Well it is that time of the year. Time to create treats and snacks in the kitchen for the upcoming holidays. The first one is one of my favorite holidays - HALLOWEEN!!! Something that I am really looking forward to now that Jude is older is making memories in the kitchen. I have recently found a love for baking and cooking and trying new recipes which is great for us as a family, especially when Jude wants to help.
I was trying to find a fun weekend craft or recipe for Halloween and I found some great recipes for JELL-O JIGGLERS. I was very excited to try the MMMMonster JIGGLERS but after I showed Jude, he told me they were too scary. Well okay kid...so we went a different route. A route that wasn't crazy creative but it was crazy fun and messy! What 3 year old doesn't love that???
So the fun began! Jude was telling our neighbor all about our spooky JIGGLER treats that were being made! This meant we had to share our creations when they were done - Lucky neighbor right??
I decided to make this more of a craft than a recipe. I broke out some purple, green, black and orange frosting and let the creative juices flow. Jude had a great time decorating his JELL-O JIGGLERS. Not to mention he loved sneaking bites of his bats, pumpkins, ghosts and spiders!
I think my favorite one was the spider! Hehehe! Watch out!! Spider JELL-O JIGGLERS!!!
Why not make this a family tradition just like decorating Christmas Cookies in December. These JELL-O JIGGLERS are easy to make and yummy but the shapes really make me feel like we jumped right into the Halloween spirit just right. Perfect weekend activity for all ages. One more memory and tradition started. I love that. Brings a smile to my face.
So does this:
I think most of the frosting ended up on his face, hands and arms. Oh well! He was so happy when he finally got to eat one of his finished master pieces!
Check out what the neighbors are getting! A plate full of Halloween Spiders and Pumpkins! Yummy!!
Family Moments can be created just as easily as a JELL-O JIGGLER can be decorated! Enjoy and jump in!
