Frozen Watermelon Slices Great Fourth of July Dessert

The easy, breezy and oh so hot days of Summer are upon us. So what better treat to make then one that you can whip up and stick in the freezer. These cool and creamy Frozen Watermelon Slices are perfect for those hot Summer days, a fun weeknight dessert, or even for your Fourth of July Celebration.

With only a few ingredients, the Frozen Watermelon Slices are a cinch to make, they did take some time because each layer is frozen, but they were super easy.

8 oz tub of Cool Whip (I used the non-fat variety)
12 drops green food coloring
1 pt (2 cups) raspberry sorbet, softened
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Line a 1 1/2 quart glass bowl with plastic wrap. Divide an 8 ounce tub of COOL WHIP in half and add a few drops of green food coloring.  Mix well and then line the bottom and sides of the bowl. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.  Add the remaining COOL WHIP, spreading evenly on the bottom and sides . Freeze for at least 1 hour.  Soften Strawberry or Raspberry Sorbet.   Fold chocolate chips into softened sorbet and spoon on top of COOL WHIP layer.  Freeze for at least 4 hours.  To serve, invert bowl onto a cutting board, remove bowl and plastic wrap.  Run a large sharp knife under hot water and cut in half, and then into pieces.  Serve immediately, store leftovers in freezer.
