"This is a fun and different way to make jello for the kids."
Serving Size: 1 (24 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"i used sugar free jello and it worked just fine. only took about 30mins to set, sprayed the pan w/ pam and i folded the first bit and held it there a few seconds for it to stick. then they rolled right up and didn't stick to the dish at all. i only cut it into 6 pieces, 12 seemed a bit small. the kids are excited for desert now, maybe they'll actually eat their dinner w/o me having to fuss at them! i'll probably 2x or 3x the recipe next time. maybe the sugar free doesn't make quite as much? doesn't matter though, i refuse to give my kids all that extra sugar."
"love these pinwheels. I'm just wondering my marshmallows aren't as fluffy as in in the picture."
"It was easy to make but me and my family could taste the non stick spray. Also, it tasted bland"
"i was so excited to make these because they are so cute and we love jello, but they were WAY to sweet for us. even the kids only ate one."
"I made these for my son's 1st birthday party. Mine did not come out as pretty as the pictures on here for sure. The children at the party seemed to like them, as well as the adults. I used sugar free jello. I had problems rolling my jello up, no matter what I tried, it stuck to the pan and that is probably what caused mine to look so rumpled. I would make it again for sure though."
"I tried these out on my family and everyone loved them. They were pretty easy to make the only fall back I had about them was that you really need multiple boxes of each flavor in order to get enough of them to pass around. I used parchment paper because I didn't have anything else and it worked ok but was still a bit difficult to roll up off the paper."
"This is a very cute idea! I thought all my kids would love it, but not all of them did. I will keep trying with different flavors. Red and blue jellos for the 4th of July will be a great idea for the kids. Thanks for sharing."
"great idea! I only had a cup of mini marshmallows and they still came out great."
"YUMMY! Used by fav gelatin - black cherry(sugar-free). Reduced the miniature marshmallows to 3/4 cup. I lined the pan with plastic wrap so it was very easy to remove from the pan, and to roll. Kept it rolled in the plastic wrap in fridge for a couple of hours. Used hot knife to make slicing easier. I can't have much in the way of "sweet" desserts so this is a treat for me. Thanks for posting."
"I can't believe I forgot to rate these. My kids love these, especially my 3 yr old. They did stick to the plate after a couple of hours in the fridge. My kids could care less they still loved them. Great recipe, thanks for posting!"
"My kids loved these! I made these for them tonight and my 7 yr olds eyes lit up when he saw them. I'm going to make 2 more batches tomorrow for the 4th of July in red and blue. Perfect for the kids at g'mas house. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us."
"These are fun! I prepared this on stove top, under low heat, rather than microwaveing it."
"My kids love these, as well as the kids at my daughters school. A great alternative to fruit snacks or fruit roll ups. I have made blue rapsberry and lime. The mini marshmallows melt more evenly than the large, but it worked great with either. I lined my pan with Reynolds Release alumminum foil and the Jello lifted right off."
"A great recipe! I made these for a quick snack for my DD's and now they are begging to take this to school for their next snack day! The wax paper made this recipe effortless."
"I just served this out of the pan and that was pretty fun in itself. I used Wild Strawberry jello and the pink stars out of the package of Holiday Kraft Marshmallows. I figured 2 stars would add up to the 12 large marshmallows. The jello bottom is jiggler consistency. I see how this holds together after being rolled because the marshmallow top to a little sticky. I will definitely have to find the time to roll this when I make it next. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game"
"I'm in my fifties and I thought these were fun. Definitely a kid friendly recipe. The wax paper suggestion from Susie in Texas really helps."
"Ok so the first time I tried this I used sugar free jello. That did not work! There aren't as many ounces in the sugar free so I had to convert the rest of the recipe and it was definitely not what it was supposed to be. So I just tried it again and it was great! I did not use sugar free this time and everything was perfect! Thanks!!"
"This is a great idea, and the only reason i'm not giving it any stars is because of a mistake i made. I'm guessing you have to let the marshmallow rise to the top BEFORE you let the jello set. The marshmallow never rose to the top for me. I'll try this again soon though!"
"These are fantastic! Absolutely simple, so quick to make and a real conversation piece at the table. Thank you so much for sharing!"
