This super easy recipe for Simple Firecracker Jello Cups has really gotten me excited about the 4th of July! I mean, I’m always excited–but this year, there will be fireworks in my mouth!
Let’s be really clear. I love summer.
It’s the best time of the year.
And the best holiday in the best time of the year? Freaking July 4th, baby.
That time where we all BBQ, stand outside in the yard, and enjoy Simple Firecracker Jello Cups while we watch the sky explode.
Seriously, when else can I get a hot dog, a popsicle, maybe a burger and a show in my own back yard? Never–but on July 4th…that party is on!
Best. Night. Ever.
This year, I’m super stoked and I’ve already started trying out recipes (that’s kind of what I do–I don’t want to screw them up on the day of…)
And, I’m feeling a bit stoked because I finally figured out how to make multi-layered jello.
Yeah, that’s right, this is the first time I’ve made anything like this and I’m a little proud, if I do say so myself.
These Simple Firecracker Jello Cups are so simple, I kind of feel like a dolt that I didn’t figure it out before.
But I guess it just hadn’t occurred to me how to do the whole layering thing…figured it out now, though! LOL!
And now that I know how…watch out…there may be other recipes headed your way…
If you’re ready to figure out how to make your own Simple Firecracker Jello Cups, but you’re out of Twizzlers, don’t worry!
Just pin this to your favorite July 4th party ideas board on Pinterest so you can find it later.
And, when you come back to make these, be sure to drop a pic on Pinterest to show me how yours turned out!
