What could be better than big ice balls!
– 2 inches in diameter, to be exact, which is only about 1/10th of an inch smaller than a tennis ball. With the Ice Ball Mold Tray you can make four (or eight) at a time, then store them in your freezer until you need them. We filled the mold with water and put them in the freezer. After about 3-4 hours, all were frozen solid.
Or maybe try the more conventional method of ice ball carving…. 🙂
- Our Rating:
- The ice balls had some fracture lines showing, but they were intact when they came out of the mold and into a couple of drinks.
- We learned to leave the top half-inch of the molds unfilled, which accounted for the expansion of water on freezing (about 9% greater than the liquid volume) and eliminated some of the fracture lines.
