Frosty Melon 1960s Recipe

Here is a fun way to have Jell-O and be sure to serve it on vintage dishes!


1 package (3oz) Jell-O gelatin (any flavor)
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup cold water
1 medium cantaloupe or honeydew melon
1 cup drained fruit or marshmallows
2-3 packages (3oz) cream cheese
2 TBPS milk
Dissolve Jell-O gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water. Chill until very thick. Meanwhile, peel melon, leaving it whole. Cut a slice from one end, scoop out seeds and drain well. Place melon upright in a bowl. Fold fruit or marshmallows into thickened Jell-O and spoon into melon. Replace cut slice and fasten with toothpicks. Chill. Blend cream cheese with enough milk to make smooth and fluffy. Cut a thin slice from melon for a flat bottom. Place on a vintage plate or platter and spread cream cheese over melon. Slice to serve.  Enjoy!
