Rainbow Jell-O Easter Eggs

AuthoradminCategory, , , CuisineCooking MethodDifficultyIntermediate

Looking for a fun edible craft to make with your kids this weekend? With a little bit of patience (each layer has to set) you can make these Rainbow Jell-O Easter Eggs! The patience thing is always hard for me, I'm a quick results kind of gal...this project is totally worth it though and the bonus is you all get to eat these beautiful eggs.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 minsCook Time4 hrs 5 minsTotal Time4 hrs 10 mins
 4 packages of Jell-O
 sour cream or plain greek yogurt
 plastic Easter eggs
 egg carton
 syringes
 cooking oil
1

Pierce the bottoms of each plastic Easter egg with a scissor. Adults should do this part. Make the hole big enough to use the syringe.

2

Prepare Jell-O flavors, each in separate bowls. Use only 1/2 cup of boiling water per flavor to dissolve the gelatin.

3

Generously oil the inside of each egg. This will help Jell-O egg removal.

4

If your plastic eggs have holes on the tops you will need to add 1 teaspoon of oil to each compartment of the egg carton, Place this in the fridge for 5 minutes. This will make it so the Jell-O does not leak out.

5

Place the eggs, top side down into the egg carton.

6

Fill a syringe with some Jell-O and start filling the eggs with a thin layer. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes or until the layer is set. Continue this process until the eggs are filled.

7

You can add a little bit of sour cream or yogurt to the Jell-O as you go to make the color lighter and opaque. Feel free to experiment!

8

To remove Jell-O eggs from the plastic shell, run them under some warm water. This will help loosed them from the edges.
