Jello Critters

These healthy snacks are fun for all ages. Kids especially will love these treats cut with cookie cutters into their favorite shapes. Try adding food color like Blue to the white grape fruit juice or adding blueberries in regular red jello.

These are always fun for the holidays. For instance, use orange-pineapple pumpkins at Haloween, red fruit-berry bells at Christmas, red and blue stars for July 4th, etc. A drop of food coloring in the white grape juice will transform it to any season. Use your imagination and enjoy!
