    Chef Amy Riolo demonstrates how to make a delicious frozen treat kids of all ages will love – a bomb pop baseball player.

    Amy Riolo: Hi! I'm Amy Riolo with culinary.

    net. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a tasty frozen treat, Bomb Pops Baseball Players. Nothing says summer more than baseball, America's favorite pass time.

    During these warm months, find the kids something fun to do to fill their days of leisure. This recipe is quick and easy with a prep time of only ten minutes. Start by patting dry four medium sized strawberries that have had their stems removed, and cut a thin slice of one long side of each. Hollow out the center to fit on the end of a bomb pop.

    Next, place a dab of white frosting where the strawberry begins to taper to a point and attach a sugar letter. This will be your baseball player's helmet. Then, we can add some eyeballs. I'm using store bought candy eyeballs, but if you choose to make the eyeballs from scratch, you can place two dabs of white frosting for the eyes and press some mini candy coated chocolate piece for each one of the eyeballs. Attach half of a graham cracker stick with frosting for the arms.

    For another decorative touch, use the frosting to attach a sugar player's jersey number to the front of each of the bomb pops.

    Lastly, place the strawberry baseball helmets on top of the each of the bomb pops and serve immediately. You'll score a home run when you invite the kids into the kitchen to create these delicious summer time treats.
