Fourth of July JELL-O Jigglers | One To Nothin'

Fourth of July JELL-O Jigglers

Fourth of July JELL-O Jigglers. Jigglers feels weird. That's a weird word, right? Is it even actually a word? I can't stop thinking of boobs. Besides JELL-O and boobs, what jiggles? I guess my thighs do. Anyway. Now that I've got the jiggling out of my head and onto this blog, how's it going? I've missed y'all. Life, much like 'jiggler' is strange as hell lately.
Updates: I have a new roommate moving in next week, I'm heading to LA this weekend for my BFF's bachelorette party, I have a billion crafting projects to finish before then, I'm currently battling the gnarliest 3-week sinus infection, I stubbed my toe 15 times already this week, I'm totally torn on how I want to make money starting in October and this is the longest sentence in America.
Speaking of America, let's celebrate our independence (since we don't have much else to celebrate here recently..) with some corn syrup and gelatin, shall we?
Here's what you need:
A 6oz box of blue JELL-O
A 6oz box of red JELL-O
2 3oz packets of KNOX unflavored gelatin
1 1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk, divided (or regular for you non-lactose intolerants)
1/4 c sugar
Star cookie cutter
3 same-size pans (bigger for thinner, smaller for thicker)

Directions:
Bring 1 1/4 cup water to a boil and add blue JELL-O. Stir until it's dissolved - about three minutes. Pour into one of the pans and repeat with the red JELL-O, pouring it into a separate pan. Let them set in the fridge. Next mix unflavored gelatin with 1/4 cup almond milk and mix, let set for five minutes. Bring 1 cup almond milk to a boil, remove from heat and add sugar until dissolved. Now combine both almond milk mixtures and let cool for 10 minutes. Pour it into a new pan and put it in the fridge. Let them all refrigerate for about three hours and once they're firm, use your star cookie cutter to create an equal number of stars in each pan. To make removal easier, you can dip the bottom of the pan in warm water for about 15 seconds and use a spatula to get under each star. Layer the stars on top of each other and take a shit ton of photos, uh, I mean, serve.
If you're anything like me, you won't have any smaller sized star cookie cutters, so you'll cut out deformed ones and love them all the more for their imperfections. They're cute though, right? Unfortunately adding booze will likely ruin any chance of them getting firm enough for cookie cutters, but if you're willing to try it, please do let me know how it goes. I would like nothing more than to eat vodka JELL-O stars on the Fourth of July.

What are you doing to celebrate this weekend?

  1. I really wish I had my life together enough to make holiday-themed snacks, but at least I have a friend who does! You give me hope for the future.
