Broken Glass Jello

Dessert can be no simpler than this. It requires no KitchenAid mixer and no oven. Just a bit of time. So colorful, it’s great party food. And you can make any variations of color for different celebrations. I made it red, white, and blue to celebrate the Fourth of July.

I tried to cut it into stars but it wasn’t looking so great so I just cut the remainder into blocks. Oh so good. Cannot have only one block.

  • 4 3-ounce boxes of JELL-O, different colors
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)

1. In separate bowls, dissolve one box of jello in one cup of boiling water for each flavor. Pour into individual containers (I used an 8″x8″ cake pan) and chill at least 3 hours, or overnight.

2. Once solid, cut the flavors of jello into small blocks.

3. Carefully mix the blocks in a 9×13-inch pan.

4. In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. Mix well and allow the gelatin to bloom for 5 minutes. After the gelatin blooms, add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and let cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over Jello blocks in 9×13-inch pan. Shake pan lightly to distribute the milk mixture. Chill overnight or at least 3 hours until firm.

5. Cut into blocks or shapes and serve.
