How to make sparkling Jello

Did you know that you can make Jello that fizzes? Jello used to make special boxes of Jello it called "Sparkling Jello," then everyone figured out that they didn't need a $2 package of Jello because they could make it from the regular Jello.

This was one of my favorite things during the holidays as a child. It is super easy to make, all you will need is
6 OZ package of Jello
cold club soda- really it needs to be cold so refrigerate it the night before
boiling water
Stir 1.5 cups of boiling water into your Jello. Refrigerate the Jello for 15 minutes. Stir in 2 cups of cold club soda. Then refrigerate until firm. Now your guests will have a fun surprise when their Jello fizzes in their mouths! If you want to add fruit to your fizzy Jello, refrigerate the Jello for 30 minutes after you add the COLD club soda and then stir your fruits in. Refrigerate until firm.

Haha, my mom used to make this all the time... I never knew that Jello actually marketed it... What a strange reverse life we live. :)

I can't believe this is the first time I've every heard of fizzy jello. I guess I missed it when it was in the stores. Thanks for the recipe!
