Broken Glass Jello

This jello was so fun to make! We had it at our family Super Bowl party. I used 2 colors for an 8x8in pan, but you can easily double this and use 4 colors in a 9x13in pan. It would also be great to make for the 4th of July or Christmas!

Broken Glass Jello
adapted from
2 small boxes (3 oz each) Jell-O or store brand gelatin
7 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 envelope unflavored gelatin (Knox brand, in the Jell-O aisle)

1. In 2 separate rectangular plastic containers, mix each jello package with 1 cup of boiling water. Stir each until dissolved and then refrigerate until firm (at least 4 hours, or overnight).
2. When jello flavors are firm, cut the jello into small cubes. Mix the colors together in an 8x8 pan.
3. In a separate bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin into 1/4 cup cold water. Add 3/4 cup boiling water and stir to dissolve. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and let cool (we don't want it to melt the jello cubes). Pour the white gelatin mixture over the cubes of jello.
4. Refrigerate overnight. Cut into squares and serve.
