Watch it wiggle…
See it jiggle…
Cool and smoothy, its jello brand gelatin. Of all the desserts you like the one that tastes so light and creates so much fun… (Or something like that, did I get the lyrics right?) It’s J E L L O!
Do you guys remember this commercial?
As soon as I opened the package of cherry jello mix, I was teleported back into time. I felt like I was 6 years old again. Do you know how certain smells bring back some fond memories? I felt like I was back in my mom’s kitchen, sitting on top of the counter because I was too short to reach, patiently stirring the jello in the white plastic tupperware until all the crystals melted.
Jello fruity gelatin is one of those desserts that never goes out of style. As a matter of fact, it just gets better. Jello is just one of those fun desserts that makes everyone smile. Kids and adults as well, love to watch this dessert jiggle and wiggle on their plate. Now, with only 10 calorie per serving sugar-free jello everyone can feel happy about eating a heart happy dessert.
Heart Happy Jello Jigglers
Serves 6 adults or 2 hungry teenagers
(adapted the recipe from the back of the package of sugar-free jello gelatin)
- 2 packages of sugar-free jello gelatin (I used cherry but there are over 20 some flavors out there to choose from)
- 2 cups boiling water (Do not add the additional cold water as described on the back of the package. This recipe will make a fun finger food dessert.)
- cooking spray- spray oil
- Heart shaped silicone molds or 9 x 11 pan
Step 1: Boil water
Step 2: Open 2 packages of jello brand gelatin and empty into medium bowl.
Step 3: Add the boiling water to the jello crystals and mix well under all the crystals have melted.
Step 4: Spray heart molds or 9 x 11 inch pan with cooking spray. Then gently pour the liquid jello gelatine into the molds.
Step 5: Refrigerate the molds for at least 3 hours or until firmly set.
Step 6: Remove heart happy jello molds from fridge and place in a shallow dish of warm water to help them unstick- about 2 minutes.
Step 7: Carefully push on the underside of the silicone mold and push out the heart-shaped cherry flavored jello jiggles. (If you used a 9 x 11 inch pan then you can now use cookie cutters or hand cut into shapes and blocks, use a spatula warmed in water to remove from bottom of pan) Be very gentle so they do not tear.
Step 8: Play with your food. Make it wiggle, jiggle and dance then pop it in your mouth. Jello jigglers are firm and made with less water than traditional jello, so you can eat it with your fingers. Enjoy the cool, refreshing and sweet taste of this childhood nostalgic favorite.
