St Patrick’s Pot of Gold Jell-O

Pot of Gold, St Patrick's Day recipe

Very simple St Patrick’s Day recipe that makes the kiddos happy. You can serve this at the end of your rainbow cupcakes.


St Patrick's Day, Jello, Lemon

  • 3-ounce box of lemon-flavor gelatin
  • 6 lemons (or limes)


  1. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with plastic wrap, leaving several inches of overhang on each side (this will make removing the gelatin easier). (Make sure you don’t use 2 pieces of overlapped wrap because the jello just seeps in between the layers and makes a mess!) Combine a 3-ounce box of lemon-flavor gelatin and 1 cup of boiling water in a medium bowl, stirring until the gelatin is dissolved. Stir in 1 cup of cold water, then pour the mixture into the baking dish. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and chill the gelatin for 4 hours or until firm, then slice the gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Cut off the top quarter of each of 6 lemons, then, without cutting into the fruit, slice a thin layer of peel from the bottom of each one to help them stand upright. With a small knife, cut around the inside of each lime’s rind to loosen the pulp, then spoon it out to make a shell.Pot of Gold, St Patrick's Recipe
  3. Fill each lemon pot with gelatin gold. Makes 6.
