the dowel in. Honestly, it is probably easier just to wait.
Now use a syringe or small funnel and fill up the mold most of the way. Leave some space at the top, because as it freezes the liquid inside will expand.
NOTE: At this point, you can switch to a different flavor of liquid if you want to do two halves.
Once filled, place the Star Wars Popsicles mold in the freezer and freeze for at least 4 to 6 hours.
Step 3: Finished Star Wars Popsicles
After plenty of freezing time remove the molds from the freezer. You may or may not see some come out the top and the sides of the Death Star mold may or may not split.
If you have some frozen on top of the mold it is very easy to just slide it off with your finger. Then split open the mold with your fingers and slide the Star Wars Popsicles out of the Death Star mold.
Then use a knife to trim the ring around the popsicle if desired. It always looks better if you do that. But there isn’t always a ring, it just depends on how it freezes.
Now enjoy those awesome Death Star Star Wars popsicles.
How long will they last?
These homemade Star Wars popsicles will last 4 to 6 weeks in the freezer.
