Edible Jello Menorah


Here's another idea for these sleek looking shot glasses that I used to create the pearl hanukkah-candy-menorah/. As with the candies, they create simple, yet striking (and certainly sweet) centerpieces for your Chanukah parties!

Striped Jello Menorah

With a couple of simple steps you can create eye-catching striped jello “candles”. You’ll find that not only are the results a conversation piece, but each step fun and intriguing as you add each layer one by one.

For best results use Kolatin® Jello, as it congeals a perfect texture for the tilts. Additionally its colors will not “bleed” one into the other.  When purchasing the shot glasses, stick with something simple. The simpler the glass, the more dramatic the projects will look. I am honored to have been asked to join the first ever Hanukkah Blog Party, hosted by Leah of Cook Kosher and Miriam of Overtime Cook.

It's traditional on Hanukkah to eat fried treats, most notably donuts and latkes, and we've got a fabulous array of Hanukkah themed recipes, treats and crafts from Jewish bloggers all over the world!

Scroll down for links to all of the delicious treats. 


  • 1 box lime Kolatin® Jello
  • 1 box raspberry or strawberry Kolatin® Jello (I added in a couple of drops of blue food coloring to make a purple color.)
  • 1 box orange Kolatin® Jello
  • cupcake tray
  • 9 shot glasses
  • glass tea light holder
  • narrow tray (optional)


1-Make the first color jello following directions on the box.

2-Pour first layer of jello into your glasses filling it approximately a third of the way.

3-Once each glass is filled evenly, it’s time to tilt your glasses.

4-Place  glasses  in a cupcake pan being careful that each jello is tilted in the same direction and angle.


 5. Place jellos inside refrigerator and allow to jell.
 6. Repeat step one using a new flavor of jello and adjusting the tilt of each jello in your cupcake pan accordingly.

 7. Make your last layer using new flavor of jello and refrigerate in an upright position.


To assemble the Menorah: Line up all the shot glasses in a neat row (place on tray if desired).

For the “Shamash”, raise the center glass by placing it on a glass tea light holder (turned upside down).
