Jello Eggs For Easter Dinner 

If you’re looking for a fun and yummy Easter side dish, try making Jello Eggs!

Even if you’re not a huge Jello fan, Jello is a fun food for holidays! We don’t eat Jello on a regular basis, but when it comes to holidays, my children love Jello recipes.

Jello Eggs are just fun. There isn’t any other way to put it. They are a perfect side dish for Easter dinner or a festive treat for your Easter picnic.

They are rather simple to make. I’m going to show you how!



How to Make Jello Eggs 

What you need:

  • a Jello Egg mold (similar mold can be purchased here).  (This tutorial via Pinterest is a great DIY Easter Egg mold option, but it requires a lot more time and effort. )
  • water
  • 3 oz. boxes of Jello in your favorite flavors
  • sweetened condensed milk, optional

Jello Egg Mold 

The jello egg mold I have is no longer available. (I got it from the Jello website a few years ago.) However, you can still make these fun Easter jello treats by using this Jello mold: 




How to make Easter Jello Eggs: 

1. Open the Jello Egg mold, making sure the pieces are connected. Spray with cooking spray. Close tightly, making sure each egg snaps shut. Place on a cookie sheet.



2. Mix 1 cup boiling water and 3 oz. Jello together. Stir until completely dissolved. (If you want “milky” colors, add 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk into the mixture as well.) Let cool.

Tip: I like to boil water in a Pyrex glass measuring cup. Then it is easy to mix and pour directly from that.


3. Pour the Jello into each mold. You can do each egg one color, or for a layered look,  just pour the desired amount. Chill for at least 3 hours. If you are doing layered eggs, wait about 30 minutes until you pour the next layer on. Make sure the Jello you are adding is cooled so that it doesn’t melt the chilled layer.


4. After each Jello egg has set-up, carefully open up the mold with a dull knife. Slowly break the seal until you get the top open. Gently pull the Jello egg from the mold.

Tip: Wrap the jello eggs in plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve.

How to Serve Jello Eggs: 

There are a few different ways you can serve Jello eggs.

Use them as part of your Easter Table  by placing them on a bed of dyed coconut for the grass affect.


Or serve them in a basket lined with grass for guests to pick their own. (Be sure to keep them wrapped if you use paper grass.)

Regardless, they are sure to please. Let me know what combinations you like! And how would you serve these Jello Eggs? Do tell!

I tried to get your egg molds, that you have a “link” to, but the link no longer works…I would like to purchase some egg molds to make your fun Jello eggs, but having a hard time finding them. Please reply…

It looks like that link no longer sells the Jello molds. You may have to search the Jello site or Amazon for them.
