How to Use JELL-O Egg Molds

Save

Expand your repertoire of all things egg by using a JELL-O egg mold to make jiggly gelatin eggs. Whether it's Easter, Mardi Gras, Halloween or no special holiday at all, using JELL-O egg molds is a simple way to introduce different flavors, colors and games to kids of all ages. You can make solid color eggs, layer colored gelatin to create rainbow eggs or put a tasty surprise in the middle of each egg. Just prepare the egg molds before use for the best results.

Things You'll Need

  • Cooking oil spray
  • Vegetable oil
  • Paper towel
  • Cookie sheet
  • Gelatin
  • Measuring cup
  • Boiling water
  • Spoon
  • Butter knife
  • Bowl
  • Spray the interior and rims of the JELL-O egg molds with vegetable oil spray or put a small amount of vegetable oil on a paper towel and swab the interior and rims of the egg molds. The oil allows the egg to slide out of the mold after the gelatin has set.

  • Close each egg mold; one mold makes six eggs. Every mold will make six snapping sounds as it is locked.

  • Put the egg molds on a cookie tray or platter.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups boiling water with 1 package of gelatin in a measuring cup. Stir the mixture thoroughly; it will take approximately 3 minutes for the dry gelatin to dissolve in the water.

  • Pour the gelatin through the mold's fill-hole, which is located on the top of each egg. To make solid eggs pour one color of gelatin into the mold until the mixture reaches the bottom of the fill-hole. If you want to place a piece of fruit in the center of the egg or make a two-toned egg, pour the gelatin to the area where the two molds are sealed. Let the gelatin begin to set before adding the different color or putting a piece of fruit in the egg mold and pouring the rest of the gelatin in the mold.

  • Put the filled egg molds in the refrigerator for about 3 hours to allow the gelatin to set.

  • Pry the two haves of the egg mold apart, carefully around each egg shape. The Kraft website warns users to avoid pulling on the handles on the egg mold.

  • Dump the eggs out of the egg mold into a bowl.
