  • JELL-O Gelatin Preparation Tip: If you've added the boiling water to the dry JELL-O Gelatin and cannot get the gelatin to completely dissolve, place the gelatin in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH 30 sec. This should bring up the temperature of the water to a point where it is hot enough to completely dissolve the gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved.
  • Variation: Use 8x4-inch loaf pan. Unmold, then slice to serve.

We LOVED these for Christmas and will enjoy making this recipe again. My husband & Iworked on this together. It was very easy and fun.


Just made this for my fiancé and he loved it. We are in Australia and therefore used an Aussie jelly brand. Will make again, it's very pretty for company!


I used SF jello and FF condensed sweet milk to make this colorful dessert. The thing that I didn't like about this is that I ended up having two very distinct layers. The instructions say to cool the sweet milk mixture "slightly," but I think it really needs to start to jell a bit, and then you mix in the jello cubes. The cubes were lighter and, therefore, rose to the top. I'm going to try this again preparing it that way, and hopefully, the jello cubes will be more evenly distributed throughout the dessert. But that's really just a presentation thing; we like jello, and we enjoyed this fun and slightly-sweet dessert.
