Valentines Jello Hearts

Jello Hearts

Valentines Day. Do you like it? Me..I’m on the fence.
Maybe back in High School when the boys were romantic, it was a cutsie and stuff.
But I have come to the realization the Valentines day is a Hallmark Day. I mean unless your man is Uber romantic, it will probably be just another day…..sigh. I think once you have kids, like everything else, the holiday becomes about them.

But we can still be a hopeless romantic and make some heart shaped Jello, right?
It’s cute and the kids liked to help.

Jello and kids kinda go hand in hand.

I got the idea of the multi colored Jello from the old school Jello Mosaic Dessert Bars
But what fun is it just cutting the jello into cubes? Let’s make hearts!!!!

Below is that it looks like before its final 2 hour chill.
As you can see, I used a small heart cookie cutter to cut my firmed red jello and arranged them in a 9 x 13 pan, then poured the sweetened condensed mixture over the top.

And once the firm, you invert the pan and cut them out.
Cute, huh?
