Does anyone else remember these from our childhood? My nephew just turned 1, and I was given the honor of planning the party. We went with a “Under The Sea” theme… More on that later….
One of the food ideas I came up with was Jello Jigglers! I liked this idea because a few of nephews friends have allergies to dairy and eggs and Jello has neither! Also, it seemed like something that a one year old could eat without a lot of assistance.
Plus, they are really easy to make!
Simply pick a flavor (I ended up making 4 different flavors… I had LOTS of Jigglers for the party!)
Then buy 4 boxes of that flavor.
Boil 2-1/2 cups of water and add it to the jello powder. Stir it up so that the powder dissolves. (DONT add cold water). Then pour it into a 9×13 glass pan and put it in the fridge.
After about 4 hours, pull it out of the fridge and break out the cookie cutters!
Cut out your favorite shapes
and remove the excess jello (I put it in a bowl for me to snack on later!)
And you are left with a fun shaped snack!
