This 4th of July Jello is the perfect patriotic treat this summer! The whole thing will show the patriotic colors and be the hit of the party.
We love to add it along with other great food for family BBQ’s or potlucks in the Summer! This blue layer and white layer jello is a staple for all of the American patriotic holidays. Bring this red, white, and blue dessert to any july party or even to memorial day. The festive red, white, and blue colors within the jello are sure to be the hit of the party.
4th of July traditions are my favorite and this 4th of July Jello is a fun and festive treat to help you cool down on a hot summer day! There is nothing better than a fun dessert to add as a side dish to showcase patriotic colors to say, “Happy 4th of July”!
Every 4th of July, we have a big BBQ at our parent’s house and enjoy being together.
This fun jello snack always shows up at our 4th of July dinner and the kids LOVE it. One of the coolest things about this dessert is that the different colors can be whatever flavors you choose. This patriotic recipe must be red, white, and blue but each layer can be made with packets of unflavored gelatin which can then be flavored accordingly.
For the festive red layer we like to use strawberry jello or raspberry hello. The next layer is white jello which we usually add a condensed milk mixture to, to give it flavor. And the bottom layer is the blue layer which is delicious when fresh blueberries are added.
(Hot tip: If you want to make jello cups that pop, try using a star cookie cutter for each jello slice!)
