Watermelon Jello Cookies

Cookies don't really get any cuter than these Watermelon Shaped Jello Cookies! And I think these are super yummy in a reminds-me-of-being-a-kid sort of way. I used a fabulously fun Jello Cookies and Playdough Recipe by I Heart Naptime

Just imagine how cute these would be with some Watermelon Mojitos! You could have yourself a watermelon-themed Summer party :)
