( tip for tastier jello: INSTEAD OF BOILING WATER USE BOILNG JUICE, so if you're making grape jello I boil grape juice... if I'm making orange jello I use orange juice, or sometimes I'll use pineapple, or cranberry juice. It makes them oh so tasty! )
Pour the Jello gelatin in a bowl, then ad the water/juice. Stir in slowly to avoid clumping, and continue stirring until mixture is completely dissolved.
Pour the mix into the ice cube trays, and let the jello chill in the refrigerator for three to four hours. The longer you allow the mold to chill the better.
If you do not have ice cube trays shaped like holiday things, you can use a baking sheet and cookie cutters, place the cutters onto the tray, then fill the tray with enough water so that when you place the cutters into the freezer, they will stick to the pan, making you very own jello molds! Once the water has frozen, then pour the Jello mix into the cutters.
