4thofJulyJello

Stained Glass Jello

4 boxes (3 ounces each) Jello (or store brand gelatin dessert) in different colors
14 ounces can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
Water

Directions

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.
