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
3 1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Cut an opening in each cotton candy ball and stick a frog gummy in it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
