Cranberry Jello Jigglers

Last week, Maressa's preschool class had their little Thanksgiving party.  I made mini pumpkin muffins with this pumpkin bread recipe and these cranberry jello jigglers.

To make your own flavored jello jigglers you just need the flavor juice you want and unflavored gelatin.  I used cranberry cherry juice to make these.  Pour 1 C cold juice in a bowl and add 4 envelopes of gelatin and leave for a minute.  Bring 3 C of juice to boil in a pan and pour over the other juice and gelatin in the bowl.  Use a whisk to stir briskly but carefully until all the gelatin is dissolved.  Spray a 9X13 pan with Pam or the like and pour gelatin mixture in pan.  Refrigerate for a few hours until completely set.  You can now use cookie cutters to make shapes of your gelatin.  I made these mini leaf jigglers and the kids just loved them!

Thinking I might have to make a new batch for Thanksgiving!

This is a great idea. If I can get back to the store for gelatin before Thursday, I will definitely make them.
