Colorful Layered Jello

Colorful Layered Jello

 

Jello

Layered Jello

Nothing is more festive than layered jello, it’s always great at any party.  You can tailor the colors to match the occasion or the party theme.  It’s very versatile and tastes great too.

Layered Jello is a great idea for kids’ parties.  They’re firm enough to be be finger food.  For younger children cut them into smaller cubes so the little hands can pick them up easily.  When we serve this at parties we cut them into squares and place each square in a paper cupcake liner.  The liners come in a variety of colors and designs, I’m sure you’ll find some to match your party theme!  For added fun cut the Jello into cool shapes with cookie cutters!

In this recipe we use the classic flavors/colors orange, lime, blue raspberry, and strawberry.  But you can mix and match different color combinations, like red, white, and blue for 4th. Of July, or red, green, and white for Christmas.  You can even use cookie cutters to make fun shapes.  The possibilities are endless, enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

4 (3oz. each) packages JELLO : orange, lime, blue raspberry, strawberry

6 envelopes KNOX unflavored gelatin

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

 

Directions: 

  1.  Mix 2 envelopes Knox gelatin with 1 cup hot water. Combine with condensed milk to make gelatin/milk mixture.  Set aside. 
  2. Combine Strawberry Jello, 1 envelope Knox gelatin, 1 ½ cups hot water.  Cool.  Pour into 9”x13” glass pan.  Refrigerate until set.  About 30 mins. 
  3. Pour 1/3 of milk/gelatin mixture over firm first layer.  Refrigerate until firm.  About 30 mins.  
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 with the remaining Jello flavors alternating with milk/gelatin mixture.  You should end up with 4 colored layers and 3 white layers in between.
  5. When all layers are set cut into squares or desired shapes.

*Setting time may increase as the layers get thicker.  

*Be sure that the layers are firm before pouring the next layer. 

*Cool Jello mixture thoroughly before pouring onto set layers.
