Thanksgiving Jello

When I was a boy, I had the idea to put plastic cowboys and indians in the Thanksgiving Jello to commemorate the pilgrims and indians' first dinner together. The first year I was married, we made this Jello for my in-laws, to the utter surprise of everyone, when they started to pull plastic men out of their mouths. We got such a reaction out of everyone that we hadn't done it since-- until now.

My platoon of soldiers wait for their surprise attack!



  • 1 large box Jello or similar gelatin, any flavor
  • 1 can cool whip
  • 1 bag plastic toys
Mix the gelatin to package directions and pour into a 9x13 pan. Place the plastic toys (we couldn't find cowboys and indians, so we used army men this time) in the gelatin and let harden overnight. Spread cool whip on top of the gelatin ensuring to cover any pieces sticking out of the gelatin. Serve chilled, and be prepared for the most surprised guests ever.
