Kraft Kitchens Tips

Watermelon Bowl
Select a large round watermelon (12 to 14 lb.). Cut off thin slice from bottom of melon, then cut off top 1/3 of melon. If desired, use sharp knife to scallop edge of larger watermelon piece. Scoop out fruit from both pieces with melon baller. Invert watermelon shell on paper towels; let stand to drain excess juices before filling with fruited gelatin. Mix desired amount of watermelon with other fruits before adding to gelatin as directed. Reserve remaining watermelon for snacking or another use.
Prepare using your favorite flavor of regular JELL-O Gelatin, or 4 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin.
To Prepare in a Large Oblong Watermelon Bowl (18 to 20 lb.)
Prepare Watermelon Bowl as directed. Prepare fruited gelatin as directed, using 3 pkg. (8-serving size each) or 6 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Gelatin and 1-1/2 qt. (6 cups) each boiling water, cold water and assorted fruit. Makes 24 servings.
