Holiday Glass Block Jello

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs "Our Best Bites" and thought it was so creative and fun! When Isabella saw it she begged me to make it for her class Christmas party. I had to try it! This was not difficult at all! I got tons of questions about how in the world I got white jello and a lot of people who asked for the recipe.

Holiday Glass Block Jello

  • 4 3oz boxes of assorted color jello
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
The first thing you want to do is get the containers ready for the jello. You can use rubbermaid containers or any reusable plastic container if you want. Spray the inside of the containers with cooking spray and set aside.

Boil 5+ cups of water to a boil. You will combine each packet of jello with 1 cup of water and stir to combine. Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight.

(notice that I only used three colors...that was a mistake on my part! I ended up making two batches of the red color)

When the colored jello is ready you can move on to the next step. In a small bowl combine the 2 packets of unflavored gelatin with 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir together. It will not look pretty and that doesn't matter, at all. Let it sit for a few minutes while you bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil.

Pour the boiling water over the unflavored gelatin and add the sweetened condensed milk. Mix thoroughly. Allow the mixture to cool.

While you are waiting for it to cool you can work on cutting the jello into cubes. Using a small sharp knife (paring knife works best), cut the jello into small cubes.

Spray a 9x13 pan lightly with cooking spray and then lay the jello in the bottom of the dish.

Try to mix the colors up a little and give it a nice look! :) When the milk mixture is cooled, pour it over the top of the jello cubes.

Refrigerate it on a level surface in the refrigerator overnight (minimum of 8 hours) and then cut into desired size squares or shapes.

Be prepare for lots of questions on how you made these! Thanks again to Our Best Bites for another fantastic idea!
