Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Mix jelly powder and water in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1-1/2 min.; stir until jelly powder is completely dissolved.
  • Set aside 12 of the marshmallows. Add remaining marshmallows to jelly; stir until well blended. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. or until marshmallows are partially melted. Stir with wire whisk until marshmallows are completely melted. Pour into 9-in. square pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray.
  • Refrigerate 45 min. or until set. Run sharp knife around edges of pan to loosen jelly layer from pan. Starting at 1 edge, roll up jelly layer tightly. Cut into 12 (3/4-in.-thick) strips. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to decorate.
  • Unroll each about 1 in. Stand 1 of the reserved marshmallows on unrolled portion of each spiral for the "snail's body," securing with frosting. Insert 2 pieces of licorice into each marshmallow for "antennae," securing with additional frosting, if needed.

To Double

Prepare jelly mixture as directed, doubling all ingredients. Pour into 13x9-in. pan. Refrigerate as directed. For ease in handling, cut jelly mixture in half crosswise before rolling up. Roll each half separately to form 2 rolls. Cut each roll into 12 slices. Decorate as directed. Makes 24 servings, 1 snail each.


Kids will have fun with this new creation using JELL-O! This hand to mouth snack is a cross between a fruit-roll and a gummi all wrapped into one.

Visual AHA!

Show some of these on a bed of crushed cookies (Oreo or Nilla) or on top of the Orange Dream Garden or the Layered Jell-O Flower box.
