Patriotic Jell-o Cups

Monday, July 2, 2012

With Independence Day coming up soon, I thought it would be fun to find a  fun and easy treat to make for the kids.  The concept of this is simple enough for the kids to do a lot of the work, which made my boys think I was the greatest ever.    In addition to being able to make these a day ahead, these are also super versatile and could be made to fit any holiday   (red and green for Christmas, red, pink and white for Valentines Day, etc. ).

2 small boxes of red jello (or 1 large box jello)
2 small bozes of blue jello (or 1 box large)
mini marshmallows or Cool Whip

Follow the instructions on the box to make jigglers.  Or use 2 C boiling water for every 2 boxes of jello (or large box).  Do NOT add the cold water.  You need to use less water than needed for regular jello in order to make it manageable.  Refrigerate until solid.
 Using a sharp knife (preferable dipped in hot water to make it easier),slice the jello into tiny cubes.

 Use clear cups and add one color of the cubes.  Then add some marshmallows (or Cool Whip)
 Top with the other color of jello cubes.  Optional top with extra cream.

 Lick Jello pan.  Spoons optional.
