Jell-O Fish Bowl Fun

I know summer is winding down, but I figured with the upcoming Labor Day holiday, this would be a cute party treat to serve your littlest guests. I found this tear pad recipe on a Kraft display a few months ago. Since then, it has been a big hit with my kids!

Jello Fishbowl Snack


3/4 c boiling water
1 pkg (3oz) Jell-O Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin
ice cubes
1/2 c cold water
1/2 cup Nilla Wafers, coarsely chopped
20 mini marshmallows, cut in 1/2
12 to 15 Swedish Fish


Add boiling water to gelatin mix in medium bowl. Stir 2 minutes, until completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to cold water to measure 1 1/4 cups. Add to gelatin. Stir until water slightly thickens. Remove any unmelted ice. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes, or until set but not firm. Stir gelatin quickly to create "bubbles."

Place chopped cookies and marshmallows in 4 clear plastic cups. Cover with gelatin.

Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm. Top with candies just before serving.
