Let's have some fun with gelatin, you guys! I personally don't think that jigglers should be reserved just for the kiddos, and here's why: You can set nearly any liquid into a gelled state with very little effort and serve layered juicy, fruity squares of flair for your next book club, cocktail party, or even a playdate.
