Valentine's Juice Jigglers

I wish I was a better photographer or even a better cook. These would look so cute if I could get them to square off and set on the plate smartly. 

It did not matter to Maurene, she still loved making them. The girls also loved eating them. I was a little uncertain as they have turned their noses up to Jello before. This is the first time I have made anything from scratch instead of using a pre-flavored box. It was a success! You should try this for a fun Valentine's treat. Maybe you will have better luck making Jiggler Squares.

Juice Jigglers
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 4 cups juice
  • 2 cups cut up fruit
Pour gelatin into a pan and add 1 cup juice. Let set for 2 minutes so the gelatin can plump. Add remaining juice and heat on medium for about 6 minutes or until gelatin is clear. I used cherry juice so I just cooked for the 6 minutes. Place in a bowl and set in the fridge for 1 hour, stirring every 5-10 minutes. Add fruit after gelatin is set up a bit and pour into a 8 x 8 dish. Chill for 4 hours or overnight. Serve and enjoy!
