Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day! We're celebrating the birth of our nation with the traditional small town parade, a BBQ, fireworks and this Jell-O recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker blog.

First make the Jell-O. I chose to do two colors but you can do four! Simply add 1 c. of boiling water to each 3 oz. box. Refrigerate until solid.

Next, make your gelatin bloom.

Mix in the condensed milk.

Take the colored Jell-Os and cut into squares. Toss into a 9x13 pan and mix.

Pour the condensed milk mixture on top and level out. Refrigerate until solid. Take a cookie cutter to cut out shapes and enjoy!

Stained Glass Jello
4 boxes (3-ounces each) Jello (or store brand gelatin dessert) in different colors
14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)
For each flavor, dissolve one box of Jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Pour into a square container that is about 6 to 8″ square and chill at least 3 hours, or overnight. (Try to use the same size for all four so that the blocks will come out the same. In this case the smaller the better – I used 8″ pans and felt my “blocks” were a little too flat.)
After chilling the flavors, cut them into small blocks.
Carefully mix the blocks in a 9×13-inch pan.
In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into ½ cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, add 1½ cups boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and let cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over Jello blocks in 9×13 pan. Skim off any small bubbles that are created when you pour the condensed milk on the Jello pieces. Chill overnight or at least 3 hours until firm.
Cut into blocks or shapes and serve.
