What do you need to make jello grapes

  • Jello– Choose your favorite flavor of jello. We made this recipe with a variety of our favorite flavors that included raspberry, berry blue, orange, lime, lemon, and grape. 
  • Grapes- Grab your favorite variety of seedless grapes. Choose green, red, purple, or even cotton candy. 
  • Water- You will need water to help the jello stick to the grapes

Jello-O boxes of different flavors
  • 1 lb grapes
  • 1 box raspberry jello
  • 1 box berry blue jello
  • 1 box orange jello
  • 1 box lime jello
  • 1 box lemon jello
  • 1 box grape jello
  • Toothpicks

How to make jello grapes

  • Begin by taking grapes off the stem and washing them thoroughly in a colander.  
  • Place one cup of water in a small dish and place each jello flavor in a small dish or on a paper plate. 
  • Place one grape on the end of a toothpick, dip in the water, and then dip in jello.

Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Be sure your grapes are damp as you insert them into the jello powder. Without them damp, the Jello will not stick to them. 
  • While it may seem easy to toss the grapes in a bag with the jello powder and shake it, this will not work. You will end up with clumps, and the grapes will not be coated in the jello powder. 
  • If you don’t have a toothpick, you can use a skewer. If you find yourself without both of these, you can roll the grapes in the mixture with your fingers. 
  • If you want a sugar-free treat, just use sugar-free jello packages. 
  • Any color of grape will do. Choose from purple, red, or green. You could even use cotton candy grapes. Yum! 
  • Add these to your water for delicious flavored water! 

Storage

You will want to store these in the fridge in an airtight container. This will last up to 3 days. 

Freezer

Place these in a freezer-safe airtight container if you would like them to last longer. This will last up to 2 weeks.

Pull them out and snack on them as you desire. They are so good frozen.
