Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs have been hatched at my house, and just in time for the upcoming holiday. My grandchildren went totally nuts over these super easy and fun treats to make. I found some of the jiggler egg molds on eBay last month and really wanted to give these cute and tasty treats a try before the holidays. It would give me time to create a recipe and have it past my kitchen test and my “recipe inspections” crew. These Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs passed with flying colors.
My granddaughter Autumn is one of my biggest fans” for critiquing my recipes. She’ll sit up to the table and take a bite, blink a couple of times, make an hummm noise, then take another bite and start off with her description of what she just tasted. These Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs got an “Oh My Gosh, these are so scrumptious” and “I just love the different flavors and how the creamy layer ties everything together”. I think she watches too many cooking channels with me! She gets into the judging character very easily.
Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs are a super fun way to get the kids involved in the kitchen. Start having some jiggling fun and enjoy some laughter in the kitchen tonight!
- 1 package – Unflavored Gelatin
- 12 Tbsp. – Cold Water
- 6 packages – Jello*
- 7 ½ cups – Boiling Water
- 1 ½ - 2 Cups – Greek Yogurt – plain
- Non Stick – Coconut Spray Oil
- 1 – Syringe – I used a medicine syringe
- Jell-O Jiggler Egg Molds**
- ½ cup – Heavy Cream
- ½ tsp – Vanilla
- 1 Tbsp. - Sugar
- Spray egg molds with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- Make one package of jello (whatever color you want to start with) at a time.
- In the 1st small bowl add 2 tbsp. cold water, ½ tsp unflavored gelatin, allow this to set for a couple of minutes. Then add 1 package of jello 1 ½ cups of boiling water mixing well. Once jello has dissolved, pour ¾ cup into a second small bowl – to this add 3 Tbsp. yogurt mixing well. Set both small bowls aside for a few minutes to cool.
- Once cooled using a syringe add 1 tsp of the darker liquid to the egg molds, refrigerator for 15 minutes, remove and add a syringe full of the yogurt layer, return to refrigerator to an additional 15 minutes. While this is setting make your next flavor.
- Repeat above process for each jello flavor. Allow egg molds to set up overnight in refrigerator to become nice and firm. Once molds have set for at least a couple of hours or overnight lower them into warm water, being careful not to get water over the top of the mold so it doesn’t get into the jello itself. This process makes it easier to remove the jello eggs from the mold.
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Cover half of egg with whip topping and serve.
- Whip heavy cream with hand mixer for 2 minutes, add vanilla and sugar and whip until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Put whip topping in a pipping bag or baggie, snip off the end and pipe on half of the egg to resemble deviled egg stuffing. Serve
*I used Red Raspberry, Lemon, Berry Blue, Peach, Lime, and Grape flavor jello for this recipe. **You can use the plastic eggs you get from the dollar store, just tape one end so jello doesn’t leak out while setting. I also layered the remaining jello into small cups for an extra treat.
These Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs are so very easy to make and extremely kid friendly (just make sure you take care of the boiling water and let them do the rest). During the setting time in-between the layers, play a family game and keep them interested without losing their attention. Believe me, they will keep running to the refrigerator to check on the process. When we made up the homemade whip topping they were all in there cleaning the bowl! It’s their favorite part.
Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs are a hit for any family gathering. So grab the family and get them in the kitchen making new and exciting fun memories while making these super easy Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs! Change up the colors to fit any holiday celebration. We had so much fun laughing and playing around making these Jello Jiggler Deviled Eggs and I can’t wait to do this again with them. Enjoy!
