Step 1: Ingredients
- 9 oz clear plastic cups
- Maraschino Cherries
- Double sided tape
- Oreos crushed up
- 3 oz box of Jello Lime gelatin (this makes 2 monsters)
- black and red 3-D paint
Step 2: JELL-O!
For each of the cups, pour the slightly cooled jell-o into the cup, but be sure to leave about 1/2 inch from the top.
Then refrigerate the the cup of jell-o until it is partially gelled, then take it out of the fridge and using a knife push 2 cherry eyes into the jell-o. Put them back in the fridge until its completely set.
Step 3: Making Scars...the Easy Way
For the eyes, use a knife to make a cavity for each cherry to fit in. Then just push the cherries onto the 2 cavities until they are deep enough.
To make the scars and mouth for the monster, paint them on the plastic cup and let them dry for a while or you could use a hair dryer to speed up the process.
Step 4: Neck Bolts and Hair
Using the double-sided tape, attach 2 of the Rolos to the sides of the cup. Next you can put the mouth and scars on it too.
Pro tip: its fun to let the kids draw the mouth and scars directly on the cup
The final step is to just cover the top of the jell-o with crush Oreos.
Pro tip: the Oreos may get soggy eventually.. so eat them up fast
