Halloween Treat – Boo-tiful Jello Cups

Okay Halloween has come and gone, so this won’t help you much in terms of ideas to use, but I wanted to share anyway because it was a quick and super easy recipe that was fun, fun, fun for the holiday!
Try modifying this with red or green jello and make snowman whip cream cuties!!!

I got this from the Kraft What’s Cooking Magazine – Fall 2010 edition

Boo-tiful Jello Halloween Treat

What You Need

3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (85 g) Jell-O Orange Jelly Powder
2 cups ice cubes
2/3 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping, divided
8 miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips ( I didn’t have a mini chocolate chips, so I used candy coated sunflower seeds, which oddly enough, I did happen to have on hand- so we have blue eyed ghosts)

Make It
ADD boiling water to jelly powder in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add ice; stir 3 to 5 min. or until jelly is thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Whisk in 1/3 cup Cool Whip until well blended. Pour into 4 dessert dishes. (ours are a little skimpy because we are a family of 5 and had to make it stretch!)

REFRIGERATE 30 min. or until firm.

DROP remaining Cool Whip by spoonfuls onto desserts to resemble ghosts. Add chocolate chips for the eyes
