I saw some really CUTE Edible Easter Grass at Target for only $2 and incorporated it into an easy Jello recipe for a contest. I'm pleased with it, and I think kids would get a kick out of it.
Jello Easter Nest
2-3 ounce boxes Lemon Jello
3 cups boiling water
1/2 of a 12 ounce Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
1-8 ounce container Frozen Whipped Topping, defrosted
1-1 ounce Edible Easter Grass candy
3 marshmallow chicks
In a medium saucepan, boil the water. Stir in the lemon jello and combine until disolved. Add in the Lemonade Concentrate and stir until combined. Pour the lemon mixture in a medium, covered bowl and refrigerate for 3 hours. The Jello should be cool and loosely set. Fold in the defrosted Whipped Topping. Pour the lemon/whipped topping mixture into a 6 cup round, ring mold. Allow the jello mold to refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours. Set the base of the jello mold in some warm water to ease unmolding the Jello. Invert the molded Jello on a plate. Place the edible Easter Grass in the center of the ring. Top with 3 marshmallow chicks.
