This post comes to you entirely on behalf of my kid. We were grocery shopping a couple of weeks ago, and she asked if I could buy her some cherry flavored gelatin packs. We don’t really eat gelatine at home, but I thought… what the heck. She explained that there was a recipe she wanted us to try, she got it from one of her favorite apps: ABC Food.
This is a very easy recipe you can make with your kids at home. Just dissolve the jello packs in boiling water and let it set (be careful that the kids don’t get burned with the hot water). When they are done and you cut out the shapes and they can eat them with their hands, which makes it a great idea for birthday parties, or an after school activity.
We tried to cut out star shapes, but the mold I used was probably too small and it did not turn out well. If you want to use a star shape, choose a 2 inch mold. Another tip, is that when using your mold, wiggle it as you push down to cut through the jello completely. Dipping it in hot water before cutting would probably help… I just thought of that as I write.
On lifting the shapes, I have an offset spatula at home, so it was easy for me to get them out. You don’t have to go out to buy one, you can use a butter knife or try to lift them out with your fingers.
