Watermelon Pops

Watermelon Pops

1 cup sugar, divided
1 package (3 ounces) lime flavor gelatin
2 cups boiling water, divided
Ice cubes
1 cup cold water, divided
1 package (3 ounces) strawberry flavor gelatin
3 tablespoons miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 package (4 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups thawed whipped topping

Mix 1/3 cup sugar and 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 previous step using strawberry gelatin mix and omitting the refrigeration step. Pour into 16 (3 ounce) paper cups. Freeze 20 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon chocolate chips into gelatin in each cup.

Beat cream cheese and remaining sugar with mixer in medium bowl until well blended. Stir in whipped topping, spread over gelatin in cups.

Pour lime gelatin over cream cheese mixture. Insert wooden pop stick or plastic spoon into gelatin in center of each cup. Freeze 3 hours or until firm. Remove pops from cups just before serving by dipping cups in warm water for 15 seconds. Peel off cups. (Do not twist or pull on handle.)
