Rainbow Jello Squares

I had to post about these fun treats before the last holiday weekend of the summer.  My cousin made these for a family gathering a few weeks ago.  She used American colors for one batch (the kid-friendly batch) and Italian colors for the “adult” batch 🙂

These were a big hit!  And of course, you can use whatever colors you like, depending on the occasion.

Fun stuff!

Rainbow Jello Squares
from Lip Smacking Goodness

1 large packet blueberry Jello (or whatever flavor you want)
1 large packet cherry Jello (again, flavor of choice)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
unflavored gelatin

Add blueberry Jello packet to 1 cup of boiling water and let dissolve.  Add 1 cup of cold water.  Pour into 9×13 pan and refrigerate until firm.

While blue layer is cooling, mix milk with 1 cup boiling water.  In a small bowl, sprinkle 2 tablespoons (or 2 packets) gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water.  Let stand a few minutes, then add 1/2 cup boiling water to dissolve gelatin.  Add to milk and stir to combine.  Cool to room temp.

When first layer is set, spoon milk mixture over it.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Repeat first step with cherry Jello.  After it’s set, cut into squares.

  1. How cute! What was “adult” about the batch? Liquor, I presume?

  2. Yes, it was liquor…vodka, to be exact. You could use grain alcohol, too, if you’re feeling REALLY bold 😉
