Red, White, and Blue Broken Glass Jello

Have you ever seen broken glass Jello? It is really pretty, it is several different kinds of Jello cut into squares and then mixed together to look like "broken glass". I recently saw this post for red, white, and blue broken glass Jello and thought it would be great for the Fourth of July.

This broken glass Jello is fun to make. You can change the colors to make it for any holiday. To make this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 6-oz. box red Jello
  • 1 6-oz. box blue Jello
  • 2 envelopes KNOX unflavored Gelatin
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk*

*Note: If you don't have sweetened condensed milk on hand, try this easy, inexpensive homemade version.

For the red and blue Jello, dissolve each box of Jello in one cup of boiling water. Pour into separate containers and chill for at least 3 hours. I used two 8x8-inch baking pans.

After the Jello is set, cut each pan of Jello into approximately 1-inch by 1-inch cubes. Arrange the cubes in a 13x9-inch baking dish.

In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. Add 1 1/2 cups boiling water and dissolve. Stir in the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over Jello squares in the 13x9-inch pan and chill 3 more hours or overnight. Note: Make sure the milk mixture is completely cooled before you pour it over the Jello cubes or they will melt slightly and the colors will run together.

Cut the finished Jello into squares, and enjoy! This makes a very attractive side dish to serve at summer and Fourth of July get togethers.
