Heart Jello Mold Recipe
This recipe can be used for the Qwiggle brand heart jello mold, and similar
sized heart molds from other manufacturers.
Heart jello molds are very poplar.
Heart Jello molds are used for:
Pumpkin carving parties
To celebrated successful heart surgery
In classes to promote heart health
To symbolize giving your heart to someone
Cleaning the Mold:
Before each use, wash the entire inside cavity of the plastic Heart mold
using a soft sponge, dish soap, and warm water.
Be careful to avoid puncturing a hole in the thin areas of the plastic mold
while washing and drying it.
Dry thoroughly before use.
One large, 6 ounce box of peach or watermelon flavored gelatin. (Use any
flavor, if a flesh tone is not desired)
Six ounces of lite evaporated skimmed milk (99.5% fat free). No other milk
Oil Cooking Spray (to lubricate the plastic mold)
Green food coloring
One 1 cup boiling water
Spray a small amount of cooking oil inside of the cavity of the plastic mold.
Place gelatin from the boxes into a large bowl.
Add 1 cup of boiling water. Stir gelatin with a whisk until it is completely
dissolved, about 3 minutes.
Add skimmed milk and stir for one minute.
Add a few drops of green food coloring to produce the flesh tone color, re-stir.
Pour gelatin mixture into the plastic Heart mold.
Fashion a towel inside of a rectangular cake pan. Set the Heart mold inside
and level. This will keep the mold level.
Place the mold in the refrigerator overnight.
Extracting the hardened gelatin from the mold:
Put on a cooking glove, and carefully loosen the gelatin away from the wall
of the mold.
Place the open palm of your gloved hand on the top of the gelatin, and turn
the mold over.
Use a slight grabbing or pulling motion to pull the gelatin out of the mold.
Use the tip of a potato peeler to cut a hole into the large artery, to make
it look more realistic. Repeat this for the other two, smaller arteries.
You may need a small paring knife for the smaller arteries.
Place mold onto a plate or a platter.
Use a butter knife to trim away any excess gelatin.
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.
