Yup. Those are ice cubes. You can find the recipe here. While you're there, check out the reviews. You will literally be rolling on the floor laughing.
Here a few of my favorite reviews:
"I guess they turned out OK. I assumed, like muffins, you had to grease the pan first. They did come out nice and easy, but they made our drinks awfully greasy. Next time I will grease AND flour the pan. Anyone else have this same problem?"
"This recipe is horrible! Maybe I should have left them in longer than two minutes (the recipe doesn't say how long to leave them in the freezer so I just kind of guessed) but mine came out all watery. I won't be making these again."
"I was wondering if you had a crock-pot version for this recipe. I work long hours and I just don't have the time to invest in this kind of hands-on cooking, but they really look yummy."
"KILLER RECIPE! Now I know what that other compartment that gets super cold is for. It sure didn't keep my lettuce happy. I also vaguely remember Ice Cubes from my childhood. G'ma made them for special occasions."
"The ice cubes were literally frozen and made my tea, coffee, soup unpleasantly cold. Besides, I prefer fresh to frozen ingredients. Sharon123's recipe for boiled Water is much better."
Sidenote: I also found this recipe for Boiled Water. Once again, read the reviews.
Sidenote 2: I could've used the recipe for Boiled Water when I was a teenager. While boiling water for pasta one evening, I sat down to read a book and ended up literally "burning water". My mom, as you can imagine, was thrilled when she had to throw out the ruined pan.
Incidentally, when my not-so-culinarily-inclined sister got married, I made her a cookbook with some of my favorite easy recipes. The first section of the book included recipes for ice cubes, boiled water, and toast. Yup, I'm that sister.
