Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Remove seeds from melon halves; cut thin slice from bottom of each half. Scoop out melon flesh, leaving 1-inch-thick shells. Place upside-down on paper towels to drain.
  • Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 15 min. or until slightly thickened. Pour into melon shells.
  • Refrigerate 3 hours or until gelatin is firm. Cut each melon half into 4 wedges.

Special Extra

Add 2 cups chopped fruit to thickened gelatin before pouring into melon halves. Since fresh or frozen pineapple, papaya, kiwi, figs, guava and gingerroot all contain enzymes that prevent gelatin from setting, never use them in gelatin recipes. But you can use any canned fruits or juices since the canning process kills this enzyme.

Variation

Prepare using a honeydew melon and JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "mac&cheese every meal" son asked for this for breakfast and for his lunchbox! My "mac&cheese every meal" son asked for this for breakfast and for his lunchbox! It's a little tricky to slice into wedges thin enough to bite into as shown, so we cut the half in half lengthwise, then into half-inch pizza slice shaped wedges the other direction. One box of Berry Blue prepared as directed here filled half a large honeydew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are so fun for the kids, and easy to make. These are so fun for the kids, and easy to make. Better alternative on a hot day to give them instead of ice cream. Fun, jiggly jello, with a serving of fruit. My kids love these. They go over great at parties, especially for people watching their weight. I've used the sugar free jello also, and they come out fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A GREAT treat to at a picnic! A GREAT treat to at a picnic! After thoroughly chilling, simply put the two melon halves together and wrap with plastic wrap before adding to your cooler. At the picnic, simply unwrap and slice. It's bright, refreshing, and the kids can eat it like watermelon, if they want to. FUN!

Dear the reviewer who asked how did they get the jello in two different colors and how to keep them from mixing.....I believe they used two halfs. One with green jello and the other half with red jello. Once cut, they put slices of each on the plate.
