Jell-O® Aquarium



  • 6 ounce Berry Blue Jell-O Gelatin
  • 1 can fruit cocktail
  • 2 can gummy fish


Baking Directions:

Make Jell-O gelatin according to directions on the box.

Pour into goldfish bowl.

Drain fruit cocktail and slowly pour into goldfish bowl.

It will sink to the bottom and act as gravel.

  Place Jell-O gelatin in the refrigerator to thicken, for about an hour.

Don't let it set completely.

Remove from refrigerator and place the gummy (or plastic) fish in the Jell-O gelatin, using a chopstick, knife, or back of a spoon to push the fish toward the bottom of the goldfish bowl.

Return the Jell-O gelatin to the refrigerator to set completely.

When the Jell-O gelatin has set and is ready to serve, use a spoon to scoop it and the fish out.

If you are using plastic fish, be sure to set them aside.

This recipe can also be made in small individual goldfish bowls, so that guests can take them home as party favors.

If you want to make the "water" in your aquarium a lighter shade of blue, you can replace the second box of Berry Blue Jell-O Gelatin with four 7-gram packets of unflavored gelatin.
