Let me get a bubonic moose nose omelet with cockroach paste and mouse jelly. And with egg whites.
HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, 2012
First off, what on earth is mouse jelly?! My first assumption was that it was mice set in jelly. After a bit of research, the dish doesn’t look like it contains any mice at all. It really just looks like a bunch of squiggly lines set in jelly. Now, I know it’s a made up dish in the movie but I’m really curious to know what the intention was. If anyone has an idea, please let me know!
For this recipe for mouse jelly, I’m creating what I first assumed mouse jelly to look like. This is so much fun to do with your kids and it really doesn’t take much time set. You can get creative and purchase different molds so you can set spiders, ghosts, or even skulls in jelly. To keep outer jelly clear, it’s only flavored with vanilla and sweetened with sugar. You can get more creative with the flavor of the mice. In this case, I flavored it with coconut milk. This recipe is nothing mind-blowing but it’s so much fun and I think that’s especially important during the Halloween season! My nephews had such a kick from making and eating this recipe so I hope you and your friends and family enjoy it as well.
You can find the mice mold at most craft and bakery stores but I purchased mine online on Amazon.
