Rainbow JELL-O is not new. I had seen it many times, but was intimidated. It looked like A LOT of work. With spring here I decided I wanted to make a fun colorful treat and put my big girl pants on to brave the gelatin rainbow.
Guess what? It really isn’t that bad. The key is using a timer and it is basicaly like clock work. First you are going to need JELL-O. Decide on your colors. I opted to leave out the white layers you see between the colors in some recipes because I wanted to use all the colors of the rainbow and lets face it, that would have been too darn many layers. You may have to visit multiple stores to find all the colors. You only need the small boxes (I could only find blue and purple in large).
- Six 3oz. boxes of JELL-O in rainbow colors
- Knox Unflavored Gelatin
- 9 x 13 pan
Decide what order you want your colors in. I started with purple on the bottom and ended with red so it would be in true rainbow order, red, orange, yellow, green, blue purple.
Mix 1 package of JELL-O with 1 tsp Knox gelatin and 1 cup boiling water. Cool and pour into pan; refrigerate about 30 minutes to set up in the fridge before you move on to the next layer. While waiting for your JELL-O to set, make the next layer and let it cool on the counter.
Continue repeating layers until you are done. Use a timer so you can set it and forget it!
Once finished, cover and refrigerate overnight to set. Then just slice and serve!
We love topping it with whipped cream to look like a little cloud at the end of the rainbow. I seriously could not get over how beautiful each bite was!
What do you think? Will you brave rainbow JELL-O?
