This recipe turned out so well! I tripled the recipe but When i went to the store they only had 2 berry Jell-O packets left and i had to substitute one grape and they were really amazing and a hit at the 4th of July party i took them to. Everyone commented on how cute and delicious they were , but I think next year i will add alcohol as well! Very easy and very fun.
