Holiday Weekend Fun

Since it is Labor Day weekend, we have planned to get together with some friends tomorrow for lunch.  Everyone is bringing food, and the kids will have a great time playing together.  So...I have put together a little treat for the kids.  I started with an idea that came from Lisa at www.jerseygirlcooks.com.  She made orange creamsicle jello shots for a party.  I loved the presentation so much that I made a kid friendly version to take along tomorrow.  By the way, the link to Lisa's recipe is:  http://www.jerseygirlcooks.com/2011/07/orange-creamsicle-jello-shots.html.

I started with 4 oranges.  I cut them in half, squeezed out the juice, and removed what was left in shell.  Then I put the halves in a muffin tin to keep them level.  Next, I followed the directions on the jello package to make Jigglers.  I poured the mixture into the orange halves, covered them with plastic wrap, and put the muffin tin in the refrigerator. 

After they were set up, I cut them into quarters.  The kids will love eating these!  They look just like quartered oranges.  Thanks Lisa!  What a fun idea!
