If you asked my kids they would tell you that Halloween is one of their favorite holidays. They love everything about it. The pumpkins, costumes, and of course the candy. (Who doesn’t like candy!) As they are getting older I am trying to find more creative ways to celebrate the holidays with them. This year I decided to make MMMMonsters JIGGLERS with JELL-O. When it comes to baking and crafts things have to be pretty simply for me. So when I saw this I thought it was perfect!
Things You Need:
- 1 2/3 Cups Boiling Water (it will be divided)
- 1 pkg (30z) JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin
- 1/4 cup (1/2 of 3oz pkg.) JELL-O Grape Flavor Gelatin
- 32 Pieces Red String Licorice (1/2 inch)
- 1 Tube Black Decorating Gel
- 24 Plastic Shot Glasses
Spray 24 (1 oz) shot glasses with cooking spray. Add 1 1/3 cups boil water to lime gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. (Do Not Add Cold Water!) Refrigerate 12-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.
MEANWHILE, add remaining 1/3 cups boiling water to grape gelatin mix in small bowl, stir 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Spoon about 1 1/4 tsp into each shot glass. Let set stand 5 minutes.
Spoon lime gelatin over grape gelatin in glasses. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.
Unmold JIGGLERS onto tray just before serving. Insert 2 licorice pieces into opposite sides of JIGGLERS for the neck bolts. Decorate with gel to resemble monsters shown in the picture.
Doesn’t this look like a ooey gooey scary monster?
Overall, I am pleased with MMMMonster JELL-O JIGGLER. It was pretty easy to make except for adding the face. It took several attempts for me to even get the eyes to stick. Once the stuck and I started to make the mouth the eyes were sliding down. It just wasn’t working out as I thought. I actually thought that would be the easiest part and it turn out to be the hardest. I think I might have used a bit too much spray in the cups. Will I try it again? YES! My kids really enjoyed helping making the monsters. It was the first time we attempted to do anything with the JELL-O besides eating out of the bowl. They thought it was the neatest thing that we could make something out of JELL-O. They were very yummy. They were perfect “Trick or Treat” Snacks that will have all the neighbor hood kids coming. In the end the kids had fun and were happy and that’s what matters the most!

Those are definitely cute! We try to make something new each Halloween and I cringe because mine never turns out like the picture. Since we love jello these look easy enough that even I can’t mess them up.
