Tools:

1. Paper towels
2. 2 large bowls (one to mix the Jell-O, one for the watermelon you’ll scoop out)
3. 2 small sheet trays or baking dishes (each needs to be big enough to fit a watermelon half)
4. Liquid measuring cup
5. Electric kettle (or you can boil water another way)
6. Cutting board
7. Kitchen spoon
8. Whisk
9. Chef’s knife

Watermelon Prep:

-First, cut the watermelon in half

-Cut and scoop out the fleshy part of the watermelon

-Smooth the inside of the watermelon halves as much as you can

-Ta-da! Watermelon bowls!

-Now line some baking sheets with paper towels so the halves don’t tip in the fridge (that would be tragic)

Jello Prep:

-Dump the jello mix and unflavored gelatin mix in a bowl

-Pour in 4 cups of boiling water and whisk that sucker

-Add four cups of vodka, and whisk some more

*Now pour the mix into the watermelon halves*

Throw those puppies in the fridge. Wait approximately four hours for those bad boys to harden. THEN, cut them into one inch slices, and then down to bite size. Unless you want jello shots bigger than your face. If that’s the case, more power to you. They should look like this:
