Layered Jello Cubes

These fun bite-sized cubes are perfect for any occasion. We choose the Jello flavors and colors based on the occasion. Pastel colors for Easter, bright colors for summer picnics, etc. These are easy enough for the kids to make and special enough for a potluck, birthday celebration or refreshing summer treat. These little bites are a great way to let the kids get creative!

 

Ingredients:

4 – 3 oz packages assorted Jello gelatin
6 envelopes unflavored gelatin, divided
5-3/4 c boiling water, divided
1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c cold water

Directions:

  1. Spray a 13″ x 9″ x 2″ dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl combine one package of the flavored Jello with one envelope unflavored gelatin. Stir in 1 c boiling water until all the gelatin is dissolved. Pour into the prepared baking dish and refrigerate about 20 minutes or until almost set, but not firm.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk with 1 c boiling water. Set aside. In another bowl, add 1/4 c cold water and sprinkle two envelopes of unflavored gelatin over the water; do not stir. Let sit for one minute. Stir in 3/4 c boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the dissolved gelatin mixture to the milk mixture and stir to combine. This milk/gelatin mixture will be the white layer between each colored Jello layer.
  4. Gently spoon 1-1/4 c of the milk/gelatin mixture over the first layer of set Jello in the baking pan. Refrigerate until this white layer is set, but not firm; approximately 25 minutes.
  5. Repeat for the next flavored Jello layer. Alternate flavored Jello with the milk/gelatin layers, refrigerating after each layer just until set. Final layer should be a flavored gelatin layer.
  6. Refrigerate at least one hour until firm. Cut into 1 inch cubes. Serve.
