Jello Grapes are the perfect sweet treat. This 2-ingredient treat is so easy to make and is sure to please a crowd.
Jello Grapes may just be the best invention ever.
Also known as candy grapes, sour patch grapes, jolly rancher grapes or frosted grapes, these are made when you combine the sourness and crunch from a grape and the sweetness of jello to create the ultimate sweet snack.
They taste quite similar to sour patch kids candy but are a bit healthier. I actually think they taste similar to a popsicle and are perfect for enjoying on a hot summer day.
This Jello Grapes recipe became popular after they went viral on TikTok dubbed being a healthy snack and a great alternative to traditional candy.
We made rainbow grapes by using different jello flavors but you can make them in any flavor/color you’d like. They are perfect to serve up at birthday parties, summer barbecues and even baby showers!
What You Need to Make Jello Grapes

- Fresh Grapes – You can use seedless green grapes or seedless red grapes (or both).
- Water – To wet the grapes so the jello powder will adhere to the grape.

How many servings does this recipe make?
Depending on how many each person eats, this will make about 10-12 servings.
What size box of jello do I need?
For this recipe, I used the 3 oz. boxes of jello mixture.
Can I use sugar-free Jello?
Yes! You can use sugar-free Jello just know, they may not be as sweet. If you do use the sugar-free Jello mixture, these actually end up being 0 WW points if you are on the Weight Watcher program.

You will end up freezing the grapes for one hour after covering them in the jello mixture.
Is it safe to eat jello powder?
According to the FDA, gelatin (the main ingredient in jello powder) is considered safe to eat because it isn’t considered “raw”.
How do I store leftovers?
Store any leftovers in an airtight container or freezer bag in the freezer for a few days and remove when ready to eat. You need to ensure you keep any moisture away from them as they will begin to get soggy and the jello will melt.
How to Make Jello Grapes
Begin by taking the seedless grapes off the stem and washing them thoroughly in a colander. Do not dry them as you want wet grapes.
Place one cup of cold water in a small dish.
Separate the jello flavors in small bowls by placing each jello flavor in a small dish or on a paper plate.
Place one grape on the end of a toothpick, dip in water, and then immediately dip into the jello covering each grape with a thin layer of jello powder.
Place jello covered grape directly onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and line the grapes up by flavor.
Place in the freezer for at least an hour or until the grapes are frozen.
