Do you like jello? My Valentine is crazy about it. It seams we are always buying the snack packs or I am boiling water to make his favorite treat. I had to banish him from the kitchen until I could get the pictures for this post. He even told me he was going to go buy some chocolate and tell me I couldn’t eat it so I would know what he was going through!
Let’s make jello hearts for Valentine’s Day!
Since Jell-O is one of Alan’s favorites, I wanted to make something a little more than Jell-O squares for Valentine’s Day and hearts seemed appropriate.
I saw these Jell-O Fire Crackers and followed the video to make these but, instead of using cute little cups, I decided to use Strawberry Jell-O and layer it in a 9′ x 13″ baking pan. My pan had rounded edges on the bottom and I wished I had used a pan like this one with nice sharp corners but, I had a lot of volunteers to eat the scraps so it all worked out.
Pour 1 cup of the Strawberry Jell-O into your pan and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Remove from refrigerator and gently pour 1 cup of unflavored gelatine mixture over the chilled Strawberry Jell-O. Place it in the refrigerator and chill for 15 minutes.
Repeat. Mine made 7 layers. Just be sure you end with the strawberry on top.
Leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until firm. Place bottom of pan in some warm water for a few seconds to help the Jell-O release from the pan and dump it onto a platter and cut with cute cookie cutters.
Do you want to know something crazy? My husband doesn’t eat sugar cookies! He doesn’t like them. I KNOW!! He has never tasted one of my cookies. Good thing I met him before I got obsessed with them or my life could have been totally different. Could I actually marry a man that didn’t eat sugar cookies??
Since he makes my heart jiggle, I will keep him!
