Adding to the fun ways to serve Jello, today I have galaxy Jello cups. Since the rainbow Jello cups were a hit, I thought a galaxy-themed layered Jello treat was in order.

If you’re on the hunt for galaxy desserts, add this recipe to your list.

Far Out Galaxy Jello Cups

I often find myself with a lot of boxes of Jello in the cabinet. Does anyone else stock up whenever they are on sale and then end up with way more than you need?

Having too much Jello is never a problem. Jello on its own is such an easy dessert to make. Or, if you’re feeling creative, the Jello creations you can make are endless.

If you have kids who love space, this is definitely a fun dessert to make with them. Just a warning — it will turn them into tiny aliens. Yes, this galaxy dessert turns your mouth blue, black, and purple!

Kids usually find their teeth turning colors hilarious, but use this as a word of caution in case you’re planning on pictures or would prefer your tiny humans to not change colors.

Be sure to also check out the stained-glass jello cubes!
