We stumbled upon some cool Halloween-themed ice cube trays and Nicholas asked me to get them so we could do some kind of neat Halloween project with them. He didn’t have a plan for them but he knew we would come up with something, and we did!

We decided to make some spooky Jello jigglers with just the basic jiggler recipe from the box.

our experience making spooky jello jigglers

I did learn that you can buy molds designed for Jello at the Kraft Jello website.   They have lots of fun holiday-themed molds available.

I found that sometimes the detailed features of our jigglers would stick to the mold and therefore the jigglers would tear a little when it popped out. Despite some of the jigglers tearing up a little, most of them came out fine.

Our jigglers came out really cool and the whole family really enjoyed chowing down on them. I only regret that I didn’t think to put some gummy worms in the mold.

Skulls with worms inside. Ewww!

Yield: 5-6 shaped molds
