Fourth of July Frozen Jello Pops

Jello + Cream Cheese = YUM!

What you'll need to make these super sweet yummy treats:

1 cup sugar (divided)
1 pkg (3 oz) of jello - I used Berry Blue
1 pkg (3 oz) of another flavor of jello - I used Watermelon
2 cups boiling water (divided)
1 cup cold water (divided)
1/2 pkg (4 oz) cream cheese (softened)
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip
16  3 oz paper cups
16 popsicle sticks

Mix 1/3 cup sugar with watermelon jello; Add 1 cup boiling water; Stir for 2 minutes or until dissolved.  Add enough ice to 1/2 cup cold water to measure 3/4 cup; Add to watermelon jello; Stir til ice melts; Refrigerate for 25 minutes.

Repeat step one with the berry blue jello - only omit the refrigeration part.

Pour berry blue jello into the paper cups and freeze for 20 minutes.

Beat cream cheese and the remaining sugar with a mixer til blended; Stir in Cool Whip and spread over (the frozen) jello.

Next pour the refrigerated jello over the cream cheese mixture; Insert popsicle stick in the center.

 Freeze for 3 hours or til firm....we left ours in over night.

Doesn't this just scream SUMMER!?!
