Cute way to layer jello like the good old days!
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Author: Kim Beaulieu
Ingredients
  • 6 packages of Jello I used grape, berry blue, raspberry, lemon, lime, orange
  • 5 tablespoons of gelatine I used Knox, works really well
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Instructions
Step 1:
  1. In a bowl (or a large measure cup with spout to make transferring the liquid easier) mix your first flavour of Jello with 1/2 tablespoon of gelatine. Add 1 cup of boiling water. Pour into desired serving cup so it makes a thin layer. Pop this in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes to set.
Step 2:
  1. Mix 1/2 can of condensed milk with 1/2 cup of boiling water. Set aside.
Step 3:
  1. In a bowl place 1 tablespoon of gelatine and pour 1/4 cup of cold water over it. Now let it rest for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 4:
  1. Add 1/4 cup of boiling water to the bowl of gelatine you set aside to bloom. Stir it really well. Then add milk mixture to it. Mix again. Allow to cool to room temperature before attempting to fill any dishes with it. If you pour it over the jello the heat will make a mess of your layers.
Step 5:
  1. Once the milky portion is cooled pour it over the first jello layer. Stick in the fridge to set for 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 6:
  1. Repeat with next 2 batches of jello and milky portion alternating them in thin layers.
Step 7:
  1. Make your second batch of the milky portion. Doing it later like this will keep it from becoming too firm too early. So you are repeating steps 3 and 4. If you don't want to scroll here's the instructions for your lazy butt- In a bowl place 1 tablespoon of gelatine and pour 1/4 cup of cold water over it. Now let it rest for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of boiling water to the bowl of gelatine you set aside to bloom. Stir it really well. Then add milk mixture to it. Mix again. Allow to cool to room temperature before attempting to fill any dishes with it. If you pour it over the jello the heat will make a mess of your layers.
Step 8:
  1. Repeat layering process with each Jello package until you use it all up. Make sure you let each layer set for 20 to 30 minutes in the fridge before the next layer.
Step 9:
  1. Allow to firm up completely.
Step 10:
  1. Stuff your face!
Recipe Notes

Recipe from Momofukufor2's Rainbow Jello!

Make sure you plan ahead.

If you want to get them out of the little dishes just place them carefully in a shallow pan of warm water and they will loosen up and come free.

You can also spray the pan or glasses with non stick spray if you like.

You can leave out the milky portion. I did two with the milky portion and then a bunch of little glasses with just straight up Jello.

I would be more careful about the colours you layer than I was if you make it with straight up jello. I put the green and yellow next to each other and there wasn't enough contrast for my liking so think about which ones you want where before making it.
