Homemade Kool-Aid Pickles

Have you guys heard of or tried Kool-aid pickles?? If you read that and thought, what, is that just pickles that are then further brined in Kool-aid, then you hit the nail on the head! It might sound a little crazy at first, but if you’re a pickle lover or just an enthusiast for all things sweet and tart, it really doesn’t get better than this.

How long you leave the pickles to soak up the the Kool-aid is up to you, as are the flavor(s) you choose

For each Kool-Aid flavor:
1 (32 oz.) jar whole dill pickles, undrained
2/3 cup sugar
1 (.16 oz.) package unsweetened Kool-Aid mix
Mason jars, as needed

Remove pickles from jar and cut each in half lengthwise.
Pour pickle brine evenly into four bowls, or directly into mason jars, then stir 1 Kool-Aid packet and 2/3 cup sugar into each jar until dissolved.
Add pickles to mason jars (they should be covered by liquid), seal and refrigerate for 5-7 days before serving.
