Koolickles!! {Recipe Review #2}

Ok, so Alton Brown really isn't a fellow blogger per se, but he does post on his own website so that kinda counts and let's face it, he has some darn tootin' good recipes! And this is one of his simple ones. When the hubs and I saw him make these on his show, we raised our eyebrows, we thought he was crazy and knew we totally had to try it! So we did and these are really good!! Easy, too!

Alton Brown's Koolickles
1 gallon jar of whole pickles
2 packets cherry Kool-Aid
1 pound sugar (~2 cups)









Drain the pickle juice into a bowl

Remove pickles from jar.

Cut pickles in half lengthwise and put pickles back in the jar


My daughter helped with the next part. Add Kool-Aid packs and the sugar to the pickle juice. Instead of sugar, I used 2 cups of Splenda.


Mix well.

Pour cherry pickle juice back into jar.


Secure lid and put in refridgerator for 1 week.

Then enjoy!! 

Really, you will! Don't be afraid of these! Oh! Make and take them to your Labor Day BBQ!! They'll be the talk of the crowd! Serve them in bite size pieces so they're less antimidating!

Hope you're having a great week!





Linking up to these link parties. And also Debbie Doo's Newbie Party!

I'm gonna have to try this (maybe on a smaller scale). There is a guy at work who takes a whole pickle, jabs out a hole down the middle, pours dry Kool Aid down in the hole, eats pickle. Probably a similar taste to your recipe. Thanks for sharing this idea.
