Lemon filled Jello

With the South African summer in full swing with lots of sunshine and loads of humidity, you need a refreshing snack. If you’ve invited your friends over for a poolside get-together or braai, you want snacks at the ready. Lemon is a universal refresher and these Lemony Jelly Cups are great for those hot day occasions. Not only are they easy to make, but you can get creative with the fruits and toppings too. It’s a snack that’s as tasty for the grown-ups as they are for the kids frolicking around the pool.

The best thing about this recipe is that ready-made jello is perfect and all you need to think about is how many chocolate and sweet pieces you want in each cup. They are best made a day ahead of time so that they set properly. Also, with many holidays, birthdays and themed parties, you can decorate them as much as you’d like. Why not stick one of those cocktail umbrellas in your Lemony Jelly Cups and create an island theme while at the pool?
