Patriotic Jello Jigglers

I have always had this complex love-hate relationship with jello-jigglers.  

Here is why, what to do with the leftover jello after the shapes have been cut out.

But here I am once again making them, because I think they are so cute and festive and 

well fun and they make me smile.

Fun and smiling are good and so are these happy little hearts and stars which just 

symbolize the 4th of July in the most perfect way.

So, here is the recipe and a cute way to serve them up.

So, do you want to know what I did with the left over jello?

I chopped it up in neat little cubes, put it in a super pretty dessert dish and topped it with

whip cream and a bright red cherry and served it to the hubby.

He was happy and my love-hate relationship over jello jigglers is over.

I now, just love them...

I think adults might even like these berry flavored jigglers served on top of marshmallows 

and I just bet that a dollop of sweet whip cream would make this extra tasty and except for 

the whip cream, virtually calorie free.

Wanted to share these today, so if you need an extra nifty colorful and simple dessert to

spruce up your Patriotic table this could be it.

They carry quite a punch with their vibrant color.

Just add some colorful table cloths, place mats and serve these jello jiggler desserts in

a cute dessert dish or cup and you are ready for your 4th of July festivities!

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. Good morning my friend!!!!! You are getting READY for some fun! Will you be serving these goodies at home this year, with the family gathering there? I hope that whatever you do, you will make a memorable 2016 fourth of July. Fun food is part of those memories, so these colorful goodies will surely be a hit. The girls, how ADORABLE is this photo of them!

    Well my friend, here we go, unspooling out of summer, but NOT YET, right? I haven't even accomplished all that I hoped to do, but baby steps are being taken. I wish you all the success you hope for in your ventures this summer!
