Stained Glass Jello

stained glass jello

I came across stained glass Jello (also known as broken glass Jello) ages ago on the Food Librarian, but didn’t have a chance to make it until recently. For my kids, I made up some stained glass Jello in tones of red and to my (and their) delight, it came out perfectly! It was also quite delicious, though probably had way more calories than I even want to think about, but that’s fine, because the boys ate most of it on their own! We even sent some to the in-laws as a Valentine treat.

My version had just 2 boxes of flavored Jello because, well, I didn’t read the instructions ahead of time and only bought two. That being said, the full three boxes would give you more color per square.

Stained Glass Jello

Makes 1 9×13 pan

3 boxes (3 oz) flavored Jello (I used Cherry and Strawberry)
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

5 c. water

Make each flavor of Jello with just one cup of boiling water. Pour into containers and chill overnight. (HIGHLY recommended, since underchilled Jello will bleed into the white milk).

Turn out the Jello and cut into little blocks. Mine were about half an inch square. Put them all into the pan and gently mix.

In a bowl, sprinkle (DO NOT DUMP) the unflavored gelatin over half a cup of cold water. Wait a couple of minutes and then pour 1.5 cups boiling water over the mixture and stir until dissolved. Add the entire can of condensed milk and stir until smoothly combined. Let cool, but not until set.

Pour the cool milk mixture over the colored Jello in the pan and pop in the fridge overnight. Cut into blocks to serve.
