  • 2

    quarts vanilla ice cream (box works best)

  • 6

    different Jell-O flavors/colors – she uses Red (strawberry or cherry), Orange (orange), Yellow (lemon), Green (lime), Blue (blueberry mix) and Violet (grape). Please note that Kool-Aid might work, too.


Open the ice cream box and cut the 2 quarts of ice cream into 6 equal portions. In the bottom of the container, place 3 tablespoons of the first color (she uses grape) of Jell-O powder and cover it with one portion of ice cream. Sprinkle the next flavor of Jell-O over the layer of ice cream and cover with another portion of ice cream. Continue like this (Jell-O, ice cream, Jell-O, ice cream) until you use up all the colors. You will end up with a layer of ice cream on the top. Chill the ice cream in the freezer for several hours or overnight until firm. To get the “tie-dye” effect, scoop ice cream across the “grain” of the ice cream layers on one side of the box.
