Growing up, my family called these, “knox blox”. Today, my kids love these fun jello shapes. I like them because they are easy, the possibilities are limitless, and can be made the day ahead.
- 2 packages of Knox Gelatin
- 1 box of grape flavored jello gelatin- 6 oz size
- 1 box of strawberry flavored jello gelatin- 6 oz size
- water and ice
Pour grape flavored jello and one package of knox gelatin in 9×13 pan. Stir. Heat 2 cups of water to boiling. Pour the water on the jello and mix until dissolved. Add 1/2 cup of ice and stir until thick. Remove any remaining ice and put the jello in the refrigerator until set. About 45 minutes.
Pour strawberry flavored jello and one package of knox gelatin in a separate bowl. Stir. Heat 2 cups of water to boiling. Pour the water on the jello and mix until dissolved. Add1/2 cup of ice and stir until thick. Remove any remaining ice and pour over the grape jello. Allow to set.
With your favorite metal cookie cutter, cut out heart shapes. This can be done a day ahead. Store in the refrigerator.
This was my first time making heart shaped knox blox and I think they turned out super cute. Typically I do rainbow Knox Blox. The directions are the same, just start with blue jello, then a layer of yellow and finally a layer of red jello.
