We were sent a range of ready made jellys from the Hartley collection however we were also sent packs of jelly, the packs of jelly are my favorite to make as it means I can create fun shaped jelly when I allow it to set in molds. The flavours which we were able to use when making our monster creations were Fangtastic Strawberry and Shocking Lemon and Slime. Maxwell and I were excited to start making our creation. As Maxwell is just 2 I wanted to make creating monsters easy for him.
Maxwell's first monster was decorated by Maxwell himself. Maxwell used milk chocolate buttons to create the monsters eyes, strawberry laces to create the monsters smile and Maxwell used icing to create the monsters green, spooky eyes. The jelly which we used was the Hartley powder type and we put it into containers and allowed it to set overnight before we decorated it.
Maxwell and I wanted to create something a little different so we thought it would be fun to create a scary witch. We used Hartleys ready made jelly to create the witches hair. We created her hair by mixing up the ready made jelly and spreading the jelly around the witches head.
Maxwell then went on to give the witch earrings using chocolate buttons and icing and he gave her big red teeth using icing again. I have to say his witch turned out to look quite friendly instead of scary however everyone loves a friendly witch at Halloween?
Maxwell and I loved creating our Halloween monsters and witches and we will be making sure we continue to make fun creations out of jelly. Not only is the jelly super tasty and easy to make, it is also a desert which is not expensive to make.
