I enjoy making treats (of course, sometimes I enjoy eating them too much!). For Valentine's Day treats can come in all forms, but frequently, there is a heart or chocolate involved.
This year, once again, I made finger jello and cut it out as hearts for my daughter's Valentine's Day party. It really is rather simple to make. What I can't quite figure out is why the Jello box doesn't have a recipe for it - they have Jigglers, but those are just made with less water - and the Knox Gelatin box doesn't have a recipe for it - they have Knox Squares made with fruit juice, but neither have the recipe that I remember from my childhood with Jello and Knox.
Finger Jello 2 large Jello (or 4 small) 4 packets Knox Gelatin 4 c Boiling Water
Mix together, pour in pan and let set. Once set, use a cookie cutter to cut out in the desired shape.
I also saw an idea where you make four different colors of jello, stacked on each other. Mix 1 small pack Jello, 1 packet of Knox and 1 c Boiling Water. Pour in pan and allow to set, then do the next layer, repeat. When you are done, you will have a rainbow of finger jello, which sounds fun to me - maybe I will try that one at the Fourth of July and use some Blue and Red Jello for my layers.
Now, here is a link for Easy Cake Truffles, that I would like to make for myself. They sound so yummy and decadent.
I work full-time outside of the home, while being a full-time mom to
a 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter. I'm also a wife to my
husband of 13 years.
I started this blog shortly after I started CVS-ing. I was
reading about everyone's plans and successes, so I decided I wanted
someplace to share my money saving adventures. I'm working on adding
some regular "features" to the blog as well as continuing to share my
money saving adventures and participating in some recipe exchanges.
