Here is yet another brilliant idea that I found via pinterest, except I decided to make my own molds. Mostly because I couldn't find the molds to buy, and also because I new I had 100's of plastic easter eggs in storage that I could easily use to make my own. I found the actual idea for the rainbow jello Easter eggs here but for me it was more of an idea, I took my own rainbow jello recipe and made my own molds and came up with these....
What you will need:
The Bottom Half of Your Empty Egg Cartons
12 Jumbo Plastic Easter Eggs (Make sure they do NOT have any holes in them and that they stay together well.)
6 (3 oz.) Boxes of Different Flavors/Colors of Jello
A 16 oz. Tub of Whipped Topping
Your Hubby's Drill and a 13/64 Drill Bit
Needed but Not Pictured:
Non-Stick Cooking Spray - Get Vegetable Oil or Original Spray...NOT Butter Flavored or any other flavor.
A Liquid Measuring Cup (Needs to measure at least one cup and be microwave save)
A 1/3 C. Measuring Cup
A Medicine Syringe (Mine measured up to 5 ML)
Open up all of your plastic egg and drill a hole in the top half of each of the eggs...
Wash your plastic eggs in hot soapy water...
After your eggs have dried, spray the insides of both half's with non-stick cooking spray...generously enough that the jello won't stick, but not so generously that you will be tasting the cooking spray when your jello eggs are done...
Put your eggs together and place them in your empty egg cartons...
Measure 1 cup of water and boil in the microwave for 2 minutes...
Pour that water into a bowl and dissolve your first color/flavor of jello in the boiling water...
Place 1/3 Cup of whipped topping into your other bowl...
Pour half of your dissolved jello over the whipped topping and whisk until the whipped topping is dissolved...
Set your "clear" bowl of dissolved jello aside...then take your whipped topping dissolved jello and measure out 10 ML (2 Medicine Syringe's full) of the jello mixture and squirt it into the hole on top of your plastic Easter egg. Repeat this process until you have put 10 ML of your jello mixture inside each of your 12 eggs.
Place eggs inside fridge for 30-45 minutes until jello has set up. Don't worry, they start setting up faster with each layer.
Remove your eggs from the fridge and add your clear layer of dissolved jello, let it set, then repeat steps 1-11 all over again until your eggs are full. Make sure to wash the dishes you used with HOT water after every layer...this will keep you from having to use 12 bowls, 12 spoons, 12 wisks, and 12 syringes :)
Very VERY Carefully remove your rainbow eggs from their molds...here is a tip for you, remove the bottom half of the egg first (the fatter shorter end) and they are more likely to come out in one piece, especially if you sprayed enough non-stick cooking spray on them...and Voila! Rainbow Jello Easter Eggs! I hope you enjoy! These are so yummy!
