  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

  • Add the condensed milk to the gelatin mixture and stir thoroughly.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the Jello squares and place, covered, in the fridge until firm. (about 2 hours)
  • Remove from fridge and cut into large squares for serving.


*You can use whatever colors/flavors of Jello you'd like. You can also use 4 different colors if Jello, just be sure to choose 4 small boxes and only put in half the water that the box instructions call for.
