Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Then follow our 3 simple steps:
  • Cut 1 melon (3-1/2 to 4 lb.) in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Scoop out melon, leaving each half with a 1-inch-thick shell. Chop removed melon; drain well. Cut thin slice off bottom of each melon shell to allow it to stand upright.
  • Stir 1-1/2 cups boiling water into 2 pkg. (85 g each) Jell-O Jelly Powder in large bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in 1-1/2 cups cold water. Add 1/2 cup of the reserved chopped melon and 1/2 cup fruit to jelly mixture.
  • Fill melon shells with jelly mixture. Pour any remaining jelly into small bowl to enjoy later. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Cut each melon half into four wedges to serve.

Best of Season

This can be made all year round. Just look for the fruit that is in season for the best prices!

Food Facts

To make Jell-O that is clear and uniformly set, be sure that the jelly is completely dissolved in the boiling water before adding the cold liquid.

Make it Easy

Instead of cutting off the bottoms of the melon halves, place melon shells in small bowls on a tray for easy transportation to the refrigerator.
