I love that the jello slices keep their shape. Jello will last for a few days in the refrigerator, so you don’t have to cut it all up at once.

You Will Need

  • Mini seedless watermelon
  • Two 6 oz. boxes of cherry Jello mix or any red/pink Jello flavor of your choice
  • Measuring cup
  • Watermelon slicer (like this), spoon, or ice cream scoop
  • Pot for boiling water

  • Paper towels
  • Large knife 
  • Leveled space in your refrigerator (it’s a good idea to clear a space in advance:)

Directions

  1. Slice the mini seedless watermelon in half. 
  2. Remove the watermelon from the inside! It’s a great idea to get one of these watermelon slicers! You don’t have to throw away the watermelon. Enjoy it as usual:) 
  3. Using paper towels, dry off the inside of each watermelon half. 
  4. Prepare the two boxes of Jello mix according to the directions on the box in a large mixing bowl (you’ll need 4 cups of boiling water and 4 cups of cold water).
  5. Pour the bowl of prepared Jello mixture into the hollowed out watermelon halves.
  6. Put the jello filled watermelon halves in the refrigerator. Place some paper towels underneath them just in case you spill any (I usually do!).
  7. Let the Jello filled watermelon sit in the refrigerator for 6 hours or until it is completely firm. 
  8. Remove the watermelon and slice it into pieces! NOTE: slice thick pieces! If the slices are too thin, the jello won’t stand up tall (it will flop over).
