Rainbow Jello Recipe

Tips and Tricks

  • The flavors of gelatin are easily adaptable to your preferences and occasion. Try different flavors of red and pink for Valentine’s Day, reds and green for Christmas, purple and orange for Halloween, and red and blue for any patriotic holiday. 
  • Let the layers completely set before adding the next. If you add another layer while the layer underneath is still soft, it can get craters and swirl into the fresh layer. 
  • To help keep the milk jell-o liquid, you can place the bowl or measuring cup inside a larger bowl filled with moderately hot water. This will let it cool down from boiling, but keep it warm enough to stay liquid.
  • Pour the jell-o onto the layer beneath it by pouring onto the back of a spoon. This softens the stream of liquid so it doesn’t pockmark or form craters in the layer beneath it. 

Storing Leftovers

Store in the fridge either in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap for 5-7 days.
