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.
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, I loved Knox blocks as a kid! I made these today and used the jello Christmas mold and with the remaining mixture I put it in a 8x8 pan. I also used sugar free jello. I will try the four packets of gelatin next time and see if it makes much of a difference.
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.
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.
Very tasty knox blox, but we prefer ours a bit more rubbery. . .LOL. . .the recipe with 4 packs of Knox and 3 boxes of Jello. I am very glad I tried this out though! I made them into all kinds of shapes for my toddler who believes that jello is a food group.
I totally remember making these with my cousins when I was younger. I made with my girls for a new summer treat.
I so remember these too & spent an afternoon with my son making these and throwing them against out sliding glass door & watching them wiggle down. I remember fondly throwing Knox Blox against our walls & am happy to revisit the tossin' and tastin' Thanks windy_moon
I made these for my son's birthday party, but instead of putting them in a 9x13 inch pan, I poured the gelatin into 24 muffin cups. I also put gummis face down on the bottom (which became the top) for the kids. They loved it! I just had to dip the muffin tins in warm water for a few seconds and they fell right out of the molds onto the pan I had turned them over on to. Easy, peasy, neat and tidy (unlike the kids at the party...)!
These are also great for get togethers where there are lots of kids. I make the blox (separately!) in a number of colors and then mix them all together in a large clear plastic bowl. Colorful AND fun for the kids (and all the rest of us!)
Hurray!!! Glad to know someone else remembers these yummy treats. And I agree, Jigglers don't even come close!!
