Rainbow Jello Slices

Rainbow Gelatin Orange Wedges

I saw this idea for rainbow gelatin orange wedges on pinterest and I immediately knew I wanted to make them for my daughter's pool party.  I modified the recipe slightly from its original version from buzzfeed.com.

Rainbow Gelatin Orange Wedges
12 oranges
6 boxes of jello (I used lemon, lime, strawberry, berry blue, grape and orange.)

Cut each orange in half.

I used a pairing knife to cut around the edges of the orange and then I scooped out the inside with a spoon.

This job would be MUCH easier if you used a juicer. 

 Put the empty orange halves in a muffin tin to hold them upright.

Prepare each 3 ounce box of jello by adding 2/3 cups boiling water.  Stir until dissolved.  Pour jello into orange halves.  

Refrigerate the jello for at least 4 hours.  Slice each half into thirds. 

The rainbow gelatin orange wedges were so pretty that I couldn't stop taking pictures of them.  (I got a little carried away and I went a little overboard on the photography.) 

These gelatin wedges would definitely brighten up any party table.

  1. for a hot summer pool party, wont these start melting?

  2. A tray of ice underneath the platter of jello slices is a great way to keep these treats cool at a pool party.

  3. Here is an easier way to peel off the two intact halves of orange peel. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CTEwiPEgjWg
