Jell-O Creepy Jigglers Hands

Makes 2 hands.

• 2 1/2 c. boiling water

• 4 (3-oz.) pkg. Jell-O, any flavor

• Nonstick cooking spray

Stir boiling water into gelatin in medium bowl at least 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Refrigerate 10 minutes to cool.

While gelatin is cooling, soak 2 clean disposable gloves in warm water; rinse well. Squeeze gloves dry, and spray insides with nonstick cooking spray (the gloves will be very difficult to remove if you don't spray them). Slowly pour gelatin into each glove; tightly tie the top of each glove with a twist tie or rubber band. Place on baking sheet and refrigerate 4 hours or until set.

Cut gloves away from the "hands" with scissors. Add to a punch or place on a plate for decoration.

Spooky add-ins: Place a couple of gummy worms into the fingers of gloves before filling with gelatin. Or place a strawberry slice in each fingertip before filling to create "fingernails."
