So easy. I could not believe when I found a recipe for sherbet using jello! You can make any flavor. Watermelon sherbet is my favorite! I added chocolate chips. Thats the way I order when I go to friendlys. Not to mention, makes it look like a real watermelon. Imagine the fun things You can do with this sherbet.
They carry watermelon jello, I like tart so I used jolly rancher watermelon! ;)
