Jiggly Jello Cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day

Hey everyone! I had so much fun with the Jello Frosting-and lime would be great for St. Pat's Day,
it seems I still have Jello on the brain...

Shaking-jiggling-jello... get it? No??? Don't worry, I won't quit the day job:@)

Jiggly Jello Cupcakes
  1. Bake cupcakes and cool completely.
  2. Add one cup of boiling water per 3oz pack of Jello. Mix well and chill until firm-one 3oz pack will make at least 14 cupcakes if poured into something that makes it about 1" deep. I used a 5" ramekin.
  3. I used a cupcake corer (Target/Williams-Sonoma/Amazon) and took out the center of the cupcake. 
  4. Remove the Jello from the pan, I ran hot water around the edges and turned it upside down on a plate. Clean the corer and use it again to cut the Jello into circles and place one in the center of each cupcake.
  5. Frost with Cool Whip and sprinkle with green sugar if desired.
  6. Store covered in fridge.
What other oldies but goodies could you make for St. Patrick's Day with Jello?
  • Jigglers-2 (8 serving size) Jello packs and 2 1/2 C boiling water. Mix well and pour into 9x13 pan, chill till firm. Cut out with a clover shaped cookie cutter.
  • Poke Cake-Bake a two layer cake, poke holes with a fork, mix 2 C boiling water with (2) 3oz packs of Jello. Slowly pour over cakes. Chill, unmold and frost with Cool Whip. Full directions here. Note: I tried to make Poke Cupcakes... yea, don't do that. What a mess.
  • Jello Shots-3oz box of Jello, 6oz boiling water, 6oz vodka. Pour Jello into a bowl, add boiling water and mix till dissolved. Stir in Vodka. Let cool, then pour into shot glasses (or those little disposable plastic ones) and chill till firm. 
  • Parfaits-Layer lime and lemon Jello cubes with Cool Whip/whipped cream in a pretty glass. Or do something really fancy like this.
  • And for the truly adventurous, how about a Jello Rainbow... directions here.
Any other ideas?
