Cupcake baking cups as popsicle drip-catcher

Kimberly, I bet those Popsicles look like they're wearing tutus.

My daughter loves Popsicles, especially during the hot months of summer. The thing is, I don't like the mess they create. I've done everything I could think of to keep the mess to a minimum. Wrapping the stick with a napkin, breaking the Popsicle off of the stick and mashing it up in a bowl, etc. What works for us? A cupcake paper liner! Just cut a small hole in the bottom of the paper and insert the Popsicle stick. Voila!

    We use fountain soda cup lids, the plastic disposable ones that you get from convenience stores. I cut a small slit in the lid for the stick and position it lip side up. Best of all, they’re reusable and can go in the dishwasher.
