Makes about 24 shapes
2 packages (8 ounces each) gelatin (any flavors can be used but orange, grape and lime are good for Halloween)
2½ cups boiling water (do not add cold water)
Halloween cookie cutters
Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl for 3 minutes until completely dissolved. Pour into a 13x9-inch pan.
Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm (gelatin does not stick to finger when touched).
Dip bottom of pan in warm water about 15 seconds. Cut gelatin into decorate shapes using 2-inch cookie cutters, making sure to cut through the gelatin to the bottom of the pan. Remove from pan. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
Note: For small children, using smaller cookie cutters may make the treats easier to handle.
