Red, White and Blue Stained Glass Jell-O Recipe

INGREDIENTS:
  •  6 oz. box strawberry Jello
  •  6 oz. box berry blue Jello
  •  14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  •  2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  •  5½ cups of boiling water
  •  ½ cup of cold water
DIRECTIONS:

1. In two separate baking dishes or casserole dishes use 1 box of Jell-O per dish and 1 cup of boiling water. Stir for 2 full minutes, until it is completely dissolved, then allow to cool to room temperature. Pour each into the prepared pans and chill at least 3 hours, or overnight.

2. Turn the chilled Jell-O out onto a cutting board and slice into ½-inch blocks.

3. Add the blocks to a jelly roll pan or 9×13-inch pan that has been lined with plastic wrap. Gently spread the blocks so they are in an even layer and the colors are evenly mixed.

4. In a separate large bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into ½ cup cold water and allow to sit for 5 minutes. After the gelatin blooms (it will look mostly dissolved and get wrinkly on the surface), add 1½ cups boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk and stir to combine; set aside to cool to room temperature. Pour the cooled milk mixture over the red and blue Jell-O blocks in the pan. Chill overnight, or at least 3 hours until firm.
