Remember Knox blox from childhood? I remember being totally in awe of this colorful, wiggly magic gelatine that you could eat with your hands. The version from my youth was made with sugary packaged junk but I just discovered that you can make this super fun dessert with fruit juice! While juice is still high in sugar, at least it's the natural variety (if you choose a 100% juice option) and I feel better making a sweet treat for my son without processed refined sugar and artificial dyes. Additionally, some juices do provide vitamins so the calories aren't completely empty.

I stole this recipe right from the Knox ® Gelatine box but I quartered it. I only have one kid and he certainly doesn't need the 42 servings that the full recipe yields. We made these together, which I angled as a science experiment and cooking lesson. Fun and delicious.

Fruit Juice Knox Blox

Ingredients:
1 cup fruit juice (any variety will work but choose one that is sweet - apple or grape work well, or our fave Trader Joes Cherry Cider)
1 envelope Knox ® Unflavored Gelatine

2. While that is heating, pour the remaining juice into a small bowl or measuring cup and sprinkle the gelatine on top. Let stand one minute.

3. Add the hot juice to the softened gelatine and stir until completely dissolved.

4. Pour into a glass or metal container (I used a 7x5" glass storage container) and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.
