These push-ups are as fun to eat as the creamy orange ones are, but they don't leave a dripping mess all over your fingers and clothes. Plus, they're a blast to make with adults and kids, and the little ones will love them. Help in the kitchen and a cute dessert to boot? That's a win-win in my book.
Making cupcakes look like watermelons is so easy. Honestly. I shouldn't even be writing about how easy it is, but since I'm already here... Basically you mix white cake mix (from a box) with all the fixin's it requires, add some food coloring and some mini chocolate chips, stir and pour into cupcake liners.
Then you bake them and do your best to resist the urge to rip open the oven door and shove 15 half-baked cupcakes into your mouth. Which, of course, is much easier said than done.
If any cupcakes have survived the cooling process, then that's when the real fun happens. You get to play "operation" by sticking multiple holes into the tops so the yummy Jell-O mix you whipped up can seep into the cupcakes, giving them that necessary watermelon flavor. I mean, what's the point of a watermelon cupcake if it doesn't actually taste like watermelon?
Don't worry, the pouring-liquid-Jell-O-into-cupcakes part will be a giant mess. That's why I put down some paper so my table didn't end up a sticky disaster. After this, you stick them into the fridge to soak up the flavor for a few hours. (You'll probably spend this time trying to get wet Jell-O out of your hair.) After that, you're ready to assemble the push-up pops in the push pop containers.
This is the easiest part. You cut out the center of the cupcake, add a layer of green frosting, add another center of the cupcake and then one more layer of frosting. Then you top the whole thing with fancy green sprinkles. And you're done! I promise you, it's just that easy.
