Happy Easter to all that celebrate. And, to those that don’t but like jello, here’s a fun dessert idea.
This is my daughter’s absolute favorite dessert. I only make it on Easter; not only because of the shape but because it takes 6 hours to make. It’s easy, but timely. Setting aside 6 consecutive hours at home isn’t easy.
Besides finding the time, you need to have the appropriate molds. I bought mine years ago. Here’s what one looks like (I have 4):
If you can’t find a place to purchase these molds, you can make your own. All you need is an a left over egg carton and basic plastic egg containers. The full directions for making the molds can be found at this website
When I make these I like to go for the full rainbow effect. I start buy purchasing small boxes of instant jello: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Depending on store availability, I vary the actual flavors.
Step 1 – prepare molds by coating with cooking spray or vegetable oil
Step 2 – close molds completely
Step 3 – Prepare Jello Flavor: boil 2/3 cup of water and mix with one flavor of jello, whisk for 2 full minutes. Carefully pour liquid jello into the molds. One small box is sufficient for 24 egg molds. (If doing the full rainbow)
Step 4 – Chill for exactly 1 hour
Step 5 – Remove molds from fridge and repeat Step 3 and Step 4 again for each flavor of jello
Step 6 – Chill the full molds for 3 hours. Remove from refrigerator, and carefully separate the mold halves. ENJOY
*Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator
It’s just about time to add my next layer of jello. Gotta Run.
