Green + Gold Layered Jelly Cups

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi! We’re continuing our green and gold Olympic fun with green and gold layered jelly cups for our Aussie Paralympic Champions! Made with lemon and lime jelly, they’re a little time intensive, but super fun and something a little different for a sporting celebration! Once cooled, replace some of the liquid with a clear rum or vodka for a grown up treat, but remember – drink responsibly!

Layered Jelly Cups

Make your gold (yellow). In a 1 litre capacity jug, add 400ml of just boiled water and juice of two lemons. Sprinkle with gelatine, add sugar, three drops of yellow gel food colour and stir vigorously with a fork until the gelatine and sugar have completely dissolved. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Make your green jelly. In a 1 litre capacity microwave safe jug, add 1/4 cup hot water and sprinkle over gelatine. Set aside for five minutes and allow to bloom, blooming is the process where gelatine absorbs water and swells. After five minutes, microwave on low power for 30 seconds to melt the gelatine. Add the condensed milk, lime juice, and two drops of green gel food colour. Add more colour for a more vibrant green.

Time to make your layered jelly cups! This recipe will make enough for four 200ml jellies, increase the recipe to allow for more serves. If you’re not sure the volume of your cup, fill with water then pour the water into a marked measuring jug. Place your cups side by side on a tray, and pick your first layer (we started with gold). Pour from your jug into each cup. Or, for even measurements use a tablespoon or 1/4 cup measure. Place in the fridge until set. Repeat with your next layer. Continue until all you’ve used all of your jelly, and tada! Beautiful layered jelly cups worthy of a gold medal!
