Rainbow Jello Christmas Cookies are so colorful and fun to make. They are so much easier than having to ice your cookies, they will be a huge hit at a cookie exchange or pot luck.
Using Jello mix and just a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, these cookies can be whipped up in no time. If you are looking for an easy cookie recipe to do with your kids, Rainbow Jello Christmas Cookies are a perfect choice. All of the cookie recipes I have made so far this season Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies, Grandma’s Sour Cream RaisinCookies, Cherry Kissmas (Christmas) Cookies all are fairly easy, but this one is probably the easiest.
You can choose to make as many different colors as you'd like, I used 4 different colors but if you only have 2 or 3 boxes of jello -go with that. Christmas colors were used for this batch, but you could adjust colors for whatever occasion you are celebrating.
