Since my Jello disaster of New Year’s Eve, I haven’t felt much like venturing back into the delightfully jiggly world of gelatin shots, but these Jello oranges were just the thing to motivate me back into it.
All you need are oranges and Jello. And vodka, if you’re me.
Also if you are me, you need a way to take selfies of holding oranges in front of your boobs. I failed… unless my boobs really are that low…
Slice your oranges in half.
And then you can either scoop out the pulp or juice it. I scooped, but it was harder than I thought it would be. I ended up using a knife to go around the edges and then scooping the rest out with a spoon.
And, not to worry, I ate all that deliciousness for breakfast.
I also might have sampled a little of this for breakfast. (What? Chef’s prerogative.)
I made some Jello and added some vodka.
And then I carefully– so carefully– poured it into the oranges. Not carefully enough though.
Womp womp. And moving it into the refrigerator proved to be another messy proposition. One of the oranges tipped almost all the way over, but I had a little extra Jello, so I filled it back up after I got it in the fridge.
I left it all day to, er… become solid or whatever it is that Jello does when you leave it alone.
My sweet little niece came by in the afternoon to drop off my Girl Scout cookies, and I almost offered her some Jello orange slices, but then I remembered they had vodka in them and I probably shouldn’t send her home drunk.
Auntie of the year award.
They came out a little messy…
But I persevered.
And they turned out resoundingly… meh.
On the plus side, they taste like Jello and have vodka in them. But they were kind of a lot of work for funny-looking Jello-in-orange-peels.
