Recipe: Jell-O Oranges

This would be a great April Fool's snack - I used the same recipe from my Juice Jell-O Jigglers.

I did not use orange jell-o, because it is not a favorite of the kiddos, but it would look cooler with orange jell-o.

I made three orange halves, and they leaked a little, so I cut the rind down to the top of the jell-o before I sliced them.

Jell-O Oranges

1 small box Jell-O (3 oz regular, or 0.3 oz sugar free), desired flavor (orange would look best)
2/3 c juice (don't use pineapple juice)

Cut an orange in half and scoop out the orange innards, being careful not to puncture the skin. 

Boil juice, and stir in jell-o powder.  Put the orange halves into a shallow dish.  Pour carefully into orange halves - one packet makes about one and a half orange halves, so you can make several flavors or several packets at a time.
Leaked a little, and please ignore the contents of my fridge...
Carefully place in the refrigerator for several hours until the jell-o has solidified.  Can be stored in the fridge for a couple days.

Remove from the fridge and slice to serve.

Pin It!


  1. Very cute! My kids will love these!

  2. great idea for april 1! to make it easier to pour jello, why not put the orange halves in a muffin tin to hold them up?

    chrisleslied... can't figure how to post this with my email address :(

  3. My muffin tins are all too small, but that's a great idea! You could even do clementines (if you could get the fruit out without killing the skin) and use smaller muffin cups. Thanks for the wonderful idea!
