"Oh my God. Do you know what this is? This is a dinosaur egg. The dinosaurs are breeding." - Dr. Alan Grant
I was inspired to make these because of the green Jell-O scene in the original Jurassic Park. Technically, you only need 1 package of Jell-O to make these, but more flavors means more colors, so...
They're a little messy to actually eat, but cracking them open to find a prize is so much fun. Plus, they glow in the dark under a black light.
- Using a sharp knife or your fingers, break off the top of each egg and pour its contents into a bowl. (You can use the raw egg for another recipe or store it in the fridge for later.
- Wash the inside of each eggshell thoroughly, and set on paper towels to dry.
- Empty the contents of 1 Jell-O package into a large heat-safe bowl.
- Boil 1 cup of the water.
- Pour the boiling water into the bowl, and mix until the powder has dissolved.
- Stir in tonic water and remaining cold water, and set aside.
- Repeat for remaining Jell-O packages.
- Place a tiny edible dinosaur (or a similar treat) inside each eggshell.
- Using a spoon, fill each egg with Jell-O mixture.
- Set filled eggs in an egg carton and place in the fridge to harden.
- Once Jell-O has become firm (at least 1 hour), carefully crack open eggs for a Jurassic surprise!
