Qwiggle Hand Jello Mold Recipe

Lost the recipe for your Jello Hand Mold? No problem, here it is

This recipe can be used for the Qwiggle brand hand jello mold, and similar sized hand molds from other manufacturers.

The manufacturer of Qwiggle molds has gone out of business. But, many of us have kept our Qwiggle hand mold, or have a similar sized hand jello mold made by another manufacturer.

Clean the Mold:

  1. Wash the entire inside cavity of the plastic Hand mold using a soft sponge, dish soap, and warm water before each use. Rinse well.

  2. Be careful to avoid puncturing a hole in the thin areas of the plastic mold while washing and drying it.

  3. Dry thoroughly before use.


  1. One large, 6 ounce box of peach or watermelon flavored gelatin. Use any flavor and color, if a flesh tone is not desired.

  2. One small, 3ounce box of peach or watermelon flavored gelatin.

  3. Six oz. of lite evaporated skimmed milk (99.5% fat free). No other milk will work!

  4. Oil Cooking Spray (to lubricate the plastic mold)

  5. Green food coloring

  6. One 1/2 cups of water(1 cups boiled, 1/2 cup cold)

Recipe Instructions:

  1. Spray the hand mold with a small amount of cooking oil (2 teaspoons) inside of the cavity of the plastic mold.

  2. Pour jello gelatins into a large bowl.

  3. Add 1 cup of boiling water. Stir gelatin with a whisk until it is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes.

  4. Stir in 1/2 cup of cold water.

  5. Add skimmed milk and stir for two minutes.

  6. Add a few drops of green food coloring to produce the flesh tone color, re-stir.

  7. Pour gelatin mixture into the Hand mold.

  8. Fashion a towel inside of a rectangular cake pan. Set the hand mold inside and level. This will keep the mold level.

  9. Place the mold in the refrigerator overnight.

Extracting the hardened gelatin from the mold:

  1. Put on a cooking glove, and carefully loosen the gelatin away from the wall of the mold.

  2. Place the open palm of your hand on the top of the gelatin, and turn the mold over.

  3. Use a slight grabbing or pulling motion to pull the gelatin out of the mold.

  4. Place mold onto a plate or a platter.

  5. Use a butter knife to trim away any excess gelatin.

  6. Cover the mold with a plastic food wrap and return the mold to the refrigerator until you are ready to put it on display and serve it.
