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.

    I made this and of course mine didn't turn out like the pic. I had a pretty big melon and ended up using 2 boxes of Jello.
