Wow, aftering reading all the Tweets on Twitter from the fantastic Food bloggers I am following I feel rather simple……..blogging about Jello!
But this post is all business!
It is………. really!
If you know me, you know I love to play with my food!
Being a foodie with some creative skills can get me into all sorts of fun!
And what is more fun then Jello!
When I announced I was doing a Jello photohshoot, I must tell you, the responce was quite interesting! Many of my friends have some very…wandering minds if I may put it so delicately.
Karen & Sandra….yes, I am talking about you! Between the handcuffs and chocolate body paint, it made for some great conversation! (sick women….need to find some hobbies there girlfriends!!!) and I need to find some normal friends…….
Now I have seem many cool blog posts on Jello!
Its cheap. Its easy.
Everyone loves it!
And it makes for some great photographs!
Okay, without further ado……..I present
I was pretty jazzed by how it turned out!
Have you ever heard of Sea Glass? I had to google it. As I am a Rocky Mountain loving Prairie girl, I had no idea what this stuff was. But I had heard of the jello, you know, Sea Glass Jello. Very pretty and I managed to get a slice that had the colors of it.
And I had heard of Broke Glass jello, it looks like stained glass windows!
I made some Jello Sensations!
Little coloful gems of giggly love! They are super easy to make and the color combinations are endless!
boxes 4 small of Jello in your favorite flavors
2 envelopes of Knox gelatin
1 can of sweetend condensed milk
2 cups of water
Prepare the Jello in 4 seperate containers using the recipe for Jello Jigglers that is printed on the box.
Let set for four hours.
I did slightly spray my pans for easier removal of the Jello. A very quick dunk in hot water also helps release the Jello from the container.
Using a sharp knife cut the Jello into cubes and place in a 9 x 13 pan.
In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool to room temperature. Pour cooled milk mixture over jello and chill overnight.
Cut into cool shapes and enjoy!
