We first saw this recipe on a blog from Hawaii about a year ago...and I am still searching for it to give it credit. While looking for it we came upon
this recipe used to make 4th of July stars at
BrownEyedBaker They were so pretty that we were inspired to try it ourselves.
4 (3 ounce) Boxes of Jello
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)
Containers for each color
9 x 13 inch pan
1 inch Star Cutters or cutters of choice
- For each flavor, dissolve one box of Jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Pour into a square container about 6 x 8 inches and chill three hours
- After jello is set, cut into small blocks. We cut them into about 1/2 inch blocks.
- Place all the jello blocks into a 9 x 13 inch pan and carefully mix.
- In a separate bowl, mix two envelops of unflavored gelatin with 1/2 cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, and 1 1/2 cups boiling water and dissolve.
- Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and let cool.
- Pour cooled condensed milk mixture over Jello blocks in the 9 x 13 pan.
- Skim off any small bubbles that are created when you pour the condensed milk on the Jello pieces.
- Chill a minimum of three hours or overnight.
- Cut with cookie cutter and arrange on plate.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Don't forget to skim the bubbles...we did not do that and the bubbles will stay in your jello!
The top will remain the side you want visible after cutting.
A one inch high cutter works best rather than a shallow cutter. Simple shapes also work best.
