What is powdered gelatin?

Not to be confused with the Jell-O brand, which contains gelatin. Pure powdered gelatin is simply that, gelatin. Fine granules, that when water is added, will solidify, creating the giggle, wobbly, jello that we all know and love. You can find powdered gelatin in the baking isle at pretty much any Target, or grocery store. It comes in individual packets, and each packet is roughly 1 tablespoon in volume. For this recipe we will use 3 packets of powdered gelatin, roughly 3 tablespoons. You could simply use a box of Jell-O, but I like to make things from scratch because it keeps me from ingesting fake colors and ingredients. If you don’t care, you can use a box of Jell-O, prepare it according to the package directions, and swap out some of the liquid for champagne.

How do I bloom gelatin?

Blooming gelatin powder is necessary to make sure the gelatin is smooth and uniform in the final product. For this recipe, blooming simply means letting the gelatin soak in some water, until it is absorbed.

You can use juice or champagne…

Either works perfectly here. My recommendation would be, if using sweetened juice, is to leave the extra sugar out completely. The sugar is meant to sweeten the jellies because the champagne can be dry and not too sweet. If the juice you are adding tastes sweet enough already, no need to add that extra sugar.

You Need


    • Bloom gelatin by sprinkling it over 1/4 cup of water. Let bloom 5 minutes.
    • In a small saucepan over medium low heat, add sugar and champagne, stir until dissolved. Do not boil. About 3 minutes. 
    • Add bloomed gelatin. Stir until gelatin has melted into sugar wine mixture, about 2 minutes. 
    • Let cool for 10 minutes. Pour into molds. 
    • Put molds into refrigerator for at least 45 minutes to set before removing them from the molds.


TIP to remove jellies from the mold:

I put the tip of a knife just at the top of the mold and pushed outward gently. This helps to break the seal between the jelly and mold and releases the jelly from the mold!
