Question: Recipe for "Finger Jello"

Does anyone have a recipe for "Finger Jello"? Back in the late 70's, early 80's I use to use Jello powder and Knox Gelatin and water but do not remember the amounts of each. You can cut it into shapes and it is easy to handle and take for snacks to school, etc. It is easy to pick up and eat for little fingers!
