What ingredients do I need to make the jello eggs?
- Vegetable oil
- 6 boxes of jello (6 different colors)

To make an even CUTER dessert, cut the eggs in half then top with a dallop of whipped cream. Now you have a plate of rainbow jello deviled eggs!!
Easter Jello Eggs
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1 purple box of jello 6oz
- 1 blue box of jello 6oz
- 1 green box of jello
- 1 yellow box of jello
- 1 orange box of jello
- 1 red box of jello
- 6 tablespoons or 6 packets of gelatin divided
- 6 cups of boiling water divided
- 6 cups of room temperature water
- 6 tablespoons of plain greek or vanilla yogurt divided
- Using a sharp knife, carefully make a small hole (or make an existing one a little larger) at the top of the plastic Easter egg.
- Brush the inside of the plastic egg with vegetable oil.
- Put the two sides of the egg together and seal the seams using scotch tape. A lot of the plastic Easter eggs have drainage holes, be sure to cover those with tape too. Set in the holder and aside for now. Leave open the hole that you made (or made larger).
- In a small bowl, stir the contents of the purple jello package and 1 tablespoon of gelatin.
- Add 1 cup of boiling water and whisk until fully dissolved.
- Add 1 cup of vodka (or room temperature water) and stir a couple of times.
- Using the food safe syringe, add approximately 5-7ml of the purple jello mixture through the hole at the top of the egg. A standard, small size plastic egg holds approximately 60 millilitres or 2 ounces. Only use half of the purple jello mixture reserving the remaining half.
- Place the eggs in the fridge to set for approximately 15 minutes.
- Add 1 tablespoon of yogurt to the remaining half of the purple jello and whisk for one minute to dissolve.
- Using the food safe syringe, add approximately 5-7ml of the purple jello/yogurt mixture through the hole at the top of the egg.
- Place the eggs in the fridge to set for approximately 13 minutes.
- Repeat steps 4 to 11 for each colour of jello. The more layers that you add to the eggs, the shorter the setting time will be. By the time you get to the orange layer, it should only take about 5 minutes to set to touch.
- Once all the layers are completed, keep the eggs in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
- Carefully remove the tape and break open the egg.
- Remove and enjoy!
• The shots will keep in the fridge for 5 days. After that, the gelatin starts to break down. Keep refrigerated when not serving.
• A food-safe syringe is not entirely necessary. A small funnel will do the job but I found that the syringe creates less mess and allows for even layers. Jello can be very sticky.
• You can easily make an alcohol free version by substituting the vodka for a cup of room temperature water.
• If you have trouble removing the eggs from the mold, just hold the mold under warm water for just a minute and the jello should slide right out.
• You can also spray the eggs with cooking spray, just make sure that you give them a wipe with a paper towel after you spray just to remove any residual.
