How to Make Easter Jello Recipes Sweet Treat

Follow the directions for How to Make a Graham Cracker Crust.

If you wanted to, you could also switch it up and use a pretzel crust and decorate it with some fresh fruit.

In a large bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar and melted butter.

The butter should be melted in the microwave or in a small pot, not just at room temperature.

While some might think it’s easier to make all the layers at the same time, I found it was easier to make one layer at a time.

You can, however, measure out each flavor of jello at 44 grams. This way you will have all the Jell-O colors ready to go.

I also measured out the cool whip so that it was evenly divided up.

The water, you can measure as you go.

Starting with your first layer color (44 grams). Add 1/2 cup of boiling water and mix until well dissolved.

Let stand for about 15 minutes to cool slightly.

Add your matching container of yogurt and mix well.

Dump the mixture into the divided cool whip (112.5 grams).

Mix until well blended.

Pour into graham cracker crust and smooth out.

After it’s all smoothed out, give it a shake to get it to settle and to get rid of any bubbles.

Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

While it’s in the freezer, work on your second layer color. (44 grams)

Add 1/2 cup of boiling water and mix until well dissolved.

Start with your 3rd and 4th layers following the same steps except for after the last layer you will want to leave it in the freezer for approximately 3-4 hours.

When you are ready to serve it, remove it from the freezer about 30 minutes beforehand so it will be easier to cut.

Top with whip cream, Easter sprinkles, or whatever your little heart desires.

My husband commented that it tasted like sherbet, but I thought it tasted more like ice cream and melted in your mouth.

4 Layer Easter Jello Recipe

I wanted to do a 6 layer Easter Jell-O Pie, however, I needed to cut down the measurements. Maybe next time.

Notes:

Make sure to give yourself enough time for the jello to set before serving.

Next time I think I would do pink, orange, purple, and yellow. I was trying to go in order of the rainbow.

The yellow and orange layers are kind of hard to tell apart.

These are my family’s favorite Easter desserts. Jello recipes aren’t new recipes, however, they are easy recipes.

I think it’s the pastel color that makes this such a huge hit with everyone.

You can also add a yellow peep, orange peep, blue peep, etc. to the top as I did with an Easter pie once before. It gives it a cute twist.

Jello Easter Eggs

I’m sure you’ve heard of jello jigglers. The jello eggs are made when the jello mixture is poured into the plastic eggs.

Spray the jello egg molds with cooking spray. Make your favorite box of jello, whether it’s raspberry flavor, lemon gelatin, orange gelatin, or any different flavors that you would like.

Mix a 6 oz box of gelatin with 1 1/2 cups hot water (no cold water needed) in a mixing bowl.

Use a medium bowl with a pour spout for easy pouring into the small hole on top of the jello jigglers mold. If you aren’t good at pouring, you can always use a small funnel.

Spray the egg halves with cooking spray.

Pour gelatin mixture into a small hole until it reaches the top and close mold.

Place mold in the refrigerator for approximately 4 hours to firm up.

When you are ready to serve, open mold and place on a serving platter for a nice addition to any Easter feast.

This is one of the gelatin desserts that was served at grandma’s house when the whole family would get together for Easter dinner. It definitely is a family favorite.

However, it’s also great for church potlucks, Christmas dinner (change up with different colors of jello) a family reunion, etc.

Make this an Easter tradition at one of your next family gatherings. This is just one of the delicious treats that we will be bringing you this year on the Easy Everyday Recipes blog.

This Easter Jello recipe was so much fun and it tastes so good, that you will want to make it all the time.

Back in the day, Jello salad recipes were popular because they were cheap and easy meals additions with ingredients readily available at the grocery store.

If made in a ring mold with a cream cheese layer, with cranberry sauce, a raspberry layer, and fresh raspberries, it was considered a great side dish.

The raspberry vanilla jello salad was a staple in many households during the depression.

Can I Make This With Sugar Free Jello

I have not tried it with sugar-free jello, but there’s a first time for everything.

Sugar-free jello doesn’t have the consistency as regular jello, however, I have used sugar-free when making jello shots and I did not notice a difference one way or another.
