Right out of the shoot, I will tell you that the Jell-O eggs at our house on Easter Sunday remained almost untouched. While the pictured eggs taken to church that day – were gobbled up.
So, this recipe may or may not be something your family will enjoy. However, I can offer this as a sure thing… the eggs do make a colorful Easter centerpiece.
I am featuring the gelatin eggs this week because making them requires molds. And long before Easter the molds are always sold out. I order through Amazon. For two years I have wanted another 2 sets, and have not been able to purchase them. So, as soon as they are back in stock, I plan on ordering them for next year; not for my family, but for the little kiddies at church. Currently our family is mostly made up of adults, or near adults, but great-grands are a comin’ – four now. Sweet? Oh yeah!
