Homemade Jello Fruit Snacks July 15, 2012

My girls love, love, love fruit snacks!  I saw this post for homemade jello fruit snacks and thought it would be fun for my girls and I to make together.  My 4-year-old helps me cook all the time, but this is the first time I let my 23 month old get into the action!  Molly really seemed to enjoy dumping the jello into the bowl and mixing!  Most of all, she enjoyed eating the fruit snacks.  This was a really fast recipe to make and fun, too!  The texture turned out to be fruit snack like and they tasted exactly like Jello (as expected).  I would be interested in making another homemade fruit snack recipe that isn’t Jello flavored.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Jello; however, I don’t really like my fruit snacks tasting like Jello.  I will definitely make these for the girls again!

Rainbow Jello for St. Patrick’s Day March 18, 2012

I thought this was so pretty and perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day project.  And oh boy, it was a time-consuming project.  I started the purple jello (bottom layer) at 9am.  The entire thing was ready to eat at 7:30pm.  I probably could have done it faster, but errands, making lunch, other fun projects got in the way of staying on track.  I will say though that you have to be on the ball to get this thing done in one day!  And, make sure to use the quick method (use ice) when making the jello.  The kids loved it!  My 19 month old devoured it!  It was fun to taste all the flavors.  My four year old liked “blue” the best!
