When it comes to Halloween goodies, I usually stick to the stuff that’s prepped in the store.
That probably sounds weird, considering all the culinary creations I’ve made.
But I swear to you, when it comes to the finer points of decorative desserts, I am all thumbs.
I’ll tell you, I was really excited about making these JELL-O JIGGLERS. I rolled up my proverbial sleeves (because duh, it’s still too hot in Phoenix for sleeves) and dove right in…to disaster.
Seriously, I failed so hard at making JELL-O JIGGLERS it should be a crime.
My husband made fun of me relentlessly, and I used the experience to help my friends cheer up, because no one fails at JELL-O. It’s impossible.
After three days and four attempts, I finally accomplished my goal.
Did I even use that analogy correctly? Did I just fail at language and grammar too?
They are cute (I mean, Spooky!) little Frankenstein JIGGLERS, and as I looked at them and thought, wouldn’t it be awesome to do Brides of Frankenstein?
1 Pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Grape Flavored Gelatin
1/4 C (1/2 Pkg.) JELL-O Lime Flavored Gelatin
1 Tube White Decorating Gel
Well, each time I screwed up, I had this huge pile of broken JELL-O all over the counter. I was so frustrated that I just pushed it all towards the waiting fingers of my daughters, who essentially dove into the mix like a pack of wild animals, with all the sounds included.
My neighbor has a little girl around the same age as my kids, so I let the girls put a few JIGGLERS on a plate and bring them to her, much to her delight!
