Here Is A Big, Easy, Lovely Surprise That Jiggles The Heart.

Day 7. Recipe 7.

When we were kids, the red, orange or green stuff was likely a special after dinner treat. When we were teenagers, we may have swiped a few sweet little shots from a friends party. It was there when we were sick and we needed hydration. It was always there for parties and holidays especially those involving grandma. 

It has taken different forms and shines in different molds. It has been a mainstay and a steady stream of delight in our lives for years.

However, is it me, or has gelatin started to quietly disappear?

Does anyone one eat gelatin anymore?

It is such an easy and lovely treat it's incredible that we don't eat it every day.

My family slurped up two pans in two days of the Jiggle Giggle Gelatin Hearts, and for the record, it did make us giggle a whole bunch.

No, "Oh, barfs!" here.


Jiggle Giggle Gelatin

  • 3-3/4 cups white grape juice
  • 4 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • (optional) heart-shaped pastry cutter

Step 1: Separate 3 cups grape juice in a medium saucepan, set on the stove top and turn the burner on medium/high heat. Bring the juice to a boil.

Step 2: Place the remaining 3/4 cup grape juice in a bowl and sprinkle all four packets of gelatin over the 1 cup grape juice. Let sit for 2 minutes.

Step 3: Carefully add the boiling grape juice to the bowl of gelatin and stir for 5 minutes. Add the honey and stir until dissolved.

Step 4: In a 13" x 9"- inch pan and place in the refrigerator for at 3 hours. Remove and cut with the heart cutter or into squares.
