This is a chunk left over after I made some more jello treats (Han Solo and Easter Island, as before) this time with about 60% of the water called for in the regular recipe, so it’s much stiffer. (This was ~2 cups of boiling water and then 1/2 cup ice water aded in after dissolving the mix; normal recipe calls for 4 cups. It’s important to use as much ice as you can in that 1/2 cup to cool it down or you will lose quite a bit to evaporation, which matters a bit when you are using small molds)
