These fun treats are made by setting goldfish crackers in jello – they look really cute!

I made some blue Jello according to the pack instructions, and divided the mixture into four clear plastic cups.
I put the Jello cups into the fridge. After about an hour, when the Jello was gloopy but not solid, I pushed in three Goldfish Grahams into each cup. These type of Goldfish crackers are sweet, and I thought they’d look really fun in the blue sea of Jello.
After the Jello had firmed up it looked so cute!
I brought them out for a playdate and the girls loved how they looked and immediately started to dig in.
However, they didn’t like the taste very much! I thought that the Jello tasted pretty good actually, although the Goldfish had crumbled with all the moisture. So you might want to have a plan B for your next dinner party dessert.
Later I gave one to F and unfortunately he too was less than impressed. He dug around in it with his spoon for a while.
Then I asked if he was actually going to eat it? I got a resounding “no”. Huh. In fairness, I’ve not been able to persuade him to eat Jello to date so I wasn’t particularly surprised. I showed him that there were fish inside. He tried to dig them out but of course they crumbled. And he gave up. Hey ho, all the more for me…
