Single Serving of Jell-O

"There is just the two of us, and a whole bowl of jell-o was just wasteful. I knew there had to be a way to make just a single serving from the dry mix, but didn't know what the ratio would be until I found it surfing the web. So for thoes of you who would like to know - here it is. I have also added the single serving of instant pudding as well. Cooking time is chill time for gelatin, the pudding is ready in 5 minutes."

    Laura, I'm so glad you shared this. I cook only for myself most of the time and enjoy gelatin occasionally. This is perfect for one meal. I like to drain a fruit cup and add to the slightly thickened gelatin, also. Haven't yet tried the pudding, but plan to soon. Thank you.

    I loved this, but mine seemed overly thick. I think I'll add more milk next time or decrease the tablespoons to 1 1/2 T of dry mix. Thanks for putting this up here! :)

<p>Married going on 28 years to a man who loves to eat, with two cats who approve of everything I do. Couldn't get luckier than that. <br /><br />I'm a secretary working for a social service agency serving mentally retarded adults. I have been there going on 30 years (as of February 2009), a challenging and rewarding line of work for the men and women who work in our day and residential programs, and I am proud to support them. <br /><br />I really enjoy finding and preparing new recipes, so when I found Zaar surfing the net I was hooked. My mother gave me the premium membership as a gift, and I couldn't be happier. <br /><br />I have some same ole, same ole recipes that you make when you have no time for inspiration, but I truly enjoy cooking new and different - so I rarely make the same thing twice. If you are invited to my home for dinner more than likely I have found a never tried recipe from Zarr and you are my Ginuea Pig. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but I'm never bored with cooking - which I think is the point. <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
