Jello Jigglers (For Cookie Cutters)

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Roxygirl in Colorado

I get really frustrated with Jello that doesn't set-up. I have made these "fool-proof" jigglers a million times for my kids. It's the only recipe I've used that's firm enough to cut out with cutters. Very easy for kids to make, too.

I have been using this recipe for years as an ex-kindergarten teacher. One thing I did discover is that you can microwave any scraps until they are liquid again and then just pour them into the pan and refrigerate them again and make more out of the scraps. That way the kids can use it all to make shapes with cookie cutters.
