Frequently asked questions

Can Knox gelatin be used instead of Jell-O mix?

Yes, you can use gelatin instead. However, it’s flavorless and colorless, so you will have to add your own flavors and colors as desired. Honey and fruit juices are a healthy choice for flavors.

Can silicon molds be used?

Silicon molds are, in fact, a better alternative to regular cookie cutters due to their more sophisticated and festive shapes.

What is the best ratio between water and jell-o mix?

2½ cups of boiling water for 6 oz of Jello is the best ratio that can yield firm and consistent jello jigglers.
