I love this recipe, it’s so colorful and fun! My recipe for Multi-Layered Jello™ and Fruit Jello™ Kabobs make a perfect snack or appetizer for kids and adults. The layers of Jello™ are added individually. The pan is popped into the freezer after each layer is added and sits until hardened before adding the next Jello™ layer. This makes a very pretty and colorful snack that is both eye-catching and tasty. It takes time to make but it is very easy.
My boys loved these cut as Jello™ pieces but also as the kabobs with fruit. Bring these bars or kabobs to a potluck or serve as an afternoon snack for your kids. The kids will especially love the colorful sweet snack. These are super fun, fruity, and healthy. They are so sweet they could even work as a dessert! Pop these in your child’s lunchbox for school for a fun lunch idea.

Aren’t these beautiful! My son said they look like a sunset.
Easy Ingredients & How To Make it
The ingredients are so simple, they include five flavors of Jello™ including lemon, orange, raspberry, and berry blue plus water and fruit. For fruit I used blueberries, pieces of strawberries, and slices of banana. Any flavors of Jello™ can be used in any order. Other items needed to make this recipe include toothpicks, cooking spray, a pan to boil water, a bowl and spoon to stir, a flat shelf in the freezer, and a 9×13 inch pan.
Plan for about 4 1/2 hours when making this recipe. There is a lot of down time because the Jello™ sits in the freezer for an hour in between adding each layer. When the hour is up, it’s only a matter of minutes to get the next layer ready. Boil 1 1/4 cups of water and mix with 6 ounces of Jello™ for each individual layer. This is the Jello Jigglers™ recipe cut in half.
Sometimes the edge pieces experience separation of the layers, so handle them gently.
Other Jello™ Recipes
I’m a mom of three boys and they all just love Jello™ so I’ve come up with several recipes (see links below for recipes). One is for Gummy Worms Jello and my boys coined it that name because they say it tastes just like gummy worms. I also have a Fourth of July Jello recipe and an Easter Egg Jello Recipe. Jello is versatile and fun to make different recipes with and so many great flavors. This summer we’ve enjoyed the new cotton candy flavor (it’s blue).
