Jello Jelly & Kool-Aid Jelly

Karla Everett


Jelly couldn't be any easier than to make it with Jello or Kool-aid pkg's. You can get some really pretty colors of jelly.

I got these recipes from the net along time ago and have no idea from where.

How to Make Jello Jelly & Kool-Aid Jelly


  1. FOR THE JELLO JELLY : Put first 3 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a hard boil. Add sugar and Jello: mix well, and bring to hard boil again. Boil 15 to 20 minutes. Skim top and fill jars.
  2. FOR THE kOOL-AID JELLY : 1. Mix water, Sure-Jell and Kool-Aid together.
    2. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
