Polyjuice Potion Jelly Mold (non-alcoholic)

Polyjuice Potion Gelatin - set a cutesy little mold, garnished with smiling gummy worms . . .

Here's a quick remix of our old pal, Polyjuice Potion Jelly Shot.  And this one's non-alcoholic, for the kiddlos.  Looking for something more, well, BOOZETASTIC?  Don't fuss - just click here for the alcoholic version!


Massive spooky XOXOX's to you all!  M.

Polyjuice Potion Jelly Shots

Ginger Ale mixture
1 cup ginger ale
1 envelope plain gelatin

Pineapple mixture
1 cup canned pineapple juice (fresh won't work - the enzymes in fresh pineapple interfere with the gelatin)
1 envelope plain gelatin

Lime mixture
1/2 cup water
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup lime sherbet, melted

First, prep the mold (I used a 3-cup volume mini bundt pan) by lightly spraying with
 cooking spray.  Then wipe the mold cavities out with a clean paper towel. This method will leave just the slightest residue, which will help unmold the gelatin without affecting the taste or appearance.  


Prepare the three gelatin mixes as follows:

  • Ginger Ale: Pour the ginger ale in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  
  • Pineapple: Pour the pineapple juice in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  
  • Lime: Pour the water in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  Stir in the melted sherbet.

Pour each mixture into a separate bowl and refrigerate until partially set.  (Just starting to change from liquid to solid - about 20 to 25 minutes.)

Give each mixture a quick stir.  It should be a thick, but still liquid.  Clumpy is fine for this method!! Drop alternating spoonfuls of the three mixtures into the pan, until all the gelatin has been transferred.  Refrigerate until fully set (at least 6 hours or overnight - extra time is needed for the gelatins to bond).



To unmold, fill a large container or sink with warm water (not too hot!).  With clean fingers, loosen the gelatin around the edges of the pan/mold.  Next, dip the mold almost to the edge into the warm water for just a few seconds (10 seconds is usually a good start for larger molds, and 5 for individual). Dry the bottom of the mold with a towel and check the edges to ensure they have loosened up.  (If not, repeat the dip for just a few seconds.) Place your serving plate on top of the mold and invert.
