If you love Jello, then you have to try this recipe!

Ad

Ingredients:

  • large or small boxes of Jello (any flavors, although it is best to use just a couple different flavors to start with)
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 box of Knox unflavored gelatin
  • Baker's Release spray
  • a pan or muffin tin
  • tea kettle (or pot for hot water)
  • several mixing bowls (one for each flavor of Jello and one for the creamy layer)
  • ladle

Steps:

This can take up to an hour depending on how many layers you do and how many flavors.

  1. Jello Layers: Follow the Jello Jigglers recipe, mixing each color in a separate bowl with just the hot water (NOT cold water). Mix well set aside.

    Let the mixed Jello cool to about room temperature (this helps reduce the time it takes to chill).

    NOTE: Small Jello boxes usually only make one thin stripe whereas the bigger boxes can make a couple stripes. Also flavors like blue raspberry are really overpowering and would be better done with just creamy layers and the raspberry.

  3. Creamy Layers: In a small glass glass bowl, measure 1/2 cup cold water. Drop in 2 envelopes of plain Knox gelatin and let the gelatin "bloom" or swell up. Once it's had a couple minutes to swell, stir it well.

    Pour sweetened condensed milk into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of boiling water.

    Pour dissolved gelatin mixture into the condensed milk mixture, then add another 1/2 cup of boiling water. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Making the Layers: Spray muffin tin or cake pan with Baker's Release spray. Use a paper towel to spread it all over evenly.
  5. Begin by pouring a layer of Jello in the bottom of the pan. Stick the pan in the freezer for around 6 minutes or until it's set. Thick layers take longer, while thin layers take less time. Check on it often, with a clean finger or a spoon. It is done when it is hard and bouncy.

  7. Remove the pan from the freezer and pour in a about 1/3 of the creamy mixture. Stick the pan back in the freezer for 5-6 minutes, or until set.
  8. Repeat the colored layer process followed by another creamy layer. When you're finished place the whole thing in the fridge or serve it! Store in the fridge, but unlike regular Jello it doesn't melt as fast because it has less water! In a cake pan it comes out looking like a colorful slice of rainbow, from a muffin pan they come out like individual little cakes. A very cooling, guilt-free desert!

Other Ideas:

Set each color in a cookie sheet, cut with cookie cutters, place in a deeper pan, and fill in with white layer.

Or do each individual color in a cookie sheet, let it set, and cut it into random cubes. Put the cubes in a pan, fill in with creamy layer, chill then repeat, leaving you with something that looks like a stained glass window when sliced. The possibilities are endless and kids (big and small) love these!

Years ago, (45) there was a Jello that when you made it, it would form into 3 layers when it was setting up. Anyone remember it or how to recreate it?

I found a recipe online. All you need to do is, Pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water in with the 3oz box of Jell-O. Stir Jello-O until disolved. Stir in frozen Coolwhip (3/4 of a 8oz container) a spoonful at a time until well combine. Then pour them into glasses and place in the fridge for 3 hours or until set. Top with left over Coolwhip.

To recreate this dish,you could use 3 different kinds of jello with different colors. Example Strawberry, Lime, and Orange. Using a glass casserole dish, mix up one flavor, and pour into dish, let it set up, then add the other two layers by repeating the directions with each layer You could top it off with a layer of Cool Whip.
