One of his haunts is a blog called The Food Librarian, and he found a recipe there for Broken Glass Jello which was adapted from another blog, http://justjennrecipes.com. As soon as he showed it to me, I knew it would be my next pick. And so it is. Here's the pic from The Food Librarian's blog:
I'll be happy to skip my weekly trip to the store to stock up on butter and eggs! I think I have quite a few packets of uneaten Jell-O in my cupboard. I wonder how it'll turn out if I use a mix of sugarefree and regular Jell-O? Maybe I'll try and see...
Broken Glass Jello
(Adapted from The Food Librarian, which was in-turn adapted from JustJenn)
4 small boxes (3 oz. each) of Jell-O or store brand "gelatin dessert" in different colors.
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
For each flavor, dissolve one box of jello in one cup of boiling water. Pour into a container and chill until firm (overnight is probably best).
After chilling the four flavors, cut them into small blocks.
Carefully mix the blocks in a 9 x 13 pan.
In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms, add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over jello and chill overnight.
Cut into blocks or shapes and serve!
