The girls have been begging me to decorate for Halloween. I'll admit, when it comes to decorating for holidays I'm pretty lazy. I finally gave in and helped the girls decorate a little bit around the house.
I surprised the girls with a fun snack to eat while decorating. While they were at school I made JELL-O's Halloween JIGGLERS Hands. The girls love theme snacks so I knew they'd get a kick out of these hands!
I modified the recipe just slightly. I used Raspberry and Strawberry flavors since those two flavors are the favorite flavors around here. I've never mixed flavors before so I was nervous but I will say it was probably the best tasting JELL-O I've ever had! I will forever mix these two flavors.
I was worried that cutting the JIGGLERS without a cookie cutter would be hard but it was fairly easy. The hardest part though, was getting the JIGGLERS out of the pan. I used a glass pan, it would have been much easier to get the hand out had I greased the bottom of the pan. I thought about doing that but since the directions didn't say to, I didn't. I also had a hard time seeing where I had cut. I was able to get all those little hands out of the pan and on to plates for the kids.
The brain got me thinking! I'm going to make green, slimy zombie brains for Halloween. I'll use Lime JELL-O and I will make it in the glass pan, once the JELL-O is set, I'll chop it up, or let the kids do it, and make little brain piles. We can stick some bug candies in the brains to make them look extra creepy.
All of the JELL-O JIGGLERS recipes are quick, simple and fun. Which makes them perfect for me, I love fast and easy!
