    Jello Bowls
  • Chill for 2 hours or until set.
  • Prepare blue jello per package instructions.
  • Pour blue jello on top of the green jello.
  • Chill for 2 hours or until set.
  • Wash and destem strawberries.
  • Cut all the strawberries in half vertically. Set aside the 2 halves of the largest strawberry.
  • Cut the halves of the smaller strawberries into strips with the tip of the strawberry pointing toward you. Each half should yield 3–4 strips. Set the strips from the edge of the halves (with a rounded side) in a separate pile from the rectangular strips cut from the center of the halves.
  • Assemble the strawberry giant squid on a cutting board. To make the head and body, situate one of the halves of the largest strawberry so the wide end is toward you, then connect the wide end of the second half with the wide end of the first so the point is facing toward you. Use the rectangular strips to create limbs by connecting two rectangular strips and one rounded-edge strip at the end. You should create five limbs in total.
    Strawberry Giant Squid
  • Place the strawberry giant squid on the surface of the jello.

Notes

  • The strawberry giant squid can be in the blue jello layer. Prepare and place the strawberries on top of the green jello while preparing the blue jello. Be careful since the strawberries will likely slide. It is best to only use a small amount of the blue jello first, allowing that to chill and hold the strawberries in place, before pouring the rest of the blue layer.
  • Any flavor of green or blue jello can be used. This recipe uses green lime jello and berry blue jello.
  • The strawberry giant squid can have longer limbs. Add more rectangular slices until the desired length is achieved.
  • If creating separate single servings, a strawberry giant squid should be made for each serving.
  • Blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries can be added before pouring either jello layer to include additional fruit if desired.
