This is a show stopper!!! Lots of oooohs and aaaaahs!

They look difficult... but are so easy!

These Jell-O Melos are a refreshing treat. So pretty and colorful! If you don't want to set them out on individual plates, put them on a big white platter and set out on the buffet table!

Let me know how you like them!

Ingredients

BOWLS:
1
honeydew
1
cantaloupe
FIRST JELL-O
1 box
strawberry or cherry jell-o
3/4 c
boiling water
1/2 c
cold water
SECOND JELL-O
1 box
lime jell-o
3/4 c
boiling water
1/2 c
cold water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut melons in half and scoop out seeds to form a clean "bowl". Scoop out as evenly as you can, the melon until there is only about a 1-inch thick layer of melon left and the "bowl" is bigger.
2
Crumple a paper towel up a bit, stuff the melon "bowls", place the "bowls" upside down on more paper towels to drain more liquid out.
3
Prepare Jello as directed on box (but use a little less water, about 1/4 cup.
Pour half of the Jell-O into 1 half of each kind of melon (two "bowls" two kinds of melon). Put in refrigerator for Jell-O to set. (About 3 hours)
4
Repeat this process using the second Jell-O and the remaining melon "bowls".
5
When the Jell-O is firm, cut the Jell-O melons into wedges. Serve two wedges of different Jell-O melons on a pretty little plate or on a bed of lettuce garnished with a few berries or grapes of your liking.
