Looking for a party snack that will win a lot of people over?
Here’s a fun way to prepare Jell-0 that’s easier than you’d think. It all starts with pouring water into a pot.
Then, add the Jell-O powder.
It can be whatever flavor you wish, but bright colors produce some of the best results — you’ll see why, later.
The trick with this is continuously stirring it.
You want to stir until the consistency feels thick, but don’t overcook it.
Now the fun can really begin.
And like many fun things, this involves bubble wrap. Lay the bubble wrap on the table and fill the syringe (you can get them in baking/cooking stores) with the Jell-O liquid.
Now it's time to play doctor.
Fill up each of the individual bubbles with a bit of the Jell-O mixture.
Here's an up close view of what the process looks like.
It takes awhile, but it seems like kind of a soothing thing to do. It also produces something pretty cool.
Now it's time to put them in the fridge.
Usually Jell-O takes just a few hours to solidify.
When they're done, take them out are start popping!
You can break your Jell-O gummies free with your hand or using a needle.
What's left over are tiny Jell-O gummies that are easy to eat.
And they’re also pretty fun to play with. For adult parties, you could even add a bit of booze to the mix.
Put them on a plate or in a bowl to serve.
You could also serve a handful in individually sized cups. All that’s left to do is enjoy!
