— Chef's Note —

"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.

How to Make Dinosaur Eggs

— Ingredients —

1 package Jell-O
(or more)
cold water
1 1/2 cup cold water
(per package)
tonic water
1/2 cup tonic water
(per package)
6 eggs
edible dinosaurs
6 edible dinosaurs

— Instructions —

  1. 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.
  2. Wash the inside of each eggshell thoroughly, and set on paper towels to dry.
  3. Empty the contents of 1 Jell-O package into a large heat-safe bowl.
  4. Boil 1 cup of the water.
  5. Pour the boiling water into the bowl, and mix until the powder has dissolved.
  6. Stir in tonic water and remaining cold water, and set aside.
  7. Repeat for remaining Jell-O packages.
  8. Place a tiny edible dinosaur (or a similar treat) inside each eggshell.
  9. Using a spoon, fill each egg with Jell-O mixture.
  10. Set filled eggs in an egg carton and place in the fridge to harden.
  11. Once Jell-O has become firm (at least 1 hour), carefully crack open eggs for a Jurassic surprise!
