I love cute food

I don't really like Jell-O and I definitely don't like melon... but this recipe makes me want to eat both of them! Aren't they the cutest thing you've ever seen?  It's Jell-O and melon snacks from Kraft!

I get a weekly email from Kraft with recipe using Kraft branded products - they're always super easy things but not always WLS friend or high-protein.  This one is all carbs, so you'd need to have it as a side dish at a cookout, but it's so dang cute, how could you resist?!

Check out the Kraft Recipes website for lots of great recipes and meal ideas. Here's the recipe (how easy is this, really!)

"Jellin' Melon" Snacks

1 cantaloupe, cut lengthwise in half
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin (use sugar free!)
1/2 cup cold water

REMOVE seeds from melon halves; cut thin slice from bottom of each. Scoop out melon flesh, leaving 1-inch-thick shells. Place upside-down on paper towels to drain.

ADD boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 15 min. or until slightly thickened. Pour into melon shells.

REFRIGERATE 3 hours or until gelatin is firm. Cut into wedges.
