I’m going to go ahead and say this… I’m not a fan of gelatin desserts. I don’t know if it’s all those times I was forced to eat jello in the hospital, or the fact that it’s made of ground up bones, or both- though agar isn’t any better because it reminds me of prepping petri dishes in the lab.
Anyway…. I wanted to make something creepy and disgusting this Halloween, and when I came upon this tutorial for making a valentine Jell-o heart, I couldn’t resist. My version of the heart doesn’t bleed since my kids wanted to eat it and the thought of picking out plastic bag bits to prevent choking was just a little too stressful for me. I want pretend scary, not real scary!
The instructions in the tutorial were easy to follow, and this was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be, though a bit time consuming to decorate. It was all worth it though and the results were the scariest, most disgusting thing I have ever made. See for yourself!
…Oh, and be warned. It is pretty disgusting looking…
Here are some more pics of the decorating process.
If you’re really sick, you can set a fancy table and serve your heart on a platter.
