Watermelon Pops Recipe

Watermelon Pops

1 cup sugar, divided

1 pkg.  (3 oz.) JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin

2 cups boiling water, divided

Ice cubes

1 cup cold water, divided

1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin

3 Tbsp. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

4 oz. ( ½  of 8 oz. pkg.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened

1 ½ cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Mix 1/3 cup sugar and dry lime gelatin mix in medium bowl.  Add 1 cup boiling water; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved.  Add enough ice to ½ cup cold water to measure ¾ cup.  Add to lime gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted.  Refrigerated 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, repeat step 1 using dry strawberry gelatin mix and omitting the refrigeration step.  Pour into 16 (3 oz.) paper cups.  Freeze 20 minutes.  Stir ½ tsp. chocolate chips into gelatin in each cup.

Beat cream cheese and remaining sugar with mixer in medium bowl until well blended.  Stir in COOL WHIP; spread over gelatin in cups.

Pour lime gelatin over cream cheese mixture.  Insert wooden pop stick into gelatin in center of each cup.  Freeze 3 hours or until firm.  Remove pops from cups just before serving.

How to easily remove frozen pops from cups:  Dip cups in warm water fir 15 seconds.  Peel off cups.  (Do not twist or pull pop sticks.)
