A perfect Island cool dessert that the kids will love to make and eat! During a visit with my nephew Vinny, who is from Upstate New York, (my home town) visiting me here in Florida, we decided to make something tropical, fun and easy. Utica, New York reported having three major snow storms while he had been here on vacation in sunny Florida.
A tropical looking dessert was in order so when he went home to all the rest of his family he can make this tropical special treat to warm them up with a little taste of the tropics for the rest of his family.
It would be perfect tropical dream escape for them.This was such a cute idea that turned out awesome,he did a great job recreating that Island warm feeling in one little cup!
You can make these for birthday parties, events, change the theme to football or even holiday! Get creative with the kids in the kitchen and turn something simple into a fun project. Jello is so versatile that way. You can create some many scenes and fun creations with a little imagination. Get the kids involved in the kitchen and make some memories.
As you can see I like to take lots of photos for them to remember me by! When I think of the future and they memories we made, I want them to also look back to instill these same values in their children. It's fun and a great way to start traditions.
So here is what you need:
Clear 8 ounce Plastic cups (around 6)
2 packages of Blue Raspberry Jello we used jolly rancher
Vanilla Pudding Cups
Sour Patch Kid candy
Cookie Mini Bears
Chocolate Mini Hershey Bars
Candy Mini Fish Sprinkles (we found this on top of a can of blue store bought frosting, the sprinkles came with it)
Make the blue jello to the package instructions and chill completely until solid.
Spread the pudding over the far edge of the glass, add a sour patch kid in the vanilla pudding standing up. Place a small square of chocolate on the vanilla pudding and lay a cookie bear on top. Place the umbrella over the bear. Sprinkle the mini candy fish on the blue part of the jello and enjoy!
