How To Make fish bowl jell-o

  • 1
    Place 1 1/2 C soda in a large bowl. Sprinkle jell-o evenly over soda & let stand to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Place 2 C soda in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until just before a boil. Add the softened jell-o, stirring to dissolve the jell-o completely over the heat, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the remaining soda & stir to combine.

    In fish bowl, add assorted color pop rocks (I like using red, blue, green & purple); mix well so it looks like rocks on the bottom of the fish bowl. Also add any fish tank decorations, if using.

    Pour the liquid into the fish bowl. Add fish & octopus, if using & stir. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill overnight. Lightly stiring every hour for the first 2 hours, just to make sure the fish look like they are swimming. But make sure the pop rocks & other decorations don't move.
