Koolickles-A Southern Thing

This was a fun and tasty treat! Kinda like a sweet and sour pickle! You should give it a try...Next time I think I may add 3 packets of Kool-aid. 
PS I found this recipe in the web but cannot remember where...Please if you know let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.


1 gallon jar dill pickles
1 lb granulated sugar
2 pkgs unsweetened Kool-Aid

Place a colander over a large bowl and drain all of the pickle brine. Do not discard the brine. Mix the sugar and Kool-Aid into the reserved brine and stir well until completely dissolved. Slice the pickles in half lengthwise Return the pickle halves to the original jar. Add the Kool-Aid/brine mixture to cover the pickles; you WILL have leftover brine. Resist the urge to drink it. Seal the jar and place the pickles in the refrigerator for one week. The pickles will absorb the Kool-Aid brine and take on their new color and flavor. Don't be alarmed if the pickles shrink slightly -this is completely normal.

After one week, the koolickles should be ready. Enjoy!

  1. Oh I want to try these! Any specific flavor of kool-aid or just whatever flavor you prefer?

  2. It called for "red" but I am sure whatever you wanted to use would work just fine! Good Luck!
