Spicy Kool-Aid Pickles

    This is a fun recipe for pickle lovers!  Blue Raspberry Lemonade, Mango Pineapple Habanero Pickles is a mouthful, but it was very tasty! 

    Preparation Time: 10 minutes
    Brining Time: 3-5 days


    • 1 jar of dill pickle spears
    • 1 packet (0.14 oz) unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix (choose your favorite flavor) I used Blue Raspberry Lemonade
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup of Mango Pineapple Habanero 


    Start by draining the juice from the dill pickle jar into a medium-sized bowl. Reserve the pickle spears.

    If you want, cut the pickles into bite-sized pieces.
    Combine the Kool-Aid drink mix, sugar, and hot sauce. 

    Carefully pour it over the pickle spears in the jar, making sure they are fully submerged. If needed, use a clean utensil to push down any floating pickles.

    Tightly seal the pickle jar and place it in the refrigerator.

    Allow the Kool-Aid Pickles to brine for at least 3-5 days. During this time, the pickles will absorb the Kool-Aid flavors and vibrant colors.

    After the brining period, remove the Kool-Aid Pickles from the refrigerator. They are now ready to be enjoyed!

    Serve the Kool-Aid Pickles as a unique and eye-catching addition to your next barbecue, picnic, or snack time. The tangy and sweet flavors, along with the fun colors, will surely be a hit!

    Note: Feel free to experiment with different flavors of Kool-Aid to create a variety of colorful pickles. You can also adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste preferences.
