St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Jello

Here’s another holiday DIY recipe that’s perfect for either St. Paddy’s Day or your next LGBT meeting/coming out party :)!

When my mom was little, her mom would use this method of color-blocking jello by tilting parfait glasses in the fridge, alternating between red and green, to jellify each layer of jello before adding the next. This gives the jello a colorful pattern, perfect for what my grandma considered a “fancy” dessert.

This is my updated version, made with only three colors of jello and green tinted whipped cream. They’re adorable in individual mason jars for Tuesday, and so simple to make!

Make the Rainbow

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet yellow jello
  • 1 packet red jello
  • 1 packet blue jello
  • Heavy cream
  • Green food coloring
  1. Make each jello mixture according to the directions on the box (2 cups boiling water, 2 cups cold water).
  2. Set a small mason jar or juice glass, tilted, in a muffin tin. Pour in red jello about 1/4 of the way up.
  3. Chill the muffin tin to set the red jello. Then add yellow jello with the glasses tilted the other way. Lastly, after the yellow has chilled, add the blue jello.
  4. Whip the heavy cream and tint with a couple drops of green food coloring (optional). Pipe a little decoration:)

Enjoy! <3, B
