These are an experiment that was hugely successful! Even my 75 year old mother loves them! We had a hard time finding pineapple Jell-o, but it's worth the effort. For the best results, put the rum in the 'fridge for an hour or two before making these. These are NOT for children!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (6 ounce) box orange Jell-O
  • 1 (6 ounce) box pineapple Jell-O
  • 4 cups rum
  • 14-12 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Pour jell-o into a LARGE bowl.
  2. Add four cups boiling water and stir at least three minutes to dissolve jell-o.
  3. Allow to cool.
  4. Add the rum and almond extract to taste.
  5. Pour into small cups, about 1 1/2 ounces per portion.
  6. Chill at least four hours.
  7. Enjoy!

These were at hit at our last get together. Although I did add just a touch for almond extract. Awesome!

This will be a great one to take to the big shindig. Think I'll add a chunck of pinapple or a slice of orange.

I made these for a Fourth of July party this year and they went over big! Everyone loved them and they were very delicious!
