Candy Corn Jello Cups Recipe

- 1 small box orange jello

Dissolve orange jello in 1 cup of boiling water and stir until dissolved then add ½ cup cold water
When jello is room temperature, divide the jello between the 6 glasses by pouring the mixture carefully then place in refrigerator until completely set
To make the white layer bring the milk to a boil then add the sugar until dissolved and remove from stove.
In ¼ cup cold water dissolve the Knox gelatin and add to the mixture
Add the vanilla and sour cream and beat well with a mixer.
When mixture is room temperature, top off the jello cups (note: You will have some white mixture left over)
When completely firm top with whipped cream and sprinkles if desired
In case you are wondering, I bought these glasses from IKEA – they came in a six pack and were super cheap. I find myself using them for all kinds of mini desserts. They are also great to put some dip in and place some carrot or celery sticks inside. You might need to go shopping 🙂
I had fun using the sprinkles and wanted to show you an action shot!
Grab a spoon and dig in!
