Our Test Kitchen had fun creating these jolly gelatin jigglers—but not as much fun as your kids are likely to have helping to make them! Best of all, you can vary the cookie-cutout shapes (and gelatin flavors) to suit a year of seasonal holidays—from Halloween to Valentine’s Day.

At the root of this treat is plenty of penny-wise practicality. "I first started making the 'logs' after I saw some chocolate-dipped pretzels at a shop," explains Mary Biebl of St. Paul, Minnesota. "They sure were appealing—but the price was outrageous. So I came up with my own version. "Nowadays, I often tie bundles of plastic-wrapped 'logs' with ribbons to give out a Christmas, or I'll set a stack out on a pretty plate for a party."—Mary Biebl, St. Paul, Minnesota
