    Default Kool-Aid stuff

    Fruit dip:
    Kool-Aid Yogurt Dip

    2 tablespoons Kool-Aid sugar-sweetened soft drink mix, any flavor
    1 cup vanilla yogurt

    Stir soft drink mix into yogurt in small bowl. Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve. Stir.

    Kool-Aid Playdough

    2-1/2 cups flour

    1/2 cup salt

    2 packs unsweetened Kool-aid

    2 cups boiling water

    3 tbsp. vegetable oil



    Mix dry ingredients. Add water and oil, stir. Mix or knead with hands when cool. Store in Ziploc bag or container with lid. Lasts for several months.

    kool-aid popcorn

    Colorful popcorn

    2 cups sugar
    1 cup light corn syrup
    2/3 cup butter
    2 packets Kool Aid (any flavor)
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    6 quarts plain popcorn (about 4 large bags worth)

    Preheat the oven to 225 degrees. Pop all four bags of plain popcorn, and place in a really large heat resistant bowl. In a small bowl, combine 2 packets Kool-Aid and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Set aside. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil. Let boil for three minutes stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Pour in Kool-Aid and baking soda mixture to saucepan and stir in carefully. It will expand a bit from the baking soda so be careful not to get burned. Once it is mixed in well, pour immediately over the popped popcorn in your large container. Stir well until evenly coated. Place popcorn in oven for 10 minutes on bottom rack. Remove and stir well again. Repeat the 10 minutes in oven and stirring 2 more times for a total of 30 minutes and remove from pot to cool on parchment paper.

    Default kool aid pickles?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/09/di...prod=permalink

    "Those pickles were once mere dills. They were once green. Their exteriors remain pebbly, a reminder that long ago they began their lives on a farm, on the ground, as cucumbers. But they now have an arresting color that combines green and garnet, and a bracing sour-sweet taste that they owe to a long marinade in cherry or tropical fruit or strawberry Kool-Aid"

    I have kool aid and kool aid containers on the brain. I thought we could share things to do with them.

    For example:

    Kool aid sherbet
    1 cup sugar
    1 envelope unsweetened Kool-aid
    3 cups milk

    In a bowl, stir sugar, Kool-aid mix and milk until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a shallow freezer container; cover and freeze for 1 hour or until slightly thickened and mushy. Transfer into a mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Return to freezer container; cover and freeze until firm (about an hour).

    Now you got me thinking about kool-aid. How about dying Gabes hair as he sleeps tonight?
    I don't have anything to add but that sherbet sounds a whole lot better than the pickles.
    Found a neat site with different ideas for kool-aid. http://www.faqs.org/faqs/food/kool-aid-faq/

    Hope to hear what FVr's do with it.

    I've heard that a packet of lemonaid Kool-Aid works well to clean a dishwasher. Just empty it into the soap dispenser and run as usual.

    My mom mixed grape and lime Kool-Aid together for Halloween punch and called it "Stump Water."

    Last week I wanted to make pink icing but didn't have any food coloring. So I sprinkled a little strawberry koolaid crystals in the icing and it not only turned out perfectly pink but it add a great flavor to it too!
