Rain Drop Jelly

Because sometimes an occasion just calls for a gummy frog hidden in cotton candy overtop a goblet of multi-colored jello.


  • 1 1/4 cups cider
  • 2 balls white cotton candy
  • 2 frog gummies
  • 1 to 2 drops purple food coloring
  • 1 to 2 drops blue food coloring
  • Liquid jelly:
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Cut an opening in each cotton candy ball and stick a frog gummy in it.
  2. Soak the powdered gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water. In a bowl, heat the water, then mix in sugar, gelatin and lemon juice. Allow to cool.
  3. Pour 3 tablespoons of the gelatin mixture into a shallow bowl and add purple food coloring. Pour another 3 tablespoons of the gelatin mixture into a separate shallow bowl and add blue food coloring. Refrigerate until solidified.
  4. Remove from the refrigerator, and cut into thin pieces. Transfer to a round ice cube tray. Pour leftover gelatin mixture overtop and refrigerate with the lid on until solid.
  5. Remove gelatin rounds from the refrigerator and divide between 2 glasses. Top each with a cotton candy ball and pour cider over the top to melt the cotton candy and reveal the hidden frog.
