Fruity Jello Roll-Ups

Turns out–that our little Jello Marshmallow adventure wasn’t a flop after all–like I thought it would be. So, we shall forge ahead and share it with you. Brace yourself…

it’s fabulous~

First, I have a sad confession to make, and that is–I have never been a huge fan of Knox Blox or Jello Jigglers or whatever you want to call them. It just seemed like chewing on a piece of fruity rubber and seriously, it always kind of freaked me out. So, when I saw this recipe, I was a bit skeptical.

But to my surprise, these little fruity rolls ups were different–and what-do-you-know, we love them! They are stretchy enough to be fun, but still soft enough to be chewable. In other words–perfect!

Even the little miss loved them…even if she wasn’t in the mood…

to smile for the camera.

I think she’s actually erasing me and my silly camera right now. Either that, or figuring that if she closes her eyes then I can’t see her.

Ok, ok…I get the hint. No. More. Pictures.

Sheesh!

I’m off to make another batch–this time, in Peach! If you’re wise, you’ll whip these little dudes up too.  :}

Fruity Jello Roll-Ups

1 (6 oz.) pkg. jello

1 cup boiling water

3 cups miniature marshmallows

Lightly spray a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Bring water to a boil and remove from heat.  Add Jello and stir well until Jello is completely dissolved–about 2 minutes.

Add marshmallows and stir until marshmallows begin to melt.  Whisk until marshmallows are completely dissolved.  A pretty little creamy layer will form on the top–unless you wait too long to refrigerate them–like I did.  Oops!

Pour into pan and immediately refrigerate until well set- 1 to 3 hours. They will be very firm and easy to handle.  Loosen edges with a knife.

Starting at one end, roll up tightly.  With seam side down, cut into 1/2 inch slices.  We used the dental floss cutting method (shown in this post).  Just put the string around roll-up, cross and pull to cut.

Serve immediately or store the cute little things in the refrigerator.

  1. Those look so fun! I’m heading to the pantry to see if I have 3 cups of marshmallows – hope I do cuz the girls would love a fun after school snack.

  2. Mauryn and I saw these on Pinterest the other day and wanted to try them! Glad to hear they’re as tasty as they look!

  3. You all MUST know that these are seriously wonderful and my girls now think I’m about the greatest mom on the earth! They were easy and fun and so yummy. Guess I’ll be adding jello and marshmallows to the staples I always have on hand. Can hardly wait to make them for some little people in Texas and Florida next time I see them.
