These cute orange jelly slices are a recipe your kids will love. You can use packaged gelatin or add plain gelatin to the juice. They are so much fun to make and great for parties and parties.

I got this Orange Jello Slices recipe from my mom years ago. She made them for parties and they were always a big hit. This is such a brilliant idea to serve jello in a more interesting way. You can use store-bought packaged gelatin or use most juices, adding a little regular gelatin. Cut the oranges when the jelly is cold and they look so cute and festive.

Not only is the delivery method lovely, but I also love that the jelly has an orange flavor. It really elevates the flavor and is always great. My kids loved these! It’s creative and unique, but it’s also made ahead of time, making it perfect for parties. This is always my biggest hosting tip: do everything you can in advance. I prepare this dessert several days in advance, then all that remains is to chop them.

Every time I make Layered Rainbow Jello, my kids and all their little friends get so excited, so I knew they would love it too.


For the orange jelly slices recipe:

  • oranges
    • I find it best to use oranges that don’t have a very thick skin, although any orange will work for this recipe.
  • packaged jelly
    • It’s so much fun to use different colors and flavors.


  • unflavored juice and gelatin – This can be found in most grocery stores, usually near packaged jelly. (My kids love this version.)

How to make orange jelly slices

  1. First prepare the oranges.
    • Wash the oranges, remove the top and remove the center of the oranges, leaving only the orange peel. (I think the best way to do this is to use a knife to go around the edges of the inside of the orange, then use a spoon to carefully remove the orange.)
    • I would never tell you to waste oranges, of course! Squeeze out all the juice because it will be the tastiest freshly squeezed orange juice out there. You can also use it to make jelly. My children and I enjoyed orange juice for breakfast the next day.
  2. Prepare the gelatin.
    1. If using packaged gelatin, follow package directions.
    2. If using juice, mix 1 cup of juice with 3 1/2 teaspoons of regular gelatin. Let stand about 5 minutes. Then boil another cup of juice. Pour over the flower jelly and juice. Beat to combine until smooth.
  3. After, Pour gelatin/juice mixture + gelatin mixture into prepared oranges.
  4. In the end, chill in refrigerator until firm, 2-4 hours, depending on what you are using and the size of the oranges. (This can be done up to 3 days in advance.)
  5. Cut the oranges into segments and serve.

Helpful tips

How and why to make gelatin bloom?

When using unflavored gelatin, you need to sprinkle it in a liquid, water or juice, mix and let sit for a few minutes. This will rehydrate the gelatin, every speck. This will help ensure that the gelatin is smooth and lump-free. Never boil gelatin. If you heat it on the stove, let it come to a boil on its own or pour the boiling water/juice into the floral gelatin, as you would most store-bought gelatins.

What juice can be used?

Almost any juice can be used in this recipe. You can also use homemade kompot. DO NOT use juices that contain pineapple, mango, papaya, guava or kiwi, otherwise it will not harden. Cranberry, grape, apple, and orange juices work great.

Arrange the oranges in a deep plate with garnishes.

Stack them so they stand upright while the gelatin solidifies.

I love how beautiful and festive they are, especially if you use different colors! I’m so excited for you to try these too. This would also be a great activity to do with your children.
