The Knox Blox I Remember

My family was outraged when I recently banned premade Jello cups from our house. Enough already with the new convenient society, how hard is it to make Jello? To appease the rioting horde, I promised them I would make the best Jello they'd ever had, Jello they could pick up, the Knox Box I used to eat when I was a kid. Finding the super simple recipe was harder than I thought it would be, but I looked and looked and this is what I remember from my childhood. (The new Jello Jigglers don't cut it for me; they taste too much like gummy bears.) I'm surprised this isn't already on Zaar, but now it is!

Directions

  1. Put Jello and Knox gelatin into a bowl. Add water and stir until dissolved.
  2. Pour into 9x13 inch pan. Cool in refrigerator.
  3. When firm, (4 to 5 hours) cut into squares. I've used the chill time as the cook time.

I too, used to make this recipe and like everyone else, It is so much better than the jigglers of today. I used to make these for my kid's school parties. They were a huge hit. None was ever left. In place of water, I would use fruit juice - it made them just a little healthier. I would then use small cookie cutters for different shapes. Because of the uneven shapes, there would be a lot of leftover waste. I would melt the leftover jello down and allow it to set again (in a smaller pan) and I would be able to make more. I would keep repeating this until it was gone. No waste.

I have the actual well worn recipe and it is a bit different as they use 4 Knox gelatin packets to 3 jello packets with 4 cups of boiling water poured into a 8 or 9 inch pan. I think we liked them thinner so put it in a 9X13 pan.

We loved these. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used sugar free jello. They were gone in a day and I had to make more. Great healthy snack for my boys. I remember eating these as a kid too.
