I tried my hand at making Jell-O oranges today. I got the idea here on Pinterest. Mine didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as the ones I found on Pinterest, but I’m sure with practice I could get better at it. I’m not sure when I’ll make these again though since only one of my kids was excited about them. Trenton touched the Jell-O once with his finger, and immediately decided that he didn’t like it. Charlotte on the other hand, loved her Jell-O oranges! I had to hold them for her because I’m sure that she would have tried to eat the peel as fast as she was sucking the Jell-O down!
To make the oranges, I cut three oranges in half, hollowed them out, and set the six orange halves in a muffin tin.
I mixed up a batch of Jell-O and poured it in the hollowed out orange halves. One box of Jell-O was more than enough to fill all six halves. I even had a little left over. The muffin tin was a great way to keep the oranges steady and also collected any Jell-O overflow.
Put the muffin tin in the refrigerator to set the Jell-O for 4-6 hours. Once Jell-O is set, cut oranges into slices and enjoy!
