Black-Cherry Bats
  • 2 3-ounce packages black-cherry gelatin (dry)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup grape juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Citrus Orange Pumpkins
  • 2 3-ounce packages orange gelatin (dry)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (no pulp) or lemonade
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

    1. Empty both packages of dry gelatin powder into a large bowl. In medium saucepan, stir together water and juice; bring to a full boil then remove pan from heat. Pour hot juice mixture slowly into bowl, stirring constantly with a large spoon. Keep stirring for two minutes or until all granules have dissolved. Add lemon juice and stir to mix.
    2. Pour mixture into a 9-inch round or square pan and place pan in refrigerator. Chill for at least 3 hours or until firm. Cut into squares with a knife, or into bat-shapes with cookie cutters dipped in hot water. If pieces are hard to get out, set the entire pan for a minute onto a cookie sheet filled with a quarter-inch of hot water. Keep chilled.
    3. For the Citrus Orange Pumpkins, repeat the directions: Use pumpkin-shaped cookies cutters as desired.
