Cosmic Crystal Ball

This was my kid's Halloween Favorite, now it is my Grandkid's!


  • 4 (3 oz.) pkg. yellow Jell-O
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • Ad
  • 6 cups boiling water
  • Melon, cantaloupe, watermelon and blueberries


In a large, deep bowl, mix the Jell-O and the unflavored gelatin. Pour the boiling water over the mixture and stir until completely dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until partially set.

Meanwhile, use cookie cutters to carve the melons into stars and moons (sets of the cutters or aspic cutters are available in kitchen supply stores for about $16 and are worth the investment). Press all the fruit into the partially set gelatin, then refrigerate for 4 more hours, or until set.

Place the bowl in a pan of hot water to loosen the Jell-O from the sides, then invert onto a wizard-like platter
