Rainbow Jello Recipe


Take a look at this RAINBOW JELLO from Funky Polka Dot Giraffe. Too cute!

Wouldn't this be perfect for so many kinds of spring parties.... anything colorful with rainbows like garden parties, rainbow parties, or even Wizard of Oz parties. You could even go more pastel for Easter parties. Oh, I get so excited when I think of all the ways to use colorful food! Having a Buzz Lightyear party? How about a blue, green, yellow and orange jello combo. A Strawberry Shortcake party.... red, pinks and white. A pool party.... different shades of blues...... this recipe is so versatile.

So now for the how-to.....


- Five 6 oz boxes of Jell-O in 5 different colors
- Two boxes of Knox Gelatin
- One can sweetened condensed milk

Mix 3 packages of Knox gelatin in 1 1/2 cups boiling water until dissolved. Add sweetened condensed milk to Knox gelatin mixture and set aside. Mix 3 packages of Knox gelatin with 1 1/4 cups boiling water until dissolved and set aside. Dissolve 1 box of Jell-O in 1 cup boiling water. (She started with blue because she wanted it on the bottom. You may begin with the color of your choice.) Add 1/4 cup of the Knox gelatin mixture to the Jell-O and pour into a 9"x13" glass dish.

Let the Jello layer set in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Pour 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk mixture over the Jell-O layer. Let sweetened condensed milk layer set up in refrigerator for about 10 minutes. While waiting, repeat Step 3 with the next color.

Repeat Steps 3-7 with the remaining four flavors. (NOTE: Don't try speeding up the process by using the freezer).
