Fourth of July Magic Shell Jeweled Popsicles

By craft contributor Rachael


Have you started planning your 4th July party yet? One really popular item is popsicles of course! This year I thought I’d make our ice treats in red, white and blue with the help of some homemade, colored magic shell. It’s easy to make and color, and combined with some glittery candies it makes one sweet 4th July party pop.

Keep reading for the full tutorial…



1. Popsicles (make some yourself or buy them in packs for savings)
2. Red and blue food coloring
3. White chocolate melts (1.5 cups)
4. Coconut oil (1/2 cup in solid form)

5. Three containers for storing your magic shell
6. Small saucepan
7. Spoon for stirring


Step 1: Melt your white chocolate melts and your coconut oil in a small saucepan over a low heat. Stir gently the whole time. Once you have a smooth consistency, transfer your melted chocolate into three separate containers.


Step 2: Drop a couple of drops of red food coloring into one container and stir. The more drops, the redder it will be.

Repeat for your blue.

Set aside in the fridge and repeat for your other pops.


This is a great way to get the kids involved after lunch. They’ll love watching the magic of this sweet chocolate shell!
