Cantaloupe and Pineapple Jello Bundt

My friend JustJenn visited Hawaii recently and brought me back some treats. No, not chocolate covered mac nuts like everyone else, but boxes of Island Pineapple Jello direct from Hawaii. Awesome. :)

I used a melon baller and "balled" up one cantaloupe. So, it's sorta like a tunnel of fruit, unlike my recent tunnel of egg.

Come back tomorrow for another Bundt! I might have some special friends helping me...because I'm making desserts for my friend's wedding on Saturday. Dessert bar for 125 people may kill me, so I'm bringing in support! :) - mary the food librarian

Recipe:
2 small boxes of Island Pineapple Jello (or other flavor). 6 oz total.
2 envelopes of Knox gelatin
1 cantaloupe, balled (about 35 cantaloupe balls

1. Sprinkle Knox gelatin envelopes over 1/2 cup cold water (in large bowl).
2. After 5 minutes (to allow gelatin to bloom), add the Island Pineapple Jello to the bowl. Add 2 cups boiling water. Stir until dissolved.
3. Add 2 cups cold water and mix.
4. Chill the Jello until slightly thickened. Add to Jello mold along with fresh cantaloupe. Chill until completely set.
Pin It!

That is just awesome. I recently found Island Pineapple jello at my local supermarket and made jigglers for my kids with it. Yum!

Wow this is one beautiful bundt! I love that you balled the melon instead of cutting it into chunks, brings the whole thing together.
