Stained Glass Jello

I’m not exactly a huge Jello fan, but these looked to fun and festive not to try.
And I’m always a fan of simple recipes that are fun to make with kiddos.
The girls had fun picking out the colors to use (they picked a festive mix of red, green, yellow, and orange).  They reminded us of stained glass windows or colorful Christmas lights.
We cut ours out in squares and some in the shape of ornaments using a cookie cutter.
You could change the colors for a variety of holidays, I think pink and red would be really cute for Valentine’s Day.
4 small (3 oz) packages Jello, flavors/colors of choice
2 packets unflavored gelatin
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Line up 4 containers (I used bread pans) or tupperware and spray each with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Line up 4 bowl and place a package of Jello in each bowl.  Bring over 4 cups of water to a boil and add 1 cup of boiling water to each bowl.
Pour each bowl of Jello into one of the prepared pans.  Let set for a few hours to overnight, until set.
Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup of cold water in a medium bowl.   Let sit for a few minutes.  Bring 1 1/2 cup water to a boil (either in the microwave or on the stovetop).  Mix into the gelatin and then add the milk.  Whisk until smooth and well combined.  Let cool slightly while you prepare the Jello.
Cut the chilled pans of colored Jello into squares.  Spray a 9 by 13 inch pan with nonstick spray, then pour the colored cubes of Jello in the pan.
Gently toss, then pour the milk mixture (at room temperature) over them.
If any of the cubes are poking out, just re-arrange the cubes a little so that they are all covered with the milk mixture.  Let chill before cutting into squares or use cookie cutters to cut into shapes.
