Broken Glass Jello

How fun is this?   I wish the picture was better to show you how fun it really turned out.  The recipe called for 4 small boxes of jello, but I didn’t read the recipe until it was too late.  It worked fine with 3 boxes.

4 small boxes of jello, different colors
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (like Knox brand)

Make each box of small jello using 1 cup of boiling water.  Do not add any cold water.  I put each color in a different mini bread pan.  After the jello is totally hard, take it out of the pan (hot water for a few seconds on the bottom and each side will loosen it easily) and cut it into small pieces.  Put all the pieces in a 9X13 pan or a 2+ quart dish (we liked the deeper container to cut slices – it was prettier) and use your hands to gently mix the colors together.

In a medium bowl, empty the two envelopes of gelatin and stir in 1/4 cup cold water to dissolve.  Add 1 3/4 very hot tap water and the can of milk. Stir well.  After the mix cools to tepid, pour over the jello blocks.  Refrigerate several hours until firm.

Slice and enjoy.
