With little ones in my care at certain times of the week, we
have recently become a "Jell-O" home.
When they are here, they always ask to make more Jell-O.
With this being said, I wanted to make something for dessert, that would excite
them when they come for our Easter meal.
I took seven boxes of different flavors and colors, and went to work on
my simple project.
I took some of my old ice cream dishes, and some other old dishes and set them in a 9 x 13 inch
cake pan. I would take one box at a time and make it, and then pour a layer in the dishes. I would
place the pan of dishes in the refrigerator for 45 minutes, and then I would make the next layer,
and carefully pour on top of the previous layer.
It seems like this process would take forever, but it did not. Throughout the evening, I would
do each layer in between my other kitchen projects. I used one box of each flavor, and it made
all of these desserts.
As I was filling each one, I did not anticipate how good the layers would look in the unique glass
dishes. It almost looks like I did the colors according to the ridges in the glass dishes, but I didn't
do that, intentionally.
And, since they always ask for some of the "white stuff"(as they call it) on top, I will finish
each dessert with some whipped cream and a few colorful jelly beans.
One box filled each glass dish, and with the remainder of the Jell-O, I filled some jelly jars for
another time. So you can see, each box of Jell-O goes a long way in putting together this
fun, simple dessert.
I had to show you these two pictures from the boys stay here this past week. They were so happy
to make the Jolly Rancher flavor. They take the job quite seriously, as you can see by their
Our world is full of color, and because of it, the world is
far more beautiful.
Sometimes, I find myself taking it all for granted in my daily life, but think what our world would
be like without color.
This Easter weekend, I wish you lots of color, and time to recognize it
and enjoy it.
Thank you for stopping by!
Thank you to the Jell-O company for adding
enjoyment to our grandchildren's stays here.
As the name of my blog states, I truly offer only " a little something" here:)
