You can make some extraordinarily creative delicacies with a few boxes of jello and a handful of great ideas. Sometimes, regular jello can be boring, plain and kind of bland, but with some kitchen flair, you can create a dessert fit for Food Network. You will just need the supplies for each recipe and some creative curiosity. Don't worry if your Jello creations aren't perfect the first time. Jello is inexpensive and always fun to experiment with.
Set a pan of regular jello about 1 to 2 inches deep. Plan out some ocean creatures, like a shark, octopus, stingray or fish. When The jello is partially set, add gummy fish, gummy worms, candy corn, and other snacks into the jello. When the jello is fully set you can use a knife to carefully cut out a shark with candy corn teeth, an octopus with gummy worm tentacles, a stingray with a Twizzlers tail, or a big fish with a little gummy fish inside. You can also use cookie cutters to remove the shapes from the jello pan.
Jello cake can be an easy party treat and bring some flavor to an old recipe. Bake a regular cake, any flavor, and let it cool. Then poke some holes in the cake with chopsticks or a skewer. After that, mix up some jello and allow it to slightly cool, but not become too thick and set. While it is still in a primarily liquid state, pour the jello over the entire cake. The jello will penetrate into the holes and give every bite some new flavor! Any flavor can go with vanilla, and try cherry jello with chocolate cake.
Jello layers are squares of jello with flavors stacked on top of each other. Pick your first flavor, and let it sit in the refrigerator for an hour or two, then pour it into your mold. Mix your next flavor, and let it sit again and chill for an hour or two. Then pour it in. Repeat for as many layers you have room for. Make sure each layer is chilled and slightly thickened before you poor it, or it could mix with the layer below. Try adding whipped cream to add a little white shade to your colors.
