Watermelon Pops

Watermelon Pops by Cheng and 3 Kids

These Watermelon Pops are a fun and refreshing snack for the summer. As  soon as I saw this on the Kraft Recipes site (you can click here to see it) I just knew I had to make it with my little boy.

I did not have the Lime JELL-O and pop sticks so I just used Melon Fusion JELL-O and 5.5" wooden skewers instead. My favorite part would be the middle, cream cheese with Cool Whip... yum!

So here's the recipe. Enjoy!


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. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 1/2 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 1/2 cup cold water to measure 3/4 cup. Add to lime gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted. Refrigerate 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 1/2 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. Dip cups in warm water for 15 seconds. Peel off cups. (Do not twist or pull pop sticks.)
