This easy Mosaic Jello is a fun, kid-friendly snack.
Hi guys, it’s Renz!!
Back again and so thankful that Christina has given me the chance to bring you another recipe .
OMG, it has been such a hectic few months with me. My sister had surgery and my mom came up to help out but it has been so much up and down. I cannot imagine how we have been able to keep it all together if she had not come up from Trinidad.
I do love these times, though, we get to reminisce so much. Not just about activities we did as children but also about all the foods we made at home together or memories of me playing and gobbling up all the foods at other people’s houses. I was such an active child. In fact, they called me “Queen Play” so I had to eat to keep up my energy. (Well that’s my excuse)
One of the two things we especially talked about was cheese paste and jello eating. At children’s’ parties in the Caribbean, cheese paste was quickly gobbled up by kids in it’s flavorful and colorful glory. Jello was the afternoon cool down after playing outside all day. Something about running into that fridge and scooping out spoons of jello into a bowl was the ultimate after play snack. Then when mommy topped it with condensed milk?? Pure joy.
So today’s post is my reliving the day’s of jello.
As as a child, I felt like jello was pure magic. How did my mom get some crystals from a box to turn into the sweet, giggling goodness?
And it became even better with some condensed milk on it.
And it becomes even better when you combine all of them together to make this amazingly gorgeous mosaic jello that captures all the amazing colors.
Childhood memories are some of the funniest ones. It brings back so many emotions. Just having this jello with my mom again reminds me of all the laughter of playing outside and not a care in the world. #WhyDidIGrowUp
