It's orange mandarin jello with a hand smack in the middle. Of course, it's not a REAL hand - it's an edible jello hand.
This is how we made this jello-rific recipe dish: My daughter held open a plastic glove and I pored apx. 1 cup of pre-made grape/cherry jello (add 1/2 tsp. of knox to the jello - so it firms up) inside and fastened the top with an unused rubber band. We placed the jello hand in the refrigerator and let it sit in there overnight. The next day we cut open the platic hand with a knife and placed the jello hand on top of the orange jello that is firm (we made the orange jello according to the box and added 1 can of mandarin oranges to the jello). I then put some gummy worms around the edge of the jello bowl to give it a colorful, yet creepy look to it.
