Rainbow Gelatin Orange Wedges


When I saw these on Pinterest I knew I had to try these.  Not just to eat them but to have a fun time in the kitchen with the kids!

And besides that, they are one of the most beautiful pieces of fruit I’ve seen!  Super easy to make, super easy to eat!

All we did was wash up 6 oranges and cut them in half.  I don’t have an electric juicer, though I wish I did at this point!  So we had to cut out the insides.  We didn’t have anything pretty to save for eating because we tore the inside of that orange apart!

We bought 4 different colors of jello for this.  We got Lime, Cherry, Grape and Raspberry.

We prepared the jello per the instructions on the package.  Caleb poured the jello in the bowl, I did the hot water, he did the cold water and mixed it up.

I did the jello first, but should have done the oranges first because then bottom of the jello started to set while we were cleaning out the oranges.

After we got them cleaned out Nana poured in one color of each of the jello flavors into 3 oranges.  (Be careful when taking the inside out of the orange not to poke a hole in it, the jello will slowly leak out).  We lost two oranges in the process but recovered with a Cutie!

We used the cupcake pan as seen on Pinterest.  Put the orange peels inside and poured the jello inside.  Put them in the fridge to set over night.

Slice with a knife into 3-4 slices and stare at the pretty fruit before your eyes.

6-9 oranges cut in half with the inside removed

4-6 flavors of Jello

These were amazing.  I had so much fun with these simply because I knew this was a great photo opportunity.  I can’t ruin these pictures if I tried!  They make them pretty all by themselves!

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

    • It was a great idea. They were fun to make with the kids. They ate them in one siting!!
      I recommend using a juicer if you have one to clean the oranges out. We had problems doing it with a spoon!!
      Thanks for stopping by.

    I can’t wait to be a Nana and make these with/for my grandkids. I might just jave to practice with my son, he’s not a big jello fan though 8′(

    • These were a lot of fun to make. The best part was seeing how pretty they turned out. It was hard to eat them. The kids…they loved them. And it’s fun being a Nana.
      Thanks for stopping by.
