This is a quick & easy fun treat that the kids can help make--my kids love to help...just be careful with the boiling water :)
2 Large or 4 small boxes of flavored gelatin
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1 small box vanilla instant pudding mix
2 cups cold milk (I use fat free)
1. Bring water to a boil. Add gelatin & stir to dissolve. Set aside.
2. Mix together pudding mix & milk. Whisk until it starts to set a little.
3. Add gelatin to pudding, stir until well combined. Pour into a glass 9 x 13 pan (or for thicker treats, into a 9 x 9 inch pan). Chill until firm, about 3-4 hours.
We sometimes like to mix & match.
To make 2 flavors in smaller batches:
Use 1 large (or 2 small) box of gelatin & half the water, then eyeball half the prepared pudding per flavor. Pour each flavor into a separate dish (it fits great in a glass pie plate). Chill.
Try mixing flavors too...this time we made peach-pineapple & cherry-lime....I thought the peach-pineapple was great!
