Rainbow Jello Treats
Keeping with the St. Patrick’s theme of the week, I thought I would show you a “recipe” (term used lightly!) that your kids will love!
I am so bummed the pictures didn’t turn out better for these- I even tried “enhancing them” on picnik.com, but they still look kind of dark! Someday I will learn to use my nice camera!
Anyway, its really easy to get this look, it just takes time!
Mix one color at a time and let it set completely before you add the next color on top. It takes about an hour for each color to set, so if you’re trying to make these in the morning before dinner like I was, you really have to plan your day around Jell-O! If you’re planning to be home anyway, then its a piece of cake. It takes less than 5 minutes to boil, mix and pour each color, so really the longest part is just waiting for it in the fridge.
Next time I will just skip the orange and do red, yellow, green and purple. The orange and red look like the same color, so I can eliminate that color and save myself an hour!
I am not a huge Jello-O fan, (especially grape- yuck! I had to dump my whole top layer into the sink from the start) but my kids love it, so this was a hit!
And you can’t beat the cost, right? I just bought the small packages of the store brand and a couple boxes of the Jell-O brand because the store brand doesn’t come in every flavor, and it was around a dollar a box. I ended up getting 9 glasses of rainbow Jell-O, which is way more than my family can eat! So this was a fun and cheap snack!
