Broken Glass Jell-O

Back when we were in the US in February. My Mother made some layered jello that was red and white. It was so yummy I wanted to make it again. But when I was looking on the internet I found this recipe and it was a bit easier and much less time consuming. Plus it taste just the same. If your kids like Jello jigglers they will probably like this.

Broken Glass Jell-O
For this Valentine's day jello, I used:1 - 6 oz (big box) of Cherry Jell-O1 - 6 oz (big box) of Peach Jell-OIf you are going for the Valentine's colors, you can use Strawberry, Watermelon (this comes out pink), or Raspberry.1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (don't get evaporated milk)2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (that Knox stuff)

Directions: For a 4 color dessert, dissolve each 3 oz box of jello in one cup of boiling water. For this 2-color dessert, dissolve each 6 oz box of Jello in TWO cups boiling water. Pour into a container and chill (overnight is best; chill for at least 4 hours until firm). After chilling the flavors, cut each flavor into small blocks.Carefully mix the blocks in a 9 x 13 pan.In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms (just a few minutes), add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over jello. Skim off the bubbles for a nicer finish. Chill overnight. Cut into blocks. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve! Enjoy!
