Stained Glass Jello (HAPPY 4th of JULY!)Posted: July 4, 2010
HAPPY 4th of July! I love this recipe I found on Brown Eyed Baker from The Food Librarian. You can adapt this to any color combination you like and cut into any fun shapes too. Just make sure the white gelatin mixture is very cool before you pour it on…I did it just a bit too soon and the red started to run..but they still came out good, but the white on top just is a bit pink..
This does take time to make but each step is very easy!
ENJOY and HAPPY 4th of July!
4 boxes (3-ounces each) Jello (or store brand gelatin dessert) in different colors
14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)
For each flavor, dissolve one box of Jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Pour into a square container that is about 6 to 8″ square and chill at least 3 hours, or overnight.
After chilling the flavors, cut them into small blocks.
Carefully mix the blocks in a 9×13-inch pan.
In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into ½ cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, add 1½ cups boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and let cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over Jello blocks in 9×13 pan. Skim off any small bubbles that are created when you pour the condensed milk on the Jello pieces. Chill overnight or at least 3 hours until firm.
Cut into blocks or shapes and serve.
