Jell-O Jigglers

Jell-O Jigglers

Makes 150 1" [2.5 cm] cubes

These are not really a candy, but they are a Christmastime favorite with the kids (and adults alike!).  For other occasions, simply use the flavors and colors you like best.  For those in Ireland or England, Jell-O is the American brand name for what you call jelly (flavored, colored gelatin), commonly sold in concentrated blocks. If you have only the powdered version available, use the quantities under “American Products.”

The Jell-O will be layered Red, Orange, Green.
Prepare a 10" x 15" [25 cm x 38 cm] pan by lining it with plastic wrap (use 2 pieces & overlap pieces of wrap to seal).
Lightly oil plastic using a pastry brush or paper towel.
Add ounce [14 grams] unflavored gelatin to 1 cup [250 ml] cold water. Stir to dissolve.
Boil 2 cups [500 ml]water in a 4 cup [1 liter] measuring glass in microwave (about 4 minutes).
Add the package of Red Jell-O to 2 cups [500 ml] boiling water and mix well.
Add the dissolved gelatin to the liquid Jell-O and mix well.
Add ice cubes until liquid comes up to the 4 cup [1 liter] mark. Stir until ice is melted. Pour into prepared pan.
Refrigerate 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Repeat above instructions with Orange Jell-O.
When poring into pan, place large spoon (bowl side up) about 1" [2.5 cm] above Jell-O.
Pour warm Jell-O into bowl of spoon, allowing Jell-O to spread into pan.
This will sufficiently disperse the force so you won't pour a hole into the previous layer. Refrigerate 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Repeat the above with Green Jell-O, adding teaspoon [2.5 ml] green food coloring, if desired. This will deepen the intensity to match the depth of the Red Jell-O.
Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Invert pan onto plastic-lined tray and carefully lift pan off Jell-O.
Holding onto the plastic on the tray, gently pull the tray away, leaving the plastic & Jell-O on the cutting board.
Remove top piece of plastic wrap.
(If another person is available, you can lift the Jell-O out of the pan using the plastic wrap. Set on board.)
Using a large chef's knife, cut Jell-O into blocks about 1" x 1" [2.5 cm x 2.5 cm]. Or use cookie cutters if you have tall ones.
If not using immediately, stack into rectangular containers, placing a layer of plastic wrap between layers.
Refrigerate until serving time. You can make these well ahead of time as they keep in the refrigerator several weeks (if you don’t have little elves that can find them!).
