Cool, fruity and creamy, these gelatin treats are richer than plain gelatin and cut easily into whatever shape you'd like. They're a fun finger food that works for any holiday or theme. -Annette Ellyson, Carolina, West Virginia

"Oh my goodness, these are SO GOOD! So far I've made them with strawberry gelatin and lime gelatin. The lime works great for St. Patrick's Day, and I used a shamrock cookie cutter. I've already made this recipe quite a few times and everyone who's tried them has loved them... will definitely keep on making them!"

"These are great. I took them to a church fellowship and they were a hit. I am going to try other combinations of flavors and use different cookie cutters. Many possibilities with this recipe!"

"These were a little too sweet for my tastes, but I think they would be perfect for kids."

"My three y/o grandson enjoyed the Valentine jigglers. My daughter liked them as well and we discussed lime jello on St Paddy's Day and peach jello for spring/easter. We plan to use the receipe again, although I thought it was a lot of jello and it was certainly "stiff". I used sugar free jello."

"These were very good! My husband wanted to take some to work to "show off" what I made him."
