  • Fresh Grapes
  • Toothpicks
  • Water
  • Jello Powder in Various Colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Purple


  1. Preparation:
    • Set out individual bowls for each color of Jello powder.
  2. Coat the Grapes:
    • Working with one grape at a time, insert a toothpick into the end of the grape.
    • Briefly dunk the grape in water to moisten it.
    • Then, place the grape in the center of a bowl of Jello powder.
    • Use a spoon to gently cover the grape with Jello powder, ensuring an even and smooth coating.
  3. Dry the Grapes:
    • Transfer the coated grape to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Carefully remove the toothpick.
    • Allow the grapes to dry until the surface is no longer sticky, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Serve:
    • Once dry, arrange the grapes in a bowl in a rainbow color sequence and enjoy!


  • Uniform Coating: To ensure an even coating of Jello powder, gently roll the grapes in the powder rather than sprinkling.
  • Drying Time: Adjust the drying time based on humidity; more humid environments may require a longer drying time.
  • Serving Suggestion: For an extra special touch, serve the grapes chilled for a refreshing treat.


  1. Can I use frozen grapes for this recipe?
    • Yes, frozen grapes work well and may even eliminate the need for initial wetting as condensation can help the Jello powder stick.
  2. How should I store the leftover rainbow grapes?
    • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
