  • Add boiling water to gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir 3 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water.
  • Refrigerate 1-1/2 hours or until thickened.
  • Add fruit; stir. Pour into Watermelon Bowl. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.

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.

Variation

Prepare using 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) of your favorite flavor of regular JELL-O Gelatin, or 4 pkg. (0.3 oz. each) JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin.

How 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. (0.6 oz. each) or 6 pkg. (0.3 oz. each) JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin and 1-1/2 qt. (6 cups) each boiling water, cold water and assorted fruit. Makes 24 servings.

Fresh Fruits to Avoid in Gelatin Recipes

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I brought this to a "barbecue theme" pot luck and everyone loved it! I brought this to a "barbecue theme" pot luck and everyone loved it! I made the edge a little fancier with a specialty knife I got from a pampered chef party years ago. Also, brought a container of lite cool whip. With most people being calorie conscious these days, it disappeared. People preferred this over a chocolate cake.

I can't wait to try different combinations of Jell-o and fruit. (NOTE: Do NOT use Kiwi or Pineapples - the Jell-O will not set and you will be left with a watery fruit mix)
