Koolicks (Koolaid Pickles)

So I tried something this summer and a friend just asked for the recipe.  Sadly, I can't find any pictures but I'm sure you can google it and see hundreds of them.  This is my recipe for making these, which used less sugar than most of the recipes I've seen.


  • 2 Quart sized jars of Dill Pickles (I used my refrigerator half sours with added dill.)
  • 1 pkg of Koolaid (I used Black Cherry for the color)
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  1.  Drain the Brine from the pickle jars into a large bowl.
  2. Add Koolaid packet and sugar to the bowl and stir until sugar and mix is dissolved
  3. Pour back into jars, filling to the brim
  4. reseal jars and place in the refrigerator for at least one week, two is better.

 Both jars were consumed within a day of opening, One at a party, and one as a gift to a Monsignor friend (hence the color choice). I thought it was a nice balance of sweet and salty.  I have NOT tried this will commercial pickles, so your mileage may vary.  Let me know in the comments how your koolicks turn out.
