I love making jello jigglers for St. Patrick's Day. They are so easy to make, are easily made green, and my boys love them.
This year I decided to make striped jello blocks. You do have to plan ahead and refrigerate each layer until firm before adding the next layer, but otherwise this is a simple undertaking.
Simply make the jello jiggler style in layers. For each 3 oz. box of jello add 1/2 cup plus 2 T. boiling water. Dissolve then pour into pan to make a layer. I made very thin layers on the bottom that you can't see because they just blended together. I made a green layer, then a green/blue layer mixing a box of green jello with a box of blue jello. Unfortunately the two colors are so much alike that you cannot see a difference. I suggest using two boxes of jello with 1 & 1/4 cup boiling water for each layer to get about a 1/4 inch color stripe, less for a thinner stripe. To get a white layer, I dissolved 4 packets of unflavored knox gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water then added 1 1/4 cup boiling coconut milk and 2 T. monk fruit sweetener (use any sweetener you like, more or less to taste). I then made a light green by mixing unflavored knox gelatin made with water with a box of lime jello.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
