Rainbow Jello

I was one of the last parents to arrive at school the day the sign-up sheet went up for the Easter Party. Never be the last mom to sign up..the only thing left…jello.

I brought jello last time and really wanted to do cupcakes or cookies or something fun. Reluctantly I signed up for jello, again.

But I didn’t make just jello. Oh no, not me. I made JELLO!


I picked up a 6oz box of blue, yellow and red jello plus a box of knox gelatin. To get these fabulous layers, mix the blue jello with an envelope of the knox gelatin. Pour in two cups of boiling water. Dissolve the gelatin. Add 1/2 cup of ice. Stir until thick. Remove any remaining ice cubes and any bubbles that may have formed. Pour into a 9×13 inch pan. Let set in the refrigerator.

Repeat with the yellow jello and pour it over the set blue. Repeat with the red jello and pour it over the yellow. And there you have it, Rainbow Jello.


I won’t go into the whole primary and secondary color thing, but these colors, when stacked upon each other, create other colors. There is not an orange or green layer. It just looks like it when the red and yellow layers touch and then yellow and blue layers touch. Pretty cool.

Oh, and these can be made and cut a day ahead.

This was a surprise!  Thanks for the tip Gretchen!

  1. That’s so pretty!

    • youre right! rainboww

  2. Lovely rainbow Jello squares! What a fun project to take. Good for you for making it funner than cupcakes. 🙂

  3. Yes, so pretty, and yes that is not jello, that is JELLO! 😉
    Love your photos! This is something my son would love! You make it sound so easy, so I’ll try 🙂

  4. awesome!!

    • It looks awsome, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • hel0w!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • what a fantastic idea, looks are everything when it comes to the profesional cooks and that is just the icing on the cake 🙂

    • hey yeah that is really kool. just looking at it is making me very hungry. hey i wonder if you could use other colors too. that would be really kool.

  5. I can’t wait for my little guy to start school so I can make these for his class! I want to make them right now but I don’t think we’d eat them. They look so fun!

    • yeah. that would be KOOL!!

      • thaat is cool wats the recipeeeee

    • i noooo i want the recipeeeeeeeeeeeeee really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  6. LOL, I’m bringing napkins. I have had your jello before, and it’s great…even though it’s just jello, LOL!

  7. WOW!!!!!!!!!!! I like it!

  8. Only you could make Jello so fun. Just be thankful you get to bring homemade goodies. Public schools make you BUY everything!

  9. That’s cool! I love the colors.

  10. I would have been bummed to get Jello, but you really made it the best of it!

  11. I’m not a jello fan at all. However… that just looks like soo much fun! How could you not be happy to eat that?

  12. Hmm… How can I adapt this for Jello shots? 😀

    I agree with a pp. Public schools have really taken the fun out of everything. You can’t bring baked goods but you can bring prepackaged BAKED potato chips – Like those are so much better for you. Weird huh? LOL

    • The public schools do that, because there afraid if you make them, someone will be allergic to something in them. Quite frankly, they just don’t wanna be sued.

      • Many people do not understand “someone will be allergic” could be that someone MAY DIE. Our family deals with multiple allergens, diabetes, and hypoglycemia. The reactions range from itchiness, to stomach cramps, to violent behavior (yes bread can do that), to possible death within minutes. We always have an EPI-pen.

        The schools may be trying to protect themselves, but they are also protecting our children. Purchased items have ingredients listed.

        On a side note: I used to enjoy one person’s contribution to “potlucks”,.. until I saw her kitchen

  13. wow those look amazing!

  14. This looks really neat! I’ll have to try this, my kids would love that!

    I saw this post at http://www.tastespotting.com/page/222/

    when I noticed one of my own was there too! 🙂

  15. OK…officially the COOLEST thing I’ve seen in quite some time…mesmerizing! I literally was staring at it in awe!

  16. those are so cute! I love jello. thats cool that the color just blend like that.

  17. My grandma used to make this, but it was with firmer stripes. I like your way.
    You can add cream cheese and condensed milk to make a “creamy” color that mixes well into your stripes, too.

  18. I love, love, LOVE those photos! That jello is the coolest food ever! Did I mention I love it?

  19. This is…I mean…that’s just…I’m speechless! I’ve been made speechless by Jell-o! I have seen all sorts of jell-o silliness: jell-o aquariums filled with gummi fish, jell-o flags of many nations, and I even love toying with jell-o myself, although I never got farther than jell-o jelly beans for Easter.

    Rainbow knox blox? Genius. Simple. Edible. Pretty. Bouncy. Jell-o.

    I can’t WAIT to make this!

  20. […] Of course, I’m beating myself down for lack of achievement, instead of encouraging myself to DO SOMETHING about it. Or, in the words of a blog I discovered today, Do Better. […]

  21. this is fantastic! i’d be so proud if my mom brought this to school on my behalf. i’m thinking of other color combinations now–!

  22. Awesome job! I love the rainbow effect. 🙂

  23. Super cute!

  24. so fun! i bet the kids loved them…

  25. Wow, if you have to bring jello, that’s the way to bring it!! It looks gorgeous and the pictures are amazing!

  26. Wow,
    It’s a perfect party dessert!

  27. I hate jello but that is totally awesome and now I want to make it!!!

  28. […] Do Better via Serious Eats Sharing is Caring: These icons link to social bookmarking sites where readers […]

  29. This actually looks *good*, and is making me crave jello really badly – a pretty good sign I’m getting sick! But I’m keeping this in mind for when I need a light or just plain silly dessert!

  30. I bet the kids loved the jello the best!

    That is so cool! Thanks for the idea, I have just bookmarked it for Ollie’s first birthday party! x

  31. This is gorgeous! How did you cut it so nicely?

  32. Amelia- just a sharp knife!

  33. The many uses and creative ways of Jell-O are truly amazing. This is so 60’s and 70’s looking … would be great for a retro party!

  34. I was just wondering… why do u put the knox gelitan in as well… can u get the same effect without using it.. and just use the jello boxes?

    • basically, the reason why you use knox jello also is so that the jello is firmer, which makes it a heck of a lot easier to cut into clean lined shapes, like the rectangle of jello above. I have this recipe setting in the fridge at the moment, i’m just passing the time away before the next layer, and I did not use knox gelatin, because i didn’t have any left at home. SO far, it’s turning out perfectly fine.

  35. Menaka- the knox really helps the jello squares stay firm. Much more so than a jello jiggler. I haven’t tried this w/o the knox.

  36. Here through Design Mom. This is awesome!

  37. Found your blog through Design Mom and I LOVE the rainbow jello idea. It’s very similar to knoxblox
    but with a few more steps. I think you might love double decker knox blox too. I’ve made them for my kids for years and jello you can hold is always a big hit!! Hope it’s okay to put the link here for recipe & pictures and it works–I’m a still-learning newbie!:)


  39. i used to make something similar – but it had three colors, plus alternating layers of a jello-yogurt combination that made them opaque. very yummy and pretty.

  40. Funny, I did the same exact thing and took it to my in-laws for Easter and NO ONE touched it. Doesn’t matter what I bring, no one even humors me with a single bite.

    • sorry to hear that! better luck next time!

  41. […] Aqui vocês podem ler as instruções para a receita (em inglês). Uma boa pedida pro feriadão ! […]

  42. How long did you let the jell-o layer sit before adding the next one?? I would hate to screw something up if i might bring it somewhere!!!

  43. 422- it will take about 45 minutes for each layer to set up. Once a layer is firm, you can pour the next layer directly over the top. It will take about 3 hours in total to complete, so plan accordingly. I hope this helps!

  44. If you’ve got 8 hours, and are feeling even more ambitious, try this! Four colours of jello alternated with layers of jelled sweet cream… Yum!

  45. […] found this cool rainbow jello today. Gotta love colorful […]

  46. You add an envelope of knox gelatin to each layer, right? Not just the blue (first) one? Maybe a box of knox comes with 3 envelopes but I wasn’t sure by the directions. LOL, it’s been a VERY long time since I made jello. Thanks for the fun recipe!

  47. Clueless- yep, you add one envelope of knox gelatin to each layer/box of jello. A box of knox comes with 4 envelopes. I hope this helps! Enjoy your jello!

  48. […] Aqui vocês podem ler as instruções para a receita (em inglês). Uma boa pedida pro feriadão ! […]

  49. I make 7 layer jello sometimes, and i like to do it in rainbow order. but, the colors sometimes blend together too much. I love this recipe because it creates the illusion that there is a rainbow. plus, it will take much less time than 7 layers! I’ll try this one next time.

    • Hi! Thank you for a good time when I am bord.

  51. This is fun. Thanks for sharing.

  52. Dear JELLO,
    My name is Ana Carola Cardenas and I work for the Mexican magazine “Le Fourquet: Gourmet Lifestyle”, one of the publications of the Grupo Multimedios ( http://www.multimedios.com.mx ) in Monterrey, Mexico.
    I take the liberty of writing to you to request some high-resolution photographs of JELLO’S Rainbow picture to include them in our magazine. We would love to mention it in our next issue, which will be focused on Colors.
    Best regards,

    Ana Carola Cardenas
    “Le Fourquet”

  53. You people are nuts. Get back to work.

  54. wonderfull work.
    may i ask whta is this knox ? im from barzil, so im not familliar with this (i mean, if the name ;))

  55. Rafael,

    Knox is unflavored gelatin (like Jello, but with no flavor.) It is used to harden the Jello so you can cut it into pieces and pick it up with your fingers.

    • So can you just use any unflavored gelatin then?:) Am not sure I will find Knox in the Philippines.:D


  56. could you just use english jelly?

  57. that looks cool i have to try that when i get home!!

  58. Esther- I’m not sure what english jelly is, so I don’t know if it would work or not.

  59. This looked almost too pretty to eat! Thanks for the recipe. Your pictures are awesome!

  60. This is so damn cool.

    This would be great for my Gay Movie Night.


  61. So cool! I made it for my friend, for his birthday party (as addition to my present).
    He’s gay and just come out this year…that had good and bad sides, so he was bit under the weather lately…this jello cheer him so much he couldn’t stop smiling.
    Sometime we need support, and even little things can help 🙂

  63. Do you think it would work if I did Yellow, Blue, and Red, so I get green and purple instead of orange??

  64. Kaylee- absolutely! The possibilities are endless.

  65. Thank you Karen! It did work, but with the yellow in the middle it makes it look better, more definite colors. If that makes sense!

  66. I will definately be doing this for my preschool students. A great snack when we’re teaching primary colors!!

  67. British (thanks 😛 ) Jelly is the same thing as jello, perhaps the mix of gelatin is different but it would work just the same

  88. oh:D

  89. wow thats a gr8 way to make jello become JELLO did u think of the idea thow or did u get it of a website. anyway that doesnt matter i decided to try it for myself and it works but i found if you let the colours on ly half set the run into each other more and you can see orange and green way easier and if u put red at the bottom you get purple then when set simply cut the red of from the bottom leaving purple. but to make it even easier for u buy red orange yellow green blue and purple coloured jello cause i know they sell that in australia

    • Justine, you might want to make sure you know how to spell before you start throwing out insults about peoples’ intelligence.
      Also, get your facts straight. Maybe it’s called Jelly there, but in the US it is known as Jello, for the brand of the same name.

  104. This jelly is the most amazing thing I have ever come across. I owe you my life for oppening my mind to this extrodinary discovery. I would like to own a rainbow jelly factory.

  105. That rainbow jello looks really pretty ,and I love that Blue and Green color by eachother they match .so do red and yellow and orange. It looks veryyyyy mushyyyy and its probably like those one air freshener gel things . Becuse I was at my cousins house and it busted and we had to pick it up and it was mushyyy.

  139. Just a quick tip to add one more layer if you are doing a unit on rainbows for school. Start with a purple layer first, then blue, yellow and red. We are doing a science unit on rainbows in Kindergarten and are serving this to the kids (with the added purple). When we serve it we are also going to add a dollop of cool whip for the “clouds”.

  140. Susanne, that is an awesome tip! I bet the kids really learn alot about color spectrums, and it’s fun too 🙂

    Karen – I was hoping to use your picture of rainbow jello in my blog. I’m explaining the different types of rainbow jello, either with using cool whip mixed with jello as “separators” or by adding one color onto another (like yours). I was thinking of including a link below your picture to your blog. Please let me know if you would prefer that I didn’t use your picture! Thanks!!

  141. Jello is one of the few treats everyone in my multi-allergy sugar sensitive family can enjoy. Although I have jello molds, we have had little success with more than one color for the Jigglers. I never thought to add Knox or to use cold water, like from the regular quick set method! Thank you!

  170. Hi guys! Great idea!

    Couple of questions:

    1) If I did want to make this with no chemicals, what would you suggest? Cranberry juice and agar agar, etc?

    2) How do you cut it so exactly and get it out of the pan cleanly. That’s the part of these things I usually mess up. Any tricks for creating (and removing from the pan) perfect slices?

    Thanks, Gerry

    • I still want to know the answers to these questions- so if anyone has any tips. Thanks!

      • PS Does is bottom layer kind of “air-bubbly?” What if I poured red first, then yellow, then blue, then cut the pieces with a ruler (?) then inverted the pan (now the red would be on top). Would that lead to cleaner and more perfect jello pieces/squares? Thank you.

      • I too have the same questions as you! Also, I am you- posting 2 years later! I wonder if anyone will answer.. PS I love you. Sincerely, -you again.
