7 Layer Jell-o

7 Layer Jell-o
Jen Cooper

4 colorful layers and 3 milk layers. Start with a color layer, followed by a milk layer, color layer, milk layer ect. You can make another layer while one is cooling. Can take about 2 hours. You can make more than one pan at a time.

4 different jell-o flavors (small boxes) (blue raspberry, strawberry, grape and lime are the best together)
1 14 oz. can eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 big box knox gelatin
9x13 lightly oiled glass pan

Mixing and cooling jell-o layers
1 pack jell-o
1 tsp knox jell-o (approx 1/2 pack)
1 cup boiling water

Mix and let cool at room temperature so that it doesn't melt the layers underneath and ruin the layered look.

The first layer you can just put right in the fridge because there isn't a layer to mess up.

Mixing and cooling milk layers:
2 packs knox jell-o
1 1/2 cups boiling water
dissolve gelatin in water
1 can 14 oz. sweet condensed milk
1 cup hot water

mix sweet milk and water together seperatley, then mix with gelatin water mix
When mix is cool and jell-o has set up carefully pour 1 1/4 cup over the jell-o

watch the milk layer carefully. Mix occasionally. It will get chunky if you leave it alone.

continue your layers after each one has set, let the entire pan chill, then cut into 2x2 inch squares. Makes 24 squares.
