OK I know a lot of people make their own Jell-O using fruit juice. We don’t always have a lot of extra juice and it is to expensive to buy just to make Jell-O 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 Jell-O 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 than in the grocery store.
Jell-O 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 Jell-O set up faster, put ice in measuring cup and add water to equal 2 cups.
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 Jell-O cups just pour into small reusable containers with lids then put into the fridge to set up.
And you have yummy Jell-O.
If you want a little softer Jell-O 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.
