Knox Blox

March 28th, 2011. Filed under: Monday's Musings, Nancy's Recipe Box.

  Knox Blox were a big thing when my kids were young.  You just know that picking up Jello with your fingers is fun.  I had two recipes – one that used the unflavored gelatin and fruit juice and one that used the unflavored gelatin with fruit flavored gelatin.  I usually made the latter because it was always easier because I always had the needed ingredients on hand.

I’m not sure why I’ve been thinking about Knox Blox lately.  Maybe I’m in my second childhood.    Anyway, I’ve decided to make some in the morning.  In the mean time, I’ll share the recipe with you.  If you or your children haven’t experienced them, then jump in and make some with me.


  • 4 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 3 pkg (4 serving size) fruit flavor gelatin (can be sugar free)
  • 4 cups boiling water

In large bowl mix unflavored gelatin with flavored gelatin; add boiling water and stir until completely dissolved.  Pour into 13″ x 9″ baking pan and chill until firm.  To serve, cut into 1-inch squares.  Makes 9 dozen Blox.
