    United Colors Of Jello: Jello and cream of different flavors all in one cone and M&Ms to boot.

I was out all day and came home at 3 pm with no idea what jelly to make for the Jelliriffic! Challenge today. I had to pick my son up from school at 3:30 pm and was worried that there wouldn't be much time to take photos by the time I get back.

Whenever I travel, I love to check out supermarkets and bookstores because the supermarkets and bookstores here are absolutely pathetic. It's no wonder that I hate grocery shopping here.  Not one supermarket is well-stocked. Last week I had to go to 3 supermarkets just to get Jello. I think that the selection and variety of products are getting worse as the economy slides.

So what could I make quickly and be set by the time I get back? Jello of course. I had plenty leftover from making Broken Hearts.

I know this is similar to Broken Hearts but you know what, it tasted good and was easy to make so you might want it for your kid's birthday party. I usually avoid coloring but I'm partial to Jello. It's refreshing, fun to eat, looks pretty and is really quite delicious. The addition of cream makes Jello taste even better and with five different flavors, you've got the rainbow covered. Almost.

United Colors Of Jello
1/4 packet each of 5 to7 different Jellos
150 ml dairy whipping cream
Garnish: mini M&Ms
1. Make each 1/4 packet of Jello with 1/2 cup boiling water. To speed up the setting, you can use 1/4 cup of boiling water to dissolve the Jello and then add 1/4 cup of ice-chilled water. Make each Jello in a small bowl and put into the fridge to chill until thick and syrupy. Meanwhile, whisk the cream until stiff and leave in fridge.
2. When the Jellos are syrupy (not set or they won't mix well with the cream), mix 2 heaped tablespoon of cream into each Jello with a small whisk. If the Jello becomes too runny, put it into the fridge to set for a minute or less, depending on how set the Jello is.
2. Rinse a Nick Munro mould and scoop a tablespoon or two (vary the amount) of each color into the mould until the mould is filled. Press each scoop of jelly firmly so that you won't get pockets of air. I did not and you can see pock marks on my jelly. Leave in fridge to set. Garnish with the M&Ms.

I think I'm the same. I don't go near colouring most of the time but when it comes to jellies I'm quite forgiving. Just because jellies to me are fun to eat and part of the reason is because of the vibrant colours hehe. The more colourful to more playful and enjoyable it is. Would love to try this out!! =)

United colours of Benetton was one of my favourite brands in my young adult years. I just love this united colours jelly. The beautiful pastel shades that result from jelly mixed with cream are just so lovely.
