"Jellin' - Melon" Snacks

This recipe came from the Kraft website.  It's one I plan to try at our next weekend BBQ.  It sounds really yummy and looks good too!

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

Remove seeds from the melon halves; cut thin slice from bottom of each.   Scoop out melon flesh, leaving 1' thick shells.  Place upside-down on paper towels to drain.

Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved.  Stir in cold water.  Refrigerate 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Pour into melon shells.

Refrigerate 3 hours or until gelatin is firm.  Cut into wedges.

This recipe could also be prepared using a honeydew melon and Lime JELL-O.

Special Extra:  Add 2 cups chopped fruit to thickened gelatin before pouring into melon halves.
