Let’s get creative with this food.
What You Need
- 2 pkg (8 serving size) of JELL-O – pick your favorite flavor
- 2 1/2 cups of boiling water
- Measuring cup
- Heat-safe mixing bowl
- 13×9-inch baking sheet
- Mixing spoon
- Cookie cutters of various shapes
Step #1 – Pour gelatin into heat-safe mixing bowl
Step #2 – Pour the boiling water over gelatin.
Step #3 – Stir until completely dissolved – at least 3 minutes
Step #4 – Pour into 13×9-inch pan
Step #5 – Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until firm.
Step #6 – Dip bottom of the pan into warm water for 15 seconds.
Step #7 – Take cookie cutters and begin making Jigglers
