Directions to make your watermelon pudding cups:
Before starting with your watermelon dessert, make sure to round up all your ingredients for your watermelon jello recipe. I find it’s much easier when you’re not running around the kitchen!
Once you have your ingredients, begin preparing the jello according to package directions. Then, fill each cup 1/4 of the way full with green jello and allow the jello to set in the fridge for approximately 2 hours.
Next, prepare the pudding according to package directions and add 2-3 drops of pink food coloring and mix well with a blender. Be sure not to add too much food coloring as you want it to result in a very light pink color often resembled with watermelon. Then, fill each cup up the rest of the way with your pink pudding.
Top the watermelon pudding cups with 4-5 chocolate chips and optionally, top with watermelon candies.
Serve and enjoy your delicious watermelon dessert!
