"Jellin' - Melon" Snacks
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.
