Jello Watermelon

Jello Watermelon
We first saw this project here, and thought it was so cute that we ended up making it for the 4th of July! The kids loved it…and so did the grown-ups!

What You Need:

  • The rind of 1/2 of a large watermelon
  • 4 large boxes red Jell-O (6 oz., we used cherry)
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips (we eyeballed it, and I think we used less)

**DO NOT FOLLOW DIRECTIONS ON THE JELL-O BOXES – YOUR “WATERMELON” WILL COME OUT TOO SOFT!!**

Scoop out the fruit with a melon making sure to get all the way down to the green rind. You may have to shave a little off the bottom of the outside of the rind to make it stand up straight – just be sure not to cut all the way through! Boil the water, add the Jell-O and stir well. Then pour the mixture into your rind. Place your “watermelon” in the refrigerator. When the mixture is firm but not completely set, push mini-chocolate chips into the Jell-O using a chopstick or skewer. Let set completely in the fridge.

When ready to serve, slice with a sharp knife and enjoy!

*We also thought that for a grown-up treat, you could add some vodka to the water mixture! Yum!
