Written Instructions (Printable PDF)

  1. 1. Start by making your jello (boil 1 cup of water and pour in gelatin packet and stir. Once dissolved, pour in one cup of cold water. Stir. Put jello in the fridge and allow it to sit for 2 hours).
  2. Pour Nerds into your mason jar (enough to cover the bottom).
  3. Take your jello out of the fridge and use a fork to make it fluffy and not smooth.
  4. Fill your mason jar almost to the top with jello.
  5. Push your Swedish fish into the jar (use a fork to push them down and put them close to the sides of the jar to make it easier to see them).
  6. Fill up the rest of your mason jar with whipped cream.
  7. Enjoy!
