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!

Just made this the other day.

Finger Jello

3 small pkg (3oz ea) Flavored Jello

4 cups boiling water


Add 4 pkg. knox gelatin one at a time and let dissolve.

Add 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Pour into a 13x9 inch pan very lightly greased with pam (I spray pam very lightly then wipe out with a paper towel, that way it leaves enough to keep jello from sticking, but does not leave the pam film on the jello)

Place in refrigerator. Jells in 2 hours.

This is the recipe I have used for years. It doesn't call for Knox, just Jell-o and water.


four 4-serving or two 8-serving pkgs. Jell-o

2 1/2 cups boiling water or fruit juice

Stir water into Jell-o until completely dissolved. Pour into a 9x13 inch pan. Chill, cut in squares.
