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
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!
