Kool-Aid Balls Recipe: The New Strawberry Lemonade Bomb Summer Beverage

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

Strawberry Lemonade Kool-Aid Balls

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:
