This is NOT the blob of JELL-O you might normally find on your Fourth of July picnic table. These stained-glass JELL-O stars might even have your family singing "JELL-O the Beautiful"!

Stained Glass Jell-O

Stained-Glass JELL-O(also known as Broken-Glass JELL-O)

Recipe courtesy ofBrownEyedBaker

Makes one 9 x 13 panful


4 3-oz. boxes JELL-O (or store-brand gelatin dessert), 2 blue and 2 red
4-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)

Stained Glass Jell-O

1) For each flavor, dissolve one box of JELL-O in 1 cup of boiling water and pour into a 6" square container. Chill at least 3 hours, or overnight. (You can use four 8" pans, but when I did, the "blocks" ended up being a little too flat.)

2) After chilling the flavors, cut them into small blocks.

3) Carefully mix the blocks in a 9 x 13 pan.

4) In a separate bowl, sprinkle the 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into ½ cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, add 1½ cups boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and let cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over the JELL-O blocks in the 9 x 13 pan. Skim off any small bubbles that are created when you pour the condensed milk on the JELL-O pieces. Chill until firm (at least 3 hours, or overnight).

5) Cut into star shapes, and serve.
