Kool-Aid Balls Recipe: The New Strawberry Lemonade Bomb

My recipe below is Strawberry Lemonade Kool-Aid Balls, and they are awesome for kids and adults!

If you thought warm weather meant that you could retire your hot chocolate bomb molds, think again. I have something new for you that you will want to be doing all summer long! No, it isn’t ice. It’s even kooler. Oh, yeah! You can use your sphere-shaped silicone molds to make a whole new kind of drink bomb. It’s the perfect way to refresh in the heat of a summer day. Yes, it’s possible. Yes, it’s amazing. Yes, they are Strawberry Lemonade Kool-Aid Balls!

A Kool-Aid Recipe that Breaks the Mold (Figuratively)

If you still don’t have round molds, I have a link below where you can find them. I have been using mine for months and they are well worth the investment. Especially when you consider that they aren’t only seasonal as you will see in this fantastic Kool-Aid bombs recipe.

It’s a Shell Game

This recipe is a lot of fun to make and it will broaden your horizons in the kitchen. Instead of making your shells out of chocolate as you do for hot chocolate bombs, you make Kool-Aid balls with a hard candy shell. If you have never made candy before, this is a fun recipe to experiment with. You will need a candy thermometer to make sure your shell components reach the right temperature.

Carefully spread your melted candy in the mold as it will be sticky and hot. The inside of the ball can be made out of any other crystalized beverage mix as well. Working with sugar candy is a little bit different than working with chocolate, so give yourself some room for trial and error if this is your first time! Once you try it, you will want to do it all summer long!

Kook-Aid Flavours

If you don’t like the Strawberry Lemonade flavour you can definitely substitute for any other of your favourite Kool-Aid packet such as:

Heat a pan on the stove. Remove the Kool-Aid sphere from the mold and gently melt 3 spheres on a warm pan. Place 1/3 of the Kool-Aid strawberry lemonade package in each of the 3 spheres. Warm the other 3 sides of the sphere (the unfilled one) and the place on top creating a ball. Hold until both spheres stick together.

How To Make the Strawberry Lemonade Drink

When you are ready to make the Kool-Aid, place all the balls in 6 cups of warm water to dissolve faster, stir and then chill in the refrigerator, or add to 6 cups of cold water and wait for it to dissolve by stirring.

  1. I was wondering if these will dissolve in cold water even if it takes a bit longer. I’m wanting to make these for a bridal shower. Thank you for pushing this.

    • They will, but not sure how long it will take to fully dissolve. Maybe make some and try it out before to see. When I want an iced tea fast, I put like 1-2 inches of hot water in a glass, let it brew for 3 minutes and add ice cubes to fill up the glass. The ices cubes will melt and make the tea cold. I wonder if this would work with the sugar ball?

    Lovely. How do you store these, and how long will they last?? I have made tea bombs and they were a sticky mess due to the humidity. Please advise. Thank you!

    • If you made tea bombs before that are similar to these, it will be the same. Don’t put them in the refrigerator due to the humidity, and keep on the counter in a container (dry and cool place). Not sure how long to keep them for as they didn’t last long at our house! It’s sugar, so I don’t see why you can’t keep them for 1-2 weeks minimum.
