I made a few different flavors and they were all delicious, creamier versions of jello. They were really easy to make too!
Here's what you need for each batch:
- 6 oz box of Jello, any flavor (or two of the smaller 3 oz boxes)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
Here's what to do:
1. Add your two cups of boiling water to the jello powder and stir until dissolved.
2. Add 2 cups of vanilla ice cream and stir until all the ice cream has melted into the jello mixture.
3. Pour into individual cups (or any kind of larger mold) and refrigerate. A creamier layer will rise to the top as it settles and cools.
For my mock beakers, I just used a Sharpie to draw lines and numbered markings on a plain, clear plastic cup. (Obviously, these aren't to scale at all and the numbers have nothing to do with actually measuring the Jello!) However, I think they looked fairly realistic once filled.
At our Science party, I set them out on a tray with a little sign. They looked cute and the kids really enjoyed them.
I'm so glad I came across this recipe for Ice Cream Jello. It was a hit for our party, but easy enough that I definitely plan on making them again just for snacks.
