I rarely get inspired by my Google search results like I do when I follow links from my favorite blogs. Searching on Google brings up many pages, too many pages, I quickly lose interest. So when I feel like trying something new I turn to blogs like Smitten Kitchen which only serves to lengthen my to-do list. Deb had a recipe that used condensed milk and by following some embedded links I stumbled upon the instructions for Stained Glass Jello .
I haven't had jello since I got my wisdom teeth out and I certainly didn't enjoy it at the time. So this recipe was the perfect opportunity to redeem my wiggly friend and create some new memories for us. Memories that didn't involve me puking into my new stitches (ah the joys of dental surgery).
The process for making it is very simple, it just takes time to set the jello. I chose four flavors : Strawberry, Lime, Peach, and Raspberry. This party tray that holds four smaller trays was the perfect size for setting the jello. For each box I added one cup of boiling water and then chilled them overnight,
Ignore the strip of raspberry jello that I decided needed to be eaten right away. I managed not eat the rest of the jello and it got cut up into cubes and then covered with a mixture of condensed milk and gelatin.
After the whole mixture had set in the fridge - it took about three hours - I cut them into single serving pieces. I had kept one side of the tray a mixture of cherry and lime and the other side a mixture of raspberry and peach. The raspberry and peach was the clear winner of the two combos. The middle zone contained some squares that had all four flavors and I may or may not have just eaten those on my own.
To save myself from a sugar coma I put the rest of the jello in cupcake papers, loaded them into the cute multicoloured containers and sent them off with my boyfriend to his game night with the guys. Farewell jiggly treat!
