I love these colorful rainbow grapes, and I know you will too. They’re such a fun and tasty treat, especially as the weather gets warmer. You can serve them chilled or frozen.
I like to make these candied grapes in every color of the rainbow! They’d be fun to serve for a unicorn-themed party or any birthday party.
You can also make them for your favorite holiday–think red and/or pink for Valentine’s Day or red and green for Christmas, for example. You could even do team colors! Use your imagination.
These colorful rainbow grapes are so easy and fun to make. Get the kids involved!
To get started, submerge the grapes in a big bowl of water, and put each color of JELLO gelatin into a separate small bowl.
You’ll use toothpicks to coat each grape in the JELLO powder. The grapes must be wet for the JELLO to stick.
After coating the grapes, lay them on a baking sheet that’s been covered with a piece of parchment paper.
After all grapes have been coated and placed on the baking sheet, move it to the refrigerator for up to an hour. Then, remove the toothpicks and place your rainbow grapes in a serving bowl or on serving tray.
Check the recipe notes for a few tips to make sure these come out perfectly!
- 1 pound grapes, removed from the vine
- 1 box JELLO flavored gelatin in each color of the rainbow
- large bowl of water
- baking sheet
- parchment paper
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
Place freshly-washed grapes (removed from the vine) into a large bowl of water. Make sure they are completely soaked and covered by the water.
Pour the contents of each JELLO gelatin pack into separate bowls for each flavor.
Remove one grape from the water bowl at a time using a toothpick. Immediately roll the grape in the gelatin mixture of your choosing – making sure to completely cover all surface area. If any grape is showing through, simply dab that area into the water and place it back in the gelatin mixture to ensure it is completely coated.
Lay the coated grapes on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. After all grapes have been coated and placed on the baking sheet, move it to the refrigerator for up to an hour. Remove the toothpicks and place in a serving bowl or on a serving tray.
• Once the grapes are chilled, the coating hardens and becomes a candy shell.
• Make sure to allow grapes to completely chill before transferring them to a serving container where they’ll be touching; otherwise, the color will rub off and blend with the other grapes.
• A little of the mixture goes a long way. I would recommend a thin layer of the coating as the flavor is quite concentrated.
