Christmas Layered JELL-O

Christmas Layered JELL-O

I made this dessert for Christmas and everyone not only loved how it looked, but loved how it tasted.  There are several variations of this recipe and I made some of my own to the one I used.  Here’s what is needed:

Lots of time!

13×9 Glass dish

Several glass bowls

Whisk

2- 3 oz. packages Cherry JELL-O

2- 3 oz. packages Lime JELL-O

2- 3 oz. packages Strawberry Banana JELL-O

Box Knox Original Gelatin

Large tub Vanilla yogurt

1-2 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk

Directions:

1.  Spray a little non-stick coating on glass dish.

2. Red/light red layers: Put each Cherry JELL-O powder in a glass bowl.  Boil 2 cups water and each bowl gets a cup.  Mix JELL-O and water well.  Put aside one bowl.  To the other bowl, add 2/3 cup yogurt and mix until yogurt is dissolved.  Pour first bowl into glass dish and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.  Then pour in second “yogurt” bowl.  Refrigerate another 30 minutes.

3. White layer: Put two packages Knox gelatin in a glass bowl. Boil 2 cups water and add to gelatin.  Mix well.  Add 1 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk.  Mix well and divide in half into 2 bowls.  Put one bowl aside for step 5.  Allow other bowl to cool a bit then add to glass dish.

4. Green/light green layer:  Put each Lime JELL-O powder in a glass bowl.  Boil 2 cups water and each bowl gets a cup.  Mix JELL-O and water well.  Put aside one bowl.  To the other bowl, add 2/3 cup yogurt and mix until yogurt is dissolved.  Note: you will need to allow the bowls to cool.  You may put first bowl in freezer for 3-4 minutes before pouring into dish.  Refrigerate 30-40 minutes.  Pour in second “yogurt” bowl.  Refrigerate 30 minutes.

5. White layer: Take the remaining bowl of “white” and pour it into dish. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

6.  Pink/light pink layer: Repeat step 4 with Strawberry Banana JELL-O.

7.  Leave completed dish in fridge for at least 24 hours.  When ready to serve you can either turn dish over onto a plate and allow your guests to cut off desired slice or you can cut cubes of JELL-O and place in a slotted bowl for serving.  I chose to cut into cubes which is prettiest, however the layers did start to come apart a little as it sat out of the fridge.

Good luck!
