Christmas Jellies

Jiggle your way through the season with a festive jello treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 3-ounce box of red jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon powdered gelatin
  • 1 3-ounce box of green jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon powdered gelatin
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons powdered gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • Whipped cream and festive sprinkles for decoration (optional)

Steps

  1. Make the red and green layers: Make one colour at a time by pouring the contents of one box of red or green jello and 1 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin into a bowl and combine. Add 1 cup of boiling water and mix until everything is completely dissolved. Repeat with the other colour in a separate bowl. Set both bowls aside.
  2. Make the white layer: Combine the condensed milk and boiling water. Pour 1/2 cup cold water into a bowl and sprinkle over 2 tablespoons of powdered gelatin. Allow this to sit for 2-3 minutes, then add 1/2 cup boiling water and mix well. Add this to the condensed milk mixture and fully combine.
  3. Pour1/2 cup of the green jello into an 8'x5' dish lined with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes, or until fully set. Pour 1/2 cup of the white layer on top and return to the fridge for 20 minutes. Pour 1/2 cup of the red jello on top and return to the fridge. Repeat, alternating with red and green jello, making sure to have a white layer in between each colour.
  4. Once the jelly has fully set, unmold and slice into cubes or use a festive cookie cutter.
  5. If desired, top with some whipped cream and festive sprinkles and enjoy!
