I swear gelatin is in again. Good thing I have all these vintage molds to use! But you don’t need a vintage mold to make a fun fruity snack to enjoy this past time. All you need is a little orange and lemon rind.
Needless to say, these treats are perfect for kiddies, or for bringing to a potluck where kids will be present.
JELL-O Fruit Wedges
- 3 oranges
- 3 lemons
- 1 package lemon gelatin mix
- 1 package orange gelatin mix
Half the fruit and remove the flesh, being very careful not to pierce through the skin (otherwise the JELL-O will leak out!). Set fruit halves in muffin tray so they are held still.
Make JELL-O according to package instructions, but not chilling. Using a ladle, carefully pour orange JELL-O liquid into oranges and lemon liquid into the lemons. Chill JELL-O for at least 4 hours, or until firm.
Cut into wedges and serve!
Aren’t these fun? Love them!
Enjoy, friends! xoxo
I’ve seen these…even done in rainbow colors…and I want to make them. Perhaps I should treat my inner child?
Yes! I’ve seen watermelon ones in a lime rind. So fun!
Were these hard to slice?
Not at all, actually! Just use a sharp knife and the JELL-O sticks right to the fruit. They melt easily, though!
Wondering if this would be good with a water melon.
That would be a big endeavor! I have wanted to make little watermelons with raspberry JELL-O and lime rinds.
