Recipe Save: Stained Glass Jell-o

Total Preparation Time: A couple days (I usually spread this one out, but technically you could probably manage it in one day if you started early and ended late  🙂 )
Actual Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Number of Servings: one 9/13 pan


  • 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)
  • Water


  1. 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.)
  2. After chilling the flavors, cut them into small blocks.
  3. Carefully mix the blocks in a 9×13-inch pan.
  4. 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.
  5. Cut into blocks or shapes and serve or serve right out of the pan.
