"This is the best finger gelatin recipe. I've been making it for many years. It's simple to make, and kids love it! You can be very creative for parties or events by using cookie cutters to cut the gelatin. Enjoy! Use your favorite flavor of gelatin mix."

This isn't a "gourmet" jello dish... It's simple and tasty. Kids have fun making shapes out of the jello with cookie cutters. You can cut down on the sugar without any problem. It's fun to make special shapes for holiday celebrations - something special just for the kids (and adults too)!
SO CUTE and YUMMY! The kids loved this cut out into shamrock shapes. My little guy is already planning what flavors/shapes we will do next, lol...too easy and fun! Thanks for sharing. :)
This is definitely the best jello recipe I've tried. Kid pleaser for sure!
I've always added the hot water to the mixing bowl, so this is the first time I've read about boiling it, and it worked like a charm. No need to add the sugar. I used 4 Knox gelatin packs, and it was fine, but next time I will add 5. I probably should have cut down on the water a little bit, but that just occurred to me now. Melting the Knox in cold water was new to me also; I used to add hot water to it, and it required mixing, and it seems to love cold water! I also added mandarin orange to my orange jello, and it set well. Turned out yummy!
We made this all the time when I was a kid, however the extra sugar is unnecessary though. Works great with sugar free jello also and a nice sweet treat if watching weight.
These came out great! I'm only giving it four stars though because I think 4 envelopes of gelatin instead of five would have been more than enough and the extra sugar is definitely not needed. My 3 year old had so much fun. making these and eating them. Thank you for the recipe!
fun easy cool
