This was a fun addition to not only the treats at the party but also to the decor. Here was my inspiration-
We have a family layered Jell-O recipe, but it called for more Jell-O and the middle layer is not just white. SO I of course perused the internet and found a recipe that I thought would fit a little bit more with what I wanted.
To make these doesn't take a lot of effort, just a bit of planned time and some pot washing. They can work with ANY color theme. I mean really if they make that color of Jell-O, then you can have any colors you want.
Here is what you will need:
3-3 oz pkg of Jell-O (tropical fusion, lemon, blue raspberry)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
3 1/2 pkgs of unflavored gelatin (not boxes, but the pouches inside)
container for layered Jell-O (I used clear plastic cups)
Mix your first pkg of Jell-O with 1/2 pkg of unflavored gelatin. Add 1 cup of boiling water and stir to dissolve. Cool to room temperature (you can always rush this process by putting it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes...but make sure to watch it or it will start getting solid). After it is room temperature pour it evenly into containers...mine filled 6 cups. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
While that first layer is in the refrigerator, mix the can of sweetened condensed milk with 1 cup of boiling water. In a small bowl, sprinkle 2 pkgs of unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup water. Let it stand a few minutes and then add 1/2 cup boiling water to dissolve gelatin. Add this to the milk mixture and stir to combine. Cool to room temperature. Pour 1/2 of the mixture evenly over the 6 cups. Refrigerate for another 15-20 minutes.
The milk mixture can stay out. Repeat the Jell-O and layering steps with the other 2 flavors, going Jell-O, milk layer, Jell-O.
Now you have a perfect and fun layered Jell-O cup to match your party and delight your little party guests.
