Rainbow Jello Cups

by Jenna Gleason

These jello cups are cheap and fun to make! They take some time to make, but it's worth it.


6 Packs of 3 oz Jello (grape, blue raspberry, lime/green apple, lemon/pineapple, orange/peach, cherry/raspberry)

6 Cups of boiling water

Whip cream, sprinkles, gold flakes (optional)

Clear plastic cups


(5-10 minutes to make, 20-40 minutes to solidify in fridge)

(Total time 2-4 hours)

1. Boil 1 ½ Cups of water. Pour grape mixture into water and stir until it dissolves.

Tip: Do this in a bowl so it's easy to pour.

2. To speed up the process, add ½ Cup of ice and stir until dissolved (optional). Next, pour the mixture into each cup evenly; about 3-4 tablespoons depending on the size of the cup.

Tip: Eyeball it to see how many layers will fit in each cup. If you have extra, layer it in a container.

3. Place the cups in the fridge for 20-45 minutes or until hardened. To speed up the process, place the cups in your freezer.

4. Repeat the first 3 steps for each layer of jello.

5. Decorate according to the occasion. For instance on St. Patty’s Day, add whip cream and gold flakes. Have fun!
