Orange peels filled with jello

We found this idea on my SIL’s pinterest page and had to try it! Jack and I had so much fun making these plus its a great way to use up oranges that are about to go bad. We had a whole box to use up!

Oranges

You will need:

  • oranges
  • jello mix
  • knox gelatin

First cut the oranges in half and scrape out the insides. We hand juiced them all for fresh squeezed orange juice.

Then prepare your jello mix as indicated on the package but also add 1 package of Knox gelatin to each pack of jello mix. Put your orange peel halves in muffin tins so they will evenly set. Pour jello in orange peels and let set in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Slice and serve!
