I can’t wait to share all of the details from the boys’ Disney FROZEN birthday party this past weekend! But, I still have soooo many photos to go through and family in town. So first I’m sharing this super fun FROZEN-inspired dessert: Elsa’s Icy Blue Dessert Trifle. It’s easy to make and one that kids are sure to love, perfect for serving up at a FROZEN birthday party or for a family FROZEN movie night! Don’t the colors remind you so much of Elsa? I love it! You just need a few fun ingredients and a bit of time to make it. Yes, this one has a lot of sugar, but in small quantities it’s a fun treat! Here’s the recipe:
Disney FROZEN Fun Food: Elsa's Icy Blue Dessert Trifle
- 2 small boxes 3 oz or 1 large box of blue gelatin
- 1 bag of blueberry marshmallows cut into quarters
- whipped cream I used ReddiWip
- Blue & white nonpareil candy balls found in the baking section
- Make gelatin according to package directions and let set in the fridge for approximately 90 minutes.
- Once gelatin is set, you can begin layering your mini trifles ...
- Layer #1 – Blue marshmallows quarters with blue and white candy balls sprinkled on top and around the edges.
- Layer #2 – Two scoops of blue gelatin (I used a large tablespoon)
- Layer #3 – Whipped cream
- Layer #4 – Two more scoops of gelatin
- Then, top with whipped cream and candies sprinkled on top.
- Repeat with other trifles and serve cold.
These are served up in individual mini trifle dishes (<—Amazon affiliate link) and makes enough for 8. If you prefer, you could easily make it in one large trifle dish like my Irish Flag Jello Dessert Trifle. Either way, it’s perfect for some Disney Frozen-inspired fun! And really, no matter how you cut it, Jello parfait desserts can be super tasty (like this raspberry jell-o parfait.) YUM!!

Don’t make this too far in advance of serving. It makes a soupy blue mess. And the recipe card doesn’t mention this is made for individual serving glasses. So the 2 tablespoons of jello in the layers didn’t make sense. I just layered it all. Pays to read the whole website, I guess. It probably tastes ok, will have to pour into a cup and drink it, I suppose
Sorry this didn’t work out for you. As this is made with Jell-O and whipped cream, you definitely want to make it at least 2 hours ahead (to set) and serve cold, as the recipe card said. Otherwise, if left out, it certainly will melt over time.
Substitute for the blueberry marshmallows? We don’t have those here, and don’t have any blue coloured marshmallows.
Honestly, I think white marshmallows would look just fine! You could always shake them in a baggie with a little food coloring. Or, add some light blue sanding sugar too.
Good idea. Thanks a lot 🙂
For a healthier adding option use blueberries
You could make a Blue jello poke cake, using white cake mix, poke holes in it when done with the handle of a wooden spoon, pour the jello over the cake, refrigerate until set, then scoop the cake into the bowls still using the blue and white parillels and the whipiped cream.
i dont think we can get blue geltine here in ireland or blue marshmallow is thre anything i can use yuor ideal are great
Hi Ann! I’m not sure what you have in Ireland, but really any substitution of something blue/white could work!
Use angelfood cake with a bit of blue food coloring instead of marshmallows.
I would never have thought of making these but want to try next time my grandchildren visit. Very different!
