This isn’t one of those boring, average, messy jello recipes as the additional gelatin sets to a nice firm texture that makes for excellent finger food. They harden so well, that once you master these jello cubes, you can use them as personalized pieces on an edible arrangement or serve them on a plate so that guests can enjoy them at their leisure.

One of the most wonderful things about edibles recipes is that they can be adjusted to accommodate every need, and they don’t always have to get you high. If you want to get some of the more natural benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive buzz, then CBD edibles are perfect. You’ll just have to make sure that your tincture is made using pure CBD product. For those who want that intense sense of euphoria, this is one of the many jello recipes that can offer a potent punch by infusing only one single layer.

  • 2 6oz boxes of strawberry jello
  • 4 packages of unflavored gelatin

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 14 oz of condensed milk (unsweetened)


  • 9x13 pan or heat resistant dish
  • Whisk
  • 2 medium bowls
  • 1 small bowl
  • Pot


  1. Add 2 cups of water to a pot and put to boil on high, and while you wait, coat a 9x13 dish using cooking spray.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the 2 cups of boiling water with one single envelope of unflavored gelatin, and one box of strawberry jello, then whisk them together until all the granules have dissolved.

  3. Allow the liquid to cool down until it reaches room temperature then pour it into the awaiting greased pan.

  4. Refrigerate the first red layer for 30 minutes, to allow it to set before moving on to the white one.

  • Bring 1 ½ cups of water to a rolling boil.

  • Add 1 cup of the boiling water and the condensed milk to a medium-sized bowl and mix them together.

  • In a small bowl, pour two packages of gelatin and ½ cup of cold cannabis tincture, and whisk them well before letting the mixture stand for a minute or two.

  • Now add the remaining ½ cup of boiling water to melt the gelatin and stir the mixture thoroughly until smooth before mixing all of the ingredients together in the larger bowl.

  • Pour the white layer of jello over top of the first red layer then set it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before moving on to the third and final layer.

  • Bring two cups of water to boil.

  • Add the boiling hot water along with the last package of gelatin and jello to a bowl, then whisk them together until the granules have completely dissolved.

  • Leave the mixture to cool until it reaches room temperature then pour it over the first two layers in the baking dish.

  • Cover the pan in a plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or until it hardens.

  • Cut the finger jello into 32 manageable bite-sized pieces and use a rubber spatula to remove them from the dish and place them onto a platter before serving.
