Easy Rainbow Jello Jigglers
Enjoy making these fun and beautiful Rainbow Jello Jigglers that taste delicious and are perfect as party treats or snacks!
- 8 cups boiling water
- 1 box grape JELL-O gelatin (purple), 3oz
- 1 box berry blue JELL-O gelatin (blue), 3oz
- 1 box lime JELL-O gelatin (green), 3oz
- 1 box island pineapple JELL-O gelatin (yellow), 3oz
- 1 box orange JELL-O gelatin (orange), 3oz
- 1 box cherry JELL-O gelatin (red), 3oz
- 1½ cups full-fat vanilla yogurt
- cooking spray
- Place 6 empty containers on the table with a capacity of more than 1¼ cups of water. Add each gelatin mix into individual containers. Add 1¼ cups of boiling water into each container and stir to dissolve.
- Spray some cooking oil on a 9x13 pan. This will help the jello to release later and you won't be able to taste any of the spray.
- Now we'll start layering the jellos and we'll start with the purple jello. Separate half of the jello into another container, around ¾ cup. Pour one half into the pan and place the pan in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. We want it to partially set before adding the next layer.
- In the meantime, add 1½ tablespoon of yogurt to the remaining half of the purple jello. Stir well until the yogurt has fully dissolved without any lumps.
- When 15 minutes is up, take the pan out from the refrigerator and do a touch test. Touch the jello very gently with a fingertip and lift it immediately. If it sticks to your finger and leaves a slight impression on the jello, it's good to go. Add the purple jello mixed with yogurt very gently as we don't want to break the partially set purple jello. Lower your container and pour slowly if you have to. Once done, place the pan back into the refrigerator for another 15 minutes.
- Repeat this process for the remaining layers. Once all 12 layers are done, let the jello set in the refrigerator overnight.
- Cut to desired shapes and enjoy!
- As the remaining jellos outside get colder while waiting for the layers to set in the refrigerator, you might need to check on the jello layers as they might take less than 15 minutes to reach the partially set state.
