Jell-O Easter eggs. Yes, it sounds unusual, but when you see it in action for yourself, it may just make your to-do list this spring.
Jell-O is one of those timeless desserts that has been around for longer than most of us can remember. Perhaps you have enjoyed some Jell-O as a dessert when you were a youngster or perhaps you have tried making some interesting creations, such as Knox Blocks or adding fruit to a Jell-O mold. It just seems as if Jell-O is one of the more versatile treats that we have at our disposal, so it’s not surprising that it would make the jump over to Easter eggs.
Cindy McCune is a social media user who shared her interesting creation on Facebook. It was a version of deviled Jell-O Easter eggs. Yes, it sounds unusual, but when you see it in action for yourself, it may just make your to-do list this spring.
Making these colorful and edible eggs is a lot easier than you might think. All you need is some Jell-O (any flavor will do), some whipped cream and a deviled egg holder. McCune goes through the simple steps in her post:
It doesn’t matter what age you are, you are sure to love this Easter egg treat. After all, it is more than deliciously sweet, you don’t have all of the mess with boiling eggs, working with dye, and then wondering what to do with all those hard-boiled eggs after Easter is over. Leftovers are not going to be a problem with these Jell-O Easter eggs!
Amazon may even make it easier by offering some egg shaped molds. Or you may want to try using some actual egg shells with the instructions from Just a Taste.
This isn’t the first time that Jell-O has been used to create something interesting for Easter. There have been some creative individuals who have even pulled off some multicolored eggs that are almost too beautiful to eat. They do take more time, but then again, we seem to have a lot of time on her hands at the moment.
