supercute patriotic pops! ♥

Here is a supercute homemade idea for the fourth.... patriotic pops out of jello! too cute!

1 pkg (small) Cherry Jello
  • 1 pkg (small) Blue Jello
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups boiling water, divided
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 cups cold water, divided
  • 1 tub Whipped Topping, thawed
  • Directions:
    Combine the Cherry Jello and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium bowl, stir. Add 1 cup boiling water, stir at least 2 minutes until dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to 1 cup of cold water to make 2 cups. Add to jello and stir until ice is melted. Pour evenly into 16 (5oz) paper or plastic cups. Freeze 1 hour
    Meanwhile, mix blue jello and 1/2 cup sugar, adding water the exact same way you did for the Cherry jello. Refrigerate 1 hour.
    Spoon a couple heaping tablespoons of Whipped Topping onto Cherry jello, top evenly with blue jello. Freeze 1 hour or until almost firm, insert popsicle stick, freeze additional 4 hours or overnight.
    Run hot water on outside of cup to release Rocket Pop.

    Note: These were a little more messy than I expected them to be, the whipped topping floated around a bit, for next time I will freeze it for a bit before adding the blue jello. To add the sprinkles, I dribbled water on the Rocket Pop, then added the sprinkles!
