Confetti Jello


With the weather here in the midwest being so hot lately(100 degrees) today and last week in the high 90's, I was really looking for something cool and refreshing. I had been wanting to make this recipe for a while but hadn't had time, there is a little planning involved...and I'm not really much of a planner.  It's really not hard to make but you do need a little time.  
Here's what you need:
  • 4 small packages (3 oz size) of jell-o, I picked 4 different flavors but you can use any combination of 4.
  • 2 packets of unflavored gelatin(I used Knox brand)
  • 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk 
  • 1/2 c. cold water
  • 1 1/2 c. boiling water 
So here is the planning part- you need to make this a couple days before you want to eat it.  Make the 4 packages of jello (use the directions on the box) I made mine in these small 3 and 4 cup containers. You don't want the jello to be too thin.  After the jell-o is set up(about 4 hours) cut it up into small squares and put in a 9x13 pan and refrigerate.
 

Pour the 2 packets of unflavored gelatin into a bowl and mix with 1/2 c cold water, let it sit until it's thick(I guess it's called "blooming") add 1 1/2 cups boiling water and stir until it's dissolved. Let it sit about 30 minutes or until it's cooled down(I put mine in the fridge, I'm not much for waiting!)Add the can of sweetened condensed milk and mix together, then pour over your jello squares and refrigerate overnight or for about 8 hours.  It is worth the wait! It looks pretty and tastes delicious...and didn't last long at my house!
