Stained Glass Jello Christmas Tree

A few years ago I found two holiday cake tins for 68¢ at Goodwill and the other day I thought I'd use one to make a fun Stained Glass Jello Christmas Tree Treat. I cut the recipe in half and two boxes of Jello (I got creative and used red and green:@) were enough to generously fill one pan. I will say as a point of reference, I ~loaded~ the pan with red and green, so I only used about half of the condensed milk mixture.

 Here's a pic of what the cut Jello looks like, very festive!
 And kids do really get a kick out of this Jello Jiggler ~eat it with your fingers~ type of dessert! 
Of course you can make this in a square or rectangular pan and simply cut it into bite size pieces. Kraft suggests four boxes of Jello for a 9x13 pan. The link I've provided to Kraft has a nice step-by-step video.

Stained Glass Jello Bars-from Kraft
5 1/2 C boiling water, divided
4 packages of 4 serving size Jello, assorted colors/flavors
2 envelopes unflavored Knox gelatin
1/2 C cold water
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  1. Mix 1 C boiling water into each color of Jello (separately). Spray containers/dishes with flat bottoms with food spray. Pour Jello into individual containers/dishes. Chill for 2 hours or until set.
  2. Sprinkle unflavored gelatine over 1/2 C cold water, let stand 1 minute. Stir in remaining 1 1/2 C boiling water, stir. Add condensed milk, mix well. Cool slightly.
  3. Cut flavored Jello into cubes and randomly place into 9x13 dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Pour milk mixture over Jello, evenly distribute Jello cubes. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm before cutting into bars. *They don't mention it, but I did put the bottom of my pan in warm water for a couple seconds to help unmold the tree onto a serving dish.
Make some holiday memories and have a happy day:@)

  1. This is adorable Lynn! I love the stained glass effect!

  2. Love that stained glass look, Lynn! I have a Christmas tree jello mold and that would be perfect to use for the kids.
    I also love your festive red and green pasta. You're in the Christmas mode, my friend!

  3. That is really pretty! You find the best stuff, Lynn ;)

  4. I will definitely be making this!

  5. This is beautiful!!! So fun and festive. I wish I could eat green jello---my mom made some awful concoction with lime jello and celery! Spoiled me for life, LOL, but I may just have to bite the bullet and give this a try.
