Ingredients

  • 1 6-ounce package Berry Blue Jello
  • 1 14-ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 6-ounce package Cherry Jello
  • 6 1-Tablespoon packets Unflavored Gelatin
  • Optional: Wilton Edible Stars , patriotic cupcake toppers

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 13 by 9-inch baking dish by spraying with non-stick spray and wipe around the bottom and side of the pan with a paper towel to coat evenly.

Layer 1/Bottom (blue layer):

  1. Dissolve 2 packages unflavored gelatin in 1 cup of cold water. Set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan bring 1 cup of water to a boil; add the Berry Blue Jello. Return to a boil, stirring to dissolve the jello and remove from heat.

  3. Add the gelatin mixture and ½ cup cold water to the saucepan and stir to fully combine and dissolve any solids.

  4. Pour into the prepared pan and place in the refrigerator on a level surface to ensure even layering. Allow to set.

Layer 2 (white jello):

  1. In a small mixing bowl combine ½ cup cold water and 2 packets of gelatin; stir. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup boiling water. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the gelatin and an additional ½ cup of boiling water. Allow to cool to room temperature (15-20 minute approximately). Note: if this layer is poured onto the first layer prior to cooling it will release some of the jello into the white layer.
  4. Once cooled, pour onto the first layer of blue jello and allow to set in the refrigerator (again on a level surface).

Layer 3/Top (red jello):

  1. Dissolve 2 packages unflavored gelatin in 1 cup of cold water. Set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan bring 1 cup of water to a boil; add the Cherry Jello. Return to a boil, stirring to dissolve the jello and remove from heat.

  3. Add the gelatin mixture and ½ cup cold water to the saucepan and stir to fully combine and dissolve any solids.

  4. Allow to cool to room temperature pour onto the second layer of white jello. Allow to fully set for a few hours or overnight (on a level surface).

Cutting the Layered Finger Jello:

  1. Spray a sharp knife with non-stick spray and cut the jello into squares or rectangles (spraying with non-stick spray allows smooth cutting); 6 horizontal rows each cut evenly into 5 pieces. Use a metal spatula to life jello out of the pan. Sprinkle with edible stars just before serving.
  2. Store any extra jello in the pan, covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
