What You Need

1
 cantaloupe, cut lengthwise in half
3/4
cup  boiling water
1
pkg.  (3 oz.) JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin
1/2
cup  cold water

Make It

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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
