Appetizers: Jiggly and Wiggly

We made these ones for the kids, but they were very pretty...and anyone who is young at heart will love them. I am not the biggest fan of Jell-O, but even I thought these were pretty good.

Sparkling Raspberry Jigglers


2 env. (1/4 oz. each) Knox Unflavored Gelatine
2 tbsp. sugar
2 cups carbonated lemon-lime soda
1 1/4 cups boiling water
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) Jell-O Raspberry Flavor gelating
1/4 cup cold water
36 fresh raspberries (about 1 1/3 cups), optional


Mix unflavored gelatine and sugar in medium microwaveable bowl until blended. Stir in soda. Let stand 3 minutes or until gelatine is softened. Microwave on high 3 minutes or until gelatine and sugar are dissolved, stirring after each minute. Pour into 8-inch square dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Refrigerate 25-30 minutes or until set, but not firm. Meanwhile, add boiling water to raspberry gelatin mixes in separate medium bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Cool 15 minutes.

Pour raspberry gelatin gently over clear gelatine layer in dish. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Cut into 36 squares; top with raspberries just before serving, if desired.

Recipe Notes: You can save calories and sugar per serving by preparing with diet carbonated lemon-lime soda and 2 pkg. (0.3 oz each) Jell-O Raspberry Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin and substituting 1 tbsp. granulated sugar substitute for the 2 tbsp. granulated sugar.

You can also prepare using any flavor of Jell-O Gelatin.

Notes: These were very pretty...and as I said, while I am not a huge fan of Jell-O, these were good and gobbled up by the masses quickly.

  1. The lemon lime soda and fresh raspberries gave it a fresher flavor. I keep trying jigglers, but for whatever reason none of the kids really end up being thrilled by them. Maybe time to try again....
