How gorgeous is this little dessert? It looks like magic, so if you want to impress kids, this is the right way to go about it: blend that visual va-va-voom with the yummy taste of perfectly ordinary Jell-O. ZakkaLife has a recipe and tutorial for making rainbow Jell-O:
When I asked my daughter what she wanted me to make for her class to celebrate her birthday, without hesitation she requested rainbow jello. How could I refuse? I myself had fond memories of having jello at school.
If this is a little too complicated for you, there are a lot of really simple ways to make Jello extra special:
- Pour Jello into cookie cutters or silicone molds to make “wigglers”
- Put sprinkles on top of Jello before it cools
- Arrange pieces of fruit inside the Jello while it’s cooling
- For the grownups: if you like sweet and salty, coarsely crush some pretzels or salted nuts and mix them evenly through the jello
