Jell-O Jiggler Magic Orange Slices

I wanted something fun and special for my daughter's 10th birthday Luau and found a photo similar to the above on Pinterest.
Unfortunately, of the several (all the same exact photo) Pinterest links, they just took me to general photo pages, but never took me to an actual blog or tutorial.
If anyone knows anything about the original post, please let me know.

But in the meantime, I will share what I figured out on my own.
Make sure you choose oranges with a good thick skin.


only 12 oranges = 24 halves
24 halves then cut into smaller slices gave me roughly 100 pieces to serve.
Waaaay too many!  lol

I had grand plans to add the orange innards to my fruit kabobs, but they were messy and mushy, so I just put them into baggies and froze them instead.  They'll be great for adding to smoothies later!



In trying to come up with the best way to balance these til the Jell-O set, I thought of muffin tins.
THEY WORKED GREAT!


I had five different flavors of Jell-O, making only one small box at a time.
It only took about 5 minutes to do each color, so it was actually much simpler than I had anticipated.
(The hardest part was hollowing out the oranges)
Use a little less water than directed, to make the Jell-O set a little harder.

Ready to refridgerate!



Chill, slice.... 
And VOILA!
These were a HUGE hit with EVERYONE!  Even the adults!

Stay tuned for the rest of the Luau!
