Halloween Jello Jigglers

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Who remembers Jello Jigglers from when they were a kid?!  I can think of a few times my mom made them for us and we loved them.  So, when I was shopping at Walmart a few weeks ago, and saw some fun Jello flavors, I wanted to make them for Henley.  My husband had the bright idea to get a silicone mold for them instead of using cookie cutters and the result is genius!  Here is how to make an easy Jello Jigglers treat for your family:

Halloween Jello Jigglers
(Makes roughly 12 servings)


What you need: 
  • 1 box of Jello in any flavor
  • Silicone mold
  • 1 1/4 Cups boiling water
  • Pam spray
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Spouted measuring cup


 Directions:
  1. Bring 1 1/4 C water to a boil and add to Jello mix in a bowl.  Whisk together for 3 minutes, until gelatin is dissolved.
  2. Prepare your silicone mold by lightly spraying each individual mold/shape with Pam. I rub it in with a paper towel so that there isn't an excess of Pam...it will leave a film on your jello if you have too much in there, yuck! 
  3. Transfer gelatin mixture to a spouted measuring cup and pour evenly between your molds.  If you fill your molds about 1/3 full, you should yield about 12 shapes.
  4. Place molds in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours (until firm).  In my fridge, they are usually ready in about an hour.
  5. Enjoy!

I have been making these every week as a little afternoon snack or after dinner treat!  They are so fun, especially for little ones.  I alternate which mold I use and I even have one mold with space shapes and my daughter loves to pick out which one she wants.  She runs to the fridge saying "Jello! Moon! Star!" and its so cute, it makes it hard to say no! Haha! 

Hope your family enjoys these as much as we do!
