Last week we had some friend over for lunch, and I decided to make a kid friendly dessert.  Ryan's mom had made this jell-o when Nate was sick over Christmas, and I tried my hand at it.  It worked great!  For this recipe I doubled it (made 2 different flavors), and over half stayed in the fridge for us to eat after the event.  Nate was very sad when it was finished off!

2 small packages jell-o (3 oz) or 1 large package (6 oz)
1 1/2 envelopes Knox gelatin
2 1/2 cups boiling water

  1. Mix both gelatins in a bowl.
  2. Add boiling water and stir until dissolved.
  3. Place in an 8x8 or larger pan (the larger the pan, the thinner the jell-o).
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge until firm.
  5. Remove from fridge and place bottom of pan in warm water to ease in jell-o removal.
  6. Prior to serving, you can cut into squares or use a cookie cutter for more interesting shapes.
