Petite Watermelons


My daughters love to have tea parties with their dolls. These "Watermelons" are a favorite treat to make and serve.

Petite Watermelons

2 limes
1 small box of red Jello
mini chocolate chips

Cut both limes in half lengthwise. Scoop out all the fruit with a spoon. Place the limes in a muffin tin to keep them from tipping over. Make the box of Jello according to the Jiggler directions. Carefully spoon Jello into the limes halves. Chill until almost firm. Using a skewer push the mini chocolate chips into the Jello for "watermelon seeds." Chill until until firm, then cut into slices.

  12. I've seen this technique used with oranges and orange Jello, but this is a great way to take advantage of different colors and create something different!

  21. wowwww...yumm yummm! I love watermelons on sunny day, I guess this jell-o version combined with lime looks zesty. By the way, how long does it take approximately to make the jello semi-firm before you insert the chocochip? thank you

  29. Just a guess here, but couldn't one just add the mini-chips after a 10-15 minute cooldown.

    Hmmm...I have 2 limes and 5 grandkids. Will have to experiment!

  30. Well, I think this is just about the cutest thing ever! My daughter says we have got to make these!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think this is so cute and am tempted to try it the next time I make jello shots.

    ReplyDelete
  32. So I tried this and they looked great, but...BITTER, BITTER, BITTER!!!! How do you get them not to take on the bitter lime rind???

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, my kids actually love to suck on lemons and limes so I guess I never thought about the limey flavor the jello gets.

    A couple of things to try:

    sprinkle the insides with sugar before filling with jello to off-set the sour lime taste

    If it's the rind that is making it sour don't scrape out the pulp all the way to the lime. (My kids usually do the scraping part so it never gets all the way to the rind anyway).

  44. I know this post was written a year ago, but I just had to comment! Here in Australia, a popular kids party treat is "frog in the pond" - a freddo frog (chocolate) in jelly (or jell-o, in America - usually blue).

    Anway, I hate when chocolate goes all soggy from sitting in liquid, so I had to interrupt and point out that even better than chocolate chips would be ... passionfruit pips! (If you just happened to have them around, anyway)

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done. ☺ There, don't you feel better?

Please leave a comment! I enjoy hearing your thoughts, whether you agree with me or not. If we all agreed on everything how boring would that be? Worse than eating white chocolate, because it's fake. So be real, be yourself.
