We don’t usually do much around our house to “celebrate” St. Patrick’s Day… but I figure that any day I can eat something rainbow colored, with a chocolate coin on top is a good day in my book!
I’ve posted Rainbow Jello before, in fact it’s one of my favorite (and most popular) posts. This is simply a mini version, dressed up for St. Patrick’s Day with a chocolate gold coin.
~ How to Make Rainbow Jello ~
You’ll need 1 small box of jello in each color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple).
1 large container of cool whip (you may use sour cream or yogurt in place of the cool whip).
You might notice I skipped yellow for these because I wasn’t sure I’d be able to fit 6 colors in these small glasses. The glasses shown are 5 oz. juice glasses, you’ll have to make adjustments as needed depending on the size of glasses you use.
Follow these directions for each layer…
Chose the color you want on the bottom (in this case purple). Dissolve jello as directed on the box using the “quick chill” method (which includes some ice). Once dissolved, pour the liquid into your glasses, reserving about 1/3 of the jello liquid. Put all of the glasses in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes, until jello is slightly set. Mix about 1/3 cup cool whip (sour cream or yogurt) into the remaining jello liquid. Pour cool whip/jello mixture on top of partially set first layer. Place all cups in the refrigerator and allow to set (at least 15-30 minutes) while you mix the next color.
Repeat process with each color, allowing each layer to set 15-30 minutes before adding another layer. The total process will take several hours.
Top the finished rainbow jello with a dollop of cool whip, or whipped cream and add a chocolate gold coin.
Have a sweet and colorful week!
