  • Spritz a little cooking spray into the trays first.

  • Maybe you should freeze them first and then just bend it back and forth like you would ice so it will fall out. Then put the cubes in the refrigerator to make them like normal jello....i don't know I'm reaching here. It's not like you can put pam on the ice tray.

  • Oh - and also, don't try and scoop them out or anything, submerge the trays up to the line - where the jell-o itself isn't in the water as well.. into warm water. Let it sit for a minute or so. The outer jell-o will slightly melt from the heat of the water, combined with cooking spray, they should slide right out when tipped over.
    If not, just repeat the warm water.

  • cooking spray and use less water and make them more like a jello jiggler than the softer jello
