  • Ice cream scoop, watermelon slicer, or spoon
  • Knife
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups
  • Pot for boiling water
  • Paper towels
  • Leveled space in your refrigerator (it’s a good idea to clear a space in advance:)


  • 1 Mini seedless watermelon
  • 2 (6 ounce) boxes of cherry Jello mix or any red/pink Jello flavor of your choice
  • Water (boiled and cold)


  • Slice the mini seedless watermelon in half.
  • 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:)
  • Using paper towels, dry off the inside of each watermelon half.
  • 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).
  • Pour the bowl of prepared Jello mixture into the hollowed-out watermelon halves.
  • Put the Jello-filled watermelon halves in the refrigerator. Place some paper towels underneath them just in case you spill any (I usually do!).
  • Let the Jello-filled watermelon sit in the refrigerator for 6 hours or until it is completely firm.
  • 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).
