I love these cute Jell-O fruit slices! They're so easy to make and fun to serve. They really look like slices of fruit! You can make these with any flavor of Jell-O you like. Bright colors (like pictured below) would be fun for a summer bbq. You can also add alcohol to make unique and tasty Jell-O shots.
Look at all these fun colors! What kid or adult wouldn't gobble these up? (And yes, I know what gelatin is made of). But still, these would be great at any party.
Here's how to do it:
Hollow out orange halves (Oranges impart a sweet flavor. I wouldn't recommend limes or lemons because they add a bitter note to the Jell-O). Save the orange segments for another use. I made an orange, soy sauce chicken with mine. So good!
Once the Jell-O is firm, cut into wedges and serve.

Jell-O Fruit Slices
Cut oranges in half. Hollow out oranges and save insides for another use. Place oranges in a muffin tin. Make Jell-O according to package directions. Pour Jell-O into each orange half, filling them to the top. Chill until set, usually 4 hours. Cut orange halves into wedges.
* If making these with alcohol, substitute part of the cold water (not hot) with alcohol.
