Servings 28 pieces


  • One 6-ounce box red Jello gelatin (strawberry or raspberry)
  • One 6-ounce box blue Jello gelatin (berry blue)
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
  • ½ cup cold water
  • cups boiling water
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk


  • In two separate rectangular pans (9x13-inch is fine), sprinkle each box of Jell-O gelatin. Add 2 cups of boiling water to each pan. Stir until the gelatin dissolves. Put in refrigerator for at least 3 hours, until the liquid turns into jiggly Jell-O.
  • Cut each flavor into small blocks. Carefully mix the blocks in a 9x13-inch pan.
  • In a different bowl, sprinkle 2 pouches of unflavored gelatin into ½ cup of cold water. When the gelatin blooms, add 1½ cups boiling water. Whisk it together until it dissolves. Add the can of sweetened condensed milk. Stir and cool.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the Jell-O blocks and stick it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (or overnight). Then cut into squares and serve.
