Olaf – Frozen Food Themed Idea

He is so stinking cute! I can’t wait to see the movie this month.

My suggestion would be to serve this treat right away, but…This treat can (with some adaptions) be made ahead of time.

Here are my tips, if you want to prepare this treat ahead of time –

  • Hold off on the frosting arms that sit right on top of the Jello until you are ready to serve
  • The jello will need to be refrigerated. Because you’ll need to cover the dish to store it in the refrigerator, you might want to wait on the hair, as well. Otherwise the clear wrap might smudge it
  • It is possible to assemble the Olaf marshmallows and decorate the tops of the marshmallows ahead of time. Note- If stored overnight, the marshmallows will take on some water and be a bit soggy on the bottom

Honestly, you don’t need to fuss too much about the particulars. This adorable Olaf will steal the show, but if your kids are anything like mine, the kids will probably just push Olaf to the side and focus on eating all of that blue Jello.

Olaf Floating in a Pool of Jello {A Frozen Themed Food Idea} | Kid Friendly Things To Do

  • Author: Melissa
  • Prep Time: 20 min.
  • Cook Time: refrigerate until jello is solid
  • Total Time: 53 minute
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • Regular sized marshmallows
  • Mini marshmallows
  • For Jello: Blue Jello (3 oz. package)
  • Summer themed straws, or party drink umbrellas
  • I used individual glass bowls for individual pools, they are 4 inches across the top and they hold 4 oz. of liquid – you could use small plastic clear bowls or small clear cups – keep in mind that Olaf is about 3 inches from top to bottom, so your jello surface needs to be at least that

  • Brown, black, and orange frosting (I used chocolate frosting for the brown
  • A piping bag with a round writing tip

Instructions

Jello: 

  • I just followed the directions on the back of the Gelatin box which was to (in a small bowl) add 1 cup of hot water to the jello powder and let it dissolve, then add 1 cup of cold water 
  • Pour the warm jello – evenly, into 4 separate bowls 
  • Place those in the refrigerator to let the jello solidify

Making Olaf: 

  • 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)
  • I used a small round writing tip for everything 
  • To add a special touch, I decorated each Jello treat with fun summer umbrellas 

Notes

  • Making this Ahead of Time: 
  • As I stated in the post… you can make this ahead, but I would hold off on the frosting arms that sit right on top of the Jello until right before your party.  Because you’ll need to cover Olaf to store him in the refrigerator, hold off on any decoration that might smudge from the clear wrap (like his hair pieces). The water from the jello will eventually water the frosting down to a puddle. If left overnight, the marshmallows will take on some water too, but not too much. 

Storing Olaf – This dessert is best served right away, but if you need to store him – cover the individual cups or bowls with clear wrap and store them in the refrigerator for up to one day. 

*Olaf is about 3 inches from the top to the bottom
