Rainbow Jello

Under the rainbow (jello) you will find a pot of gold.

I was thinking in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday, some rainbow jello would be a fun way to get into the Irish Leprechaun-y spirit. I blogged this Jello about a year ago, and I still think it’s just as cool, and more importantly, your kids will dig it!

Rainbow JELLO!

1 – 6oz. Box of Red Jello
1 – 6oz. Box of Yellow Jello
1 – 60z. Box of Blue Jello
1 – Box of Knox Gelatin (use one envelope per color)

Mix the blue box with one envelope of knox gelatin. Pour in 2 Cups of Boiling Water to dissolve the gelatin. Add 1/2 Cup of Ice. Stir until thick. Remove any remaining ice cubes along with any bubbles that may have formed. Pour into a 9 x13 inch pan. Let it set in the refrigerator.

Repeat with the yellow jello and pour it over the set blue. Repeat with the red jello and pour it over the yellow.

Then Voila! With only three layers you will be surprised to see a whole rainbow of colors…that jiggle!

ps. As far as the gold goes…sorry, you’re on your own.

    I have never been able to make a successful jello. I can make a mean crème caramel in a water bath, but jello? No can do.

    This may be a dumb question – but do you add a package of gelatin to the other colors, as well as the blue ?
    Thanks – can’t wait to try this it looks great !

      Yes you do! Thank you for bringing this up. I actually posted it a few years back, and I’m about to make them again. 

      I will change it in the recipe so it’s more clear. Thanks!

    Fab idea, would be great for kids parties! Just a question, how much gelatine is in an envelope? We only get big boxes of gelatine here so I need to measure it out!

    Do you let each color set before you put a new one on top?
