Edible Fish Bowl

I remember making this years and years ago for a friend’s children. It was pretty cool (I thought) so my kids and I thought we would make it again for some friends. It’s super easy and it’s fun to do!

What you will need:
* any kind of clear bowl. We used a fish bowl (clean, of course!)
* blue jello
* gummy fish
* candy rocks

Put a layer of candy rocks in the bottom of the bowl.

Make the Jello according to the package for Jello jigglers.

Cut the Jello into squares and layer the Jello and gummy fish. You can put as many layers as you would like depending on how much you would like.

It’s that simple!

Another way to do it…

Pour the candy rocks into the bowl. Make the Jello according to the package (regular Jello this time, not jigglers.) Pour half of the Jello over the rocks and place in the refrigerator to let the Jello set. Cut a small slice in the Jello and place a gummy fish in the Jello. Repeat as much as you would like. Pour more Jello over the top and put back into the refrigerator to set. Repeat until it’s as full as you would like.

Just a hint… I used chocolate rocks. I was going to make it by pouring the Jello over the rocks but the Jello dissolved the chocolate and it was a big, gross mess. So candy rocks are definitely best.

Eat and enjoy!
