These silly orange wigglers use just four basic ingredients, which makes them a treat for both you and your kids.


1½ cups 100% tropical mango juice blend, divided (you can also use mango juice or orange juice)
1 cup frozen mango
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


Before you begin: Wash your hands.

  1. In a blender, blend together 1 cup of juice and the frozen fruit until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally to break up any frothy bubbles.
  2. Meanwhile, place the remaining ½ cup juice in a large bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice and let stand 1 minute. Add the hot juice mixture and stir, or gently whisk, until the gelatin completely dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar.
  3. Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8-inch pan or dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Cut into 24, 2 x 1⅓-inch rectangles (use an off-set spatula to remove them from the pan).
