Frozen honey is incredibly easy to make and requires almost no effort at all -- the clue is in the name. All you need is raw honey and a water bottle to pour it into.

Stick the honey in the freezer for at least two to three hours -- most food influencers recommend an eight-hour freeze period -- until it gets a gelatinous or "popsicle-like" texture. You'll be hard-pressed to find a simpler recipe.

"It’s so ridiculously easy to make, we don’t know why we haven’t been treating ourselves to it for years," says Delish.

Of course, any recipe can always be improved upon, so feel free to leave your creativity shine. Don't be afraid to experiment with color -- loads of people are using food dye in their frozen honey.

For a crunchy kick, add sprinkles or crushed candy. For extra chewiness, mix in some bubblegum balls. Really, any sweet treats you can think of will do -- let your imagination run free!

If you're not a fan of honey, you can substitute it with corn syrup. For extra flavor, add some powdered drink mix.

Some people are even freezing the squeezable package that honey comes in. Really, the possibilities are endless.

According to Today, the mastermind behind this viral trend is TikToker Davey RZ. Inspired by a YouTube video of someone eating a jelly-like frozen substance squeezed from a bottle, Davey RZ first tried Googling the ingredients with no success before realizing honey would do the trick.

"I keep my honey in the fridge," he said. "So when I tried squeezing it out to try and make the jelly, I noticed it had the same effect I saw on YouTube. I threw the bottle of honey in the freezer and boom — I discovered the secret to making frozen honey jelly."

Why It's The Perfect Summer Snack

The great advantage of this jelly goodness is that it's incredibly versatile and will keep your creative juices flowing once you're stuck into it.
