OK I know a lot of people make their own jello using fruit juice. We don’t always have a lot of extra juice and it is to expensive to buy just to make jello out of so I use Kool-Aid as I have mentioned before I buy a lot of kool-Aid when it on sale. If you use Kool-Aid to make jello with then you can have a large variety of flavors. I buy my gelatin in bulk ( At bulkfoods.com) so it is a lot cheaper then in the grocery store.
Jello with Kool-aid
2 Tablespoons gelatin
1 cup sugar
1 pack kool-Aid
4 cups water
Start with the kool-aid of choice, sugar, and gelatin.
Add 1 cup of sugar 2 Tablespoons of gelatin and 1 pack of kool-aid in a medium size bowl.
Mix together well
Add 2 cups of boiling water and stir well until everything is dissolved.
Add two cups cold water, I put ice in my water to help the jello set up faster.
stir until the ice is all melted.
put in the fridge to set up, takes about 2 hours.
If you want to make your own jello cups just pour into small reusable containers with lids then put into the fridge to set up.
and you have yummy jello.
If you want a little softer jello just don't add as much gelatin.
If you are going to use fruit juice just remember 4 cups liquid to 2 Tablespoons of gelatin.
