Here's a fun recipe for your family this holiday season. How about making some colorful Christmas jello?

Christmas Jello

Ingredients:
  • 3 ounce box cherry jello
  • 3 ounce box lime jello
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • Water
Directions:

Step 1: Prepare the red and green jello according to package instructions. Chill overnight so that the jello becomes stiff. I used two 8x8” disposable baking pans to make the red and green jello.

Step 2: Cut the red and green jello into cubes (I found the larger the cube the easier it was to work with).

Tip: Before cutting jello, dip the knife or spatula into hot water. This will help you get a clean cut and avoid the jello breaking apart as you cut.

Step 3: Gently arrange the green and red cubes in the bottom of a 8x8” baking dish. Grease the baking dish before you place the jello in. I found it better to place the cubes in the pan, in the pattern I wanted them to be. When you mix them, they tend to break apart. Place in fridge while you prepare the white jello.

Step 4: Dissolve the two packets of unflavored gelatin in ½ cup cold water. Boil 1 ½ cups water. Add the ½ cup gelatin mixture to the hot water. Mix until the gelatin dissolves. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir. Allow the milk mixture to cool to room temperature. You can place in fridge for 20 minutes to speed up this process.

Tip: DO NOT pour white jello onto cubes until it is at room temperature. The hot mixture will cause the cubes to break apart.

Step 5: Pour the cooled milk mixture over the red and green jello cubes. Place in fridge overnight to solidify.

When ready to serve, dip knife into hot water before slicing jello. The hot water creates a clean slice!
