Bleeding Gums Jello Treats


If you like sugar as much as I do, then you'll love these tasty summer Jello treats. I used Strawberry Jello (real and artificial flavouring), but any reddish variety, such as cherry, will do (for the "bleeding" effect).

Despite actually being a vegetable, and consisting of 92% H2O, watermelons were ranked the second most healthy fruit by a recent study (the most healthy was Guava[!]). Chop up some of that luscious pink pulp (kinda looks like gums, don't it?) and fill your glass receptacles about half full of the veggiefruit.

Fill the glasses up with the Jello, leaving a little space at the top for the miniature marshmallow "teeth".

Let chill for a suitable length of time and--Presto! You've got yourself a refreshingly cool batch of Bleeding Gum Jello Treats. Don't forget to brush afterwards. You also might want to include a strand of (peppermint) dental floss at the bottom of each cup--as a friendly reminder to floss. Enjoy!

Stumbled upon your blog today, you have made a believer out of me! Such an eloquent and well written journal in the cyberland of narcisstic pre-teen babble. My God even prose! Keep it up Sir Flatlander.

Hey Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, thank you for the encouraging praise. Circumstances have conspired to give me the time and inclination (read: neurosis) to do some blogging, and it is always great to hear that new readers are enjoying the site. Happy surfing!

Anonymous 1 is glad to have someone who agrees with me about this bolg site! I'll have to try the dessert although some of my gourmand friends will probably be disgusted with the name and refuse to sample it. What a pity - all the more for me!

Thanks again, Anonymous 1.

You could always call the dish, "Magenta Marshmallow Melon Marvel" or MMMM for short.

Bon Appetite!
