Super Jelly


Super Jelly – 280ml plastic cups made 8

Ingredients – for the jelly:

  • 3 x 85g pkg of jelly (in colours to suit your theme)
  • 3 cups of boiling water (one for each colour)
  • 3 teaspoons of powdered gelatine (one for each colour)
  • 8 containers for layering jelly (clear plastic cups would work)

To make jelly:

  • Mix first package of flavoured jelly with one teaspoon of gelatine
  • Add one cup of boiling water and stir to dissolve.
  • Cool to room temperature before pouring.  (But don’t wait too long or it will set.)

Ingredients – for the yoghurt jelly:

  • 1 cup (250ml) thickened cream
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ teaspoons powdered gelatine
  • 1 cup (250g) Greek style natural yoghurt

To make the yoghurt jelly:

  1. Place cream, sugar and vanilla extract into a small pan over a medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved and gently bring to boil, remove from heat.
  2. Sprinkle over gelatine and whisk until dissolved. Add yoghurt, whisk until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve, set aside to cool.


  • Divide first jelly amongst cups evenly.  Refrigerate until set. (about 15-20 minutes)
  • Prepare yoghurt jelly.
  • Cool to room temperature. Pour 1/2 of the mixture evenly over cups. (Leave balance on counter so it doesn’t set!)
  • Refrigerate cups for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Repeat the jelly and yoghurt layering steps with the other two flavours until desired design is reached.
  • Dairy Free? leave out the yoghurt layer.

Make this for a Superhero Party theme
