As you know, we love to come up with fun recipes with Jell-0. This year for St. Patricks Day, my kids are going to get “lucky” and will be getting St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Jell-o with gold chocolate coins! You can fill up small cups for multiple people (if throwing a party) or fill up large glass mugs for a festive Irish feel. Either way, friends & family will love this adorable treat.
1. Make one batch of white gelatin for the white layers. (I made two separate batches, one at the beginning and one half way through).
a. Bring 1 3/4 cups water to a boil over the stove or microwave. In a microwave safe bowl, add water and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.
b. Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Remove from heat. Slowly stir in 2 1/2 packets of Knox Gelatin.
c. Combine the milk mixture and the gelatin mixture. Let cool.
2. Make first colored layer (working backwards, so start with grape)
a. In a large bowl, add 2 cups boiling water to Jell-o.
b. In a separate bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups cold water with 1/2 cup ice.
c. Add icy water to Jell-o.
d. Let cool to room temperature, by placing in the refrigerator. As one color would be cooling in the fridge, I would prep the next color (I always had two colors in the fridge at a time)
3. Begin your layers.
a. Pour some Jell-o into a measuring cup that has a pouring spout.
b. Pour Jell-o layer into glass to desired height. Try to reduce bubbles by pouring slowly and wipe away any drips on edge of glass.
c. Place glasses in the refrigerator or freezer until the layer is set. (I like to use the freezer to expedite the process… if it gets icy, it won’t hurt it).
d. After the layer is set, pour a thin layer of the cooled milk/gelatin. Try to eyeball how thick you will need each color plus each white layer so it reaches perfectly to the top. I kept my white layers about 1/4″ for this glass style. Place in the refrigerator or freezer until the white layer is set.
a. When you run out of white gelatin, make your second batch to continue layers)
b. Once you fill glasses with your final color, add a Printable Party Flag or Party Logo from one of our St. Patrick’s Day Collections.
