Dragon Fruit Jelly In Egg


This is what I made over the weekend to share with my niece and nephews. It's the favorite dessert for most of the kids. If you have time, do make some for your kids. I'm sure they will be more than happy.


To make this, first you have to collect some egg shells (You need to punch a hole at the tip of the egg to remove the egg contents...a bit tricky :P). Clean the shell and keep it dry. Then when you prepare jelly or even pudding, the egg shell will act as container, and you'll get the beautiful jelly in egg shape. Red dragon fruit is a good source of natural coloring to the jelly. Don't you think it's beautiful?

first time reading about using egg shells for jelly! excellent idea :D but.. but...will the egg shells have some bad smell?

daphne said...

what a good idea with the egg shells- how about using easter eggs chocolate moulds? that might be easier?

Little Inbox said...

xin, no, as you need to clean and leave the egg shell dried upfront.
