These are really cool looking and pretty good tasting. My suggestions are to add more water to the Strawberry Jello. So, they will have the texture of a frozen pop instead of frozen Gel and also add the choc. chips to Strawberry Jello BEFORE you put it in the freezer and to make sure you FREEZE the cool whip/cream chz mixture BEFORE you add the Lime Jello. Because, if you dont you will have floaties at the base of the popcicle.

Wow, these are delicious and easy to make. The creamy middle filling is really good and makes these extra special! The only slight change I made was instead of cool whip, I made homemade whip cream because I was out of cool whip and I didn't want to run to the store.


I've now had to make these almost EVERY WEEKEND since Memorial Day when I first tried this recipe! Arrrgg! Now my 78 year father-in-law bugs my hubby when there are no watermelon pops in the freezer! Go figure! To those that had difficulty with "floating", try again. Making anything with Jello is not art, it is SCIENCE! A few tips to make it a QUICK and EASY dessert. Put three bowls out with 1/3 cup sugar in each. Have 2 measuring cups with 1/2 c. each cold water ready. To Bowl A: add strawberry jello. To Bowl B: add lime jello. To Bowl C: add cream cheese. Bowl A & B - add boiling water and stir until dissolved. Put three ice cubes into each measuring cup of cold water. Add ice water to Bowl A & B. Stir until ice is melted. Stick Bowl B in FREEZER. Have eight, 6 oz Dora the Explorer paper cups ready! (Hubby thinks they're too cute). Now, add 1/8 cup red jello (Bowl A) to each cup. You might have to level a little between the cups. Stick in freezer for at least 20 minutes. Pull cups out. Pull green jello out, stir and put in FRIDGE. Mix choco chips into red jello with plastic spoon. Mix up the sugar and cheese in Bowl C. and fold in whipped topping. Add couple of tablespoons of cheese mixture to each cup. Turn the cup as you push down the cheese with a small plastic spoon. This will make a tight and even layer. Put spoons in each. Grab green jello and finish off the pops. With 6 oz. cups, this will take a minimum of 5 hours to freeze. 15 min to assmbl.
