For Christmas, you might like to use a jello mold, perhaps a Santa or a Christmas tree. You can use red and green jello for a festive look to your jello mold recipe. Jello cookies are also very nice at thanksgiving and Christmas and they are also great for birthdays.

A jello poke cake is a very easy recipe to make. You can bake a cake using a cake mix and simply poke holes in it with a fork and pour jello over the top.

How to Make Easter Jello Eggs

This recipe makes twelve jello eggs and it is a fun recipe for kids. In fact, you can let the kids choose which flavors of jello to use for making this jello eggs recipe. You do not have to stick to the flavors suggested in the recipe. To blow out eggs, you need to make a hole in one end, poke a needle through the egg to pierce the yolk and use a thin drinking straw to blow the egg out. The hole must be big enough for this to be possible.

Afterwards you should run water into the eggshell to remove any egg traces. Finally, microwave the eggshells for fifteen seconds to dry them and strengthen them.

What you will need:

  • 12 eggs
  • 4 packages Knox gelatin
  • 1 package strawberry jello
  • 1 package blueberry jello
  • 1 package orange jello
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

How to make them:

Add a cup of boiling water to each jello flavor and stir well until the jello powder dissolves. Dissolve the gelatin in the cold water and stir in the lemon juice. Mix a third of this mixture into each jello and boiling water mixture. Blow out the eggs by making a hole in the base and letting the raw egg run out.

Pour the liquid jello into the eggshells and store them hole side up in the egg box in the refrigerator until the jello sets. This will take a couple of hours. Take the jello eggs out of the refrigerator half an hour before serving them and peel them like hard boiled eggs.

Serve them on some green colored coconut flakes. You can make these by stirring a few drops of green food coloring into a dish of coconut flakes.

How the Easter Bunny Got His Start

How the Easter bunny got his start:

Easter has many symbols to share,so many of which we have even forgotten their origins. Take the bunny and egg did we get from the sacrifice and rebirth of Jesus to a fluffy
bunny delivering eggs?? Well, I had that same question. So after a little searching I found some information I'd like to share with you. Well eggs have symbolized life and rebirth for centuries and they were adopted as a gift to give at Easter time between the royalty hundreds of years ago. They use to be crafted from gold and silver though not chocolate, personally I prefer the chocolate, yummy. Great detail was crafted on to those eggs and now they are worth a fortune to own. The egg giving was a symbol of Jesus sacrifice of his life. The rabbit or bunny has symbolized life,fertility and has been thought to bring spring by many cultures. Then long ago in a tale began of women who hide Easter treats for her children outside one
Easter Eve and when the next morning children went looking they saw a bunny next to their treats in what looked to them as a nest. Thus spread the tale of the Easter bunny delivering the eggs. It was later adopted by to add to our Easter celebrations. It's amazing to me how that wonderfully fun bunny is packed with a message of springs' rebirth and the sacrifices made to bring us all a new beginning.
