I don’t use Jello that often, but sometimes it makes a special treat. Some people can do Jello, some can’t, but if you can, these are a great snack that could easily be incorporated into a birthday party, class party, or any other celebrations that would involve fun food.
I found this recipe on the Kraft Food site, the original uses marshmallows, so it was easy to swap them out for the heavy cream. After a quick search, I found these all over the internet, I think the best example is this one. I love that they used all the colors to make it look festive. The most fun part about these, is the kids (or you;) can un-roll them and play with them a little. Kids are naturally silly, and this is a super kid friendly recipe. They will also sit out on a platter with no problem. It just cant be very hot or in the direct sun.
On Thursday morning, I leave for CHICAGO! I can hardly believe it is here already… I have finished packing and I am actually bringing more cooking supplies than clothes! I’m so excited to meet some of you on family day and super excited to share some of the recipes (bread is one of them) that I have been saving especially for the conference. If you are going to be there, please stop by and say hi!
about 23 calories per slice
makes about 16 slices
1 package (about 10g) Sugar Free Jello powder, any flavor is ok
89g 40% heavy cream
Set 2g of the Jello powder aside. Grease an 8×8 pan with any plain floavor oil (not coconut oil). Make sure all the corners have been lightly coated with the oil.
Heat the heavy cream in a small microwave safe bowl. The cream should be hot. Add 8g of the Jello powder to the cream and stir until it is completly dissolved.
Pour the cream into the pan and make sure it is covering the entire bottom of the pan. Put the pan into the refrigerator to allow the Jello to set up. Make sure the pan is on a level surface! The Jello will only take a few minutes to set up.
Heat the water in a small bowl until it is hot. Add the remaining 2g of Jello to the hot water and stir until it is all dissolved. Pour the water/Jello mixture over the cream layer. It will look very thin at the higher ratios. Make sure it covers the cream layer as evenly as possible. Return the pan to the refrigerator and allow the Jello to completely set up.
To remove the Jello, lift one edge with a scraper and begin to roll it up while it is still in the pan. When it is completely rolled, set it on a piece of plastic wrap and wrap it tightly. Return it to the refrigerator until you are ready to slice it. A knife worked fine for me. I cut it into 1/2 inch pieces and got about 16 slices.
For lower ratios, reduce the cream and replace it with the same amount of water. The total liquid should be about 1/2 cup.
For 4:1 ratio, it will be almost entirely cream for the liquid. This is fine, there will not be a 2 toned effect, just the “creamy” side.
