Olaf From the Movie Frozen Jello Dessert – A Fun Food
I have been meaning to get around to posting this idea of Olaf floating in a pool of Jello dessert. After a week of trying to find Ticonderoga sharpened pencils, Prang colored pencils, and all of the other 5,000 insane items on back to school supply lists…(I lost a week of my life, I tell ya!), I finally have time to post it! Here’s how I made this Marshmallow Olaf, and the blue jello!
Updated, thanks to a reader for asking about this much needed info.: A small container of Jello (3 oz.) will get you (4) 1/2 – or 4 oz. cup servings. The same is true if you go with the Knox Gelatin method. If you use a large box of blue Jell-O, you’ll squeeze out (8) 1/2 cup servings – or 4 oz. servings.
- Regular sized marshmallows
- Mini marshmallows
- Brown, black, and orange frosting (I used chocolate frosting for the brown – follow my tip below to get true black color)
- A piping bag with a round tip
- For Jello: Blue Hawaiian Punch, and Box of Knox Unflavored Gelatin
- **OR – Alternate Jello – use a blue box of jello – the color will be much darker, though
- Summer themed straws, or party drink umbrellas
- I used individual glass bowls for individual pools – to conserve money, you could use clear plastic cups, like Chinet
- For the blue jello: I used Knox Unflavored Gelatin, and Blue Hawaiian Punch
- I just followed the directions on the back of the Gelatin box
- Once the jello had set up, and I was ready to tackle Olaf,
- I grabbed a regular sized marshmallow
- I used scissors to cut it into 3 pieces
- I used one piece for the head, and one for his bum – that one was turned sideways!
- I then used mini marshmallows for the middle portion of Olaf, and feet
- Then I decorated him with frosting that I had colored black (buttons, eyes, and mouth), some orange frosting (carrot nose), and brown (hair, eyebrows, and arms)
- To get a deep black color, start with chocolate or brown frosting. Add your black coloring to the brown color, and you won’t end up with gray
- I used a round tip for everything 🙂
- To add a special touch, I used fun summer straws that I found at the Dollar Tree
Equipment You Might Want: I’m so excited that I found the palm tree straws in the middle of winter!
