Happy 4th of July! So proud to be an American and grateful for all I’m blessed with! Thankful also for our military troops and their continuing to fight for our freedoms!
Thought I’d share this really fun gelatin I made. We had some friends who were visiting from Arizona over for lunch. I have seen this on a number of blogs over the years and thought it would be fun to make with red, white and blue. You can use any color of Jell-o with any flavor and as many colors as you’d like, so this would be perfect for any occasion using colors to suit the holiday, etc.
The blog I immediately thought of was The Food Librarian. Mary has made different version of this broken glass Jell-o many times. It’s really simple and looks great (minus my bubbles on the top-I didn’t take the time to remove them and I should have before the Jell-o went in the fridge for the night. I love how nicely this cuts and it would have been perfect cut with a star shaped cookie cutter.
You can see Mary’s simple instructions on the link to her blog. Her Jell-o squares are perfect. Make up to four different colors of gelatin. In this case, I made two red cherry flavored and two blue berry flavored Jell-o. After the colors set, you cut them into little cubes and add them to a 9x13 pan.
After that, which set up in 2-3 hours, a simple gelatin is made with sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free). That is poured over the colored Jell-o and chills overnight.
This was a fun addition to our lunch! (So fun to see the Peterson’s and most of the Kennedy’s!)
