These over the rainbow jello treats are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day treat or anytime fun snack idea! My kids LOVE these and they’d also be really fun for a classroom unit on rainbows. No matter what the occasion, these rainbow jello treats are tasty and super easy to assemble! I’ve even got the free printable rainbows for you.
I just LOVE rainbow food. It’s so colorful and fun! It also gives me a great opportunity to teach colors to my three-year-old who really struggles with remembering which color is which. My rainbow jello is hugely popular so be sure to check that recipe out too. It makes for a fun toddler snack or rainbow party food.
To make the over the rainbow jello treats you’ll need:
- Jello cups (refrigerated or shelf stable depending on how you’ll store them)
- hot glue gun
- free printable rainbows (get those here)

Place folded over tape on the backside of each end of your rainbow. Place on the Jello cup so it looks like an arched rainbow.
Repeat for all of your Jello cups.
Next, use a hot glue gun to attach the Rolo “pot of gold” to each Jello cup. You’ll just be using a small bead of glue and since it doesn’t ooze into the wrapper like white glue would, you don’t have to worry about it touching the food.
Place a small bead of hot glue on the top of each Rolo, making sure the wrapper completely covers the chocolate. Then attach one to each end of the rainbow.
Repeat for all of your rainbow jello cups.
Aren’t they adorable and SO easy?! If you bought refrigerated Jello make sure you store them in the fridge. You can also buy shelf stable Jello if you won’t be able to store them in the fridge.
These are a great classroom party treat as they are pre-packaged and not home-baked, while still being utterly adorable! Make these for St. Patrick’s Day or just for fun.
