I used Recipe ID: 1297471 (Microwave for 4 minutes A Small Amount of Homemade Condensed Milk)
These are the ice bar molds that I bought from 100 yen shop.
Place condensed milk in a bowl and add milk gradually. Stir well. I made the condensed milk myself using Recipe ID: 1297471.
Pour mixture into molds and chill well in the freezer – for a day if possible. Hold these molds upside down ie. stick side down - and run water over the top so that you can pull the candy out from the molds.

Story Behind this Recipe
I bought the ice bar mold from the 100 yen shop. I tried many recipes to enjoy homemade ice candy often. This refreshing taste is my favourite. I will attempt to make more varieties for the summer. The warm homemade condensed milk mixes easily with cold milk.
These ice candies have less sweetness than normal ice candies, except for the azuki beans flavour. If you have a sweet tooth, please adjust the sugar amount. If you reduce the azuki beans, please increase the milk amount. This ice candy might melt more quickly than ice candy sold in shops. Try putting the ice candy in the freezer for a while after you pull out from the molds. It will set hard.
