Sweet Girl checking out the finished product.
Okay, I know I've been posting up a storm lately, but I just have to share this fun and super easy recipe that my sister-in-law, Jenny, did with/for the girls last weekend.  She found the idea via Facebook.

This would be a great idea for a refreshing treat or for a colorful snack at a party.  One box of Jell-O filled about 5 oranges or 10 orange halves.  The orange Jell-O combination was the favorite in our family.

Jell-O Oranges

Ingredients:  10 oranges, 2 boxes of Jell-O (we made on orange and one raspberry), water, ice

Supplies needed:  knife, grapefruit spoon (to clean out oranges), bowl, measuring cup, mixing spoon, sauce pan, muffin tin

What to do:
1.  Jenny and Shaba Girl (the name my 9 year old niece picked out for herself) worked to cut and clean out the oranges.  Wash them out (with plain water of course!) to make sure they are all clean.  Save the pulp for eating, making juice or adding it to the Jell-O (this was Shaba Girl's idea).
2.  Make the Jell-O according to the directions on the box.  Some recipes call for making the jigglers recipe (for a firmer Jell-O), but I think they just made the regular recipe and it worked fine.
3.  Shaba Girl poured the prepared Jell-O into the orange halves.  She added some of the pulp (cut into bite-size pieces) to some of the orange halves.
Hint:  Jenny ended up putting the orange halves in a muffin tin and finished filling them that way.  She also used some small coffee cups.  This made it a lot easier to transport!
4.  Keep orange halves in the refrigerator until the Jell-O is set.
5.  Use a sharp knife to cut the oranges in half.  Be careful not to squeeze the orange too hard.  Even the ones with fruit looked nice when they were cut.  You can even serve the orange halves as is, like a little bowl.  
Sweet Girl liked the raspberry Jell-O.

Sweet Girl making sure she got it all.
