Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Make diagonal cut at one end of watermelon to cut off bottom fourth of melon. Stand watermelon, cut side down, on work surface. Use marker to draw the shark's mouth on watermelon as shown in photo. Use paring knife to cut along lines. Remove watermelon cutout and reserve for making the shark's fin.
  • Scoop pulp from large watermelon piece into large bowl, reaching into mouth to scoop out the flesh and leaving a 1-inch-thick shell on bottom and sides. Blend removed pulp, in batches, in blender until smooth. Pour watermelon purée through strainer into separate bowl, pressing strained solids with back of spoon to remove as much juice as possible. (You should have about 6 cups watermelon juice.) Discard any remaining watermelon pulp or reserve for another use.
  • Pour 2 cups watermelon juice into saucepan; bring to boil. Remove from heat. Add dry gelatin mixes; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add to remaining watermelon juice in bowl; mix well.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until thickened, stirring every 15 min.
  • Meanwhile, invert watermelon shell to drain juices from shell. Use tip of vegetable peeler to cut shallow outline 1/2 inch around mouth opening, piercing the green rind but not going through the white rind of the watermelon. Use paring knife to cut out triangles for the teeth. Cut pulp from reserved watermelon mouth piece; discard removed pulp or reserve for another use. Cut trimmed watermelon rind into fin shape; secure to back of watermelon shell with toothpicks. Use melon baller or paring knife to scoop out 2 small rounds for the eyes; fill with blueberries, securing each berry to watermelon with additional toothpick.
  • Pour thickened gelatin mixture into watermelon shell. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
  • Decorate with gummy candies as shown in photo just before serving.
