I LOVE HALLOWEEN (and Jello)

3

So again I am sharing pictures that aren’t the best quality BUT oh well! I have been into Jello a bit lately and I made the coffee jello I found on this blog a few weeks ago. I ate almost all of it myself because I am also very into coffee! I really like the broken glass Jello and want to make that but yesterday I needed to do something in the Halloween spirit and used the condensed milk part of the recipe along with regular flavored Jello to make skulls and pumpkins. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to use orange tinted milk jello first in the pumpkin and then use the use the green melon Jello as the second/back layer (because the opaque green overpowered the translucent orange first layer the way I made it – when I do it with the opaque layer first next time they will look a lot better). For the condensed milk layers I mixed 2 knox packets in 1/2 cold water, waited a minute and then added 1 1/2 cups boiling water and a can of sweetened condensed milk. For the regular Jello I just used a  box of Jello  (the 4 serving size) mixed with 3/4 cup boiling water (basically the jiggler recipe). Oh I almost forgot my best idea: I use a huge syringe to get the Jello in the little molds without making any mess! So my Halloween Jellos don’t look pretty but they do look Halloweeny and I think they were pretty yummy! Another thing I almost forgot! I really really wanted to make these Jello blood worms but I didn’t have any straws!

    Love it! You are so creative! I also love Jello… but I want some creamy-ness too, so the addition of a milk layer sounds yummy. I’d like to say I’ll try this, but lets face it, I’m just not that motivated! LOL! Happy day before Halloween! <3

  2. What a fun Jello Halloween! And what a beautiful family you have. :) Glad you liked the coffee jello – it is pretty addictive! Happy Halloween – mary the food librarian
