Finger Jello:


A friend at church made this and I just loved it! I will admit that this does take forever to make, but it's so pretty, it's worth the time! Change up the colors to make it for whatever you want! Red and Green for Christmas and Blue and Red for the fourth of July and make as many layers as you want! The trick is to read down through this whole recipe and get everything out and organized before you start.  It can be slightly confusing, so I will try to write it simple and clear!

3 (3 oz.) pkgs. red Jello, any flavor you want
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. lime Jello
2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
9 envelopes Plain Knox Gelatin

Spray a 9x13 baking dish lightly with cooking spray. Fill a tea kettle or large pot with water and bring to a boil; keep boiling until the dish is done.
1. In a large glass measuring cup, mix 1 envelope Knox gelatin with 1/4 cup cold water. Add 1 cup boiling water and 1 box of red jello. Mix slowly until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour into the 9x13 baking dish. and chill for 30 minutes.
2. In a small glass measuring cup, stir 2 envelopes of Knox gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water and stir until dissolved. Pour 1 can of milk into a medium bowl. Stir in 1 cup boiling water. Pour Knox gelatin mixture into the milk mixture and mix well. Add 1/2 cup boiling water. Pour half of this mixture over the set red jello. Chill for another 30 minutes.
3. Repeat step #1, using green jello, and chill for 30 minutes 
4. Add the other half of the creamy, milk mixture over the green jello and chill for 30 minutes.
5. Repeat step #1, using red jello and chill for 30 minutes.
6. Repeat step #2, pouring half the mixture over the set red jello and chill for 30 minutes.
7. Repeat step #1 using green jello; chill for 30 minutes.
8. Add the other half of the creamy, milk mixture over the green jello and chill for 30 minutes.
9. Repeat step #1 using red jello. Chill the entire thing for at least 2 hours to ensure that everything is completely set. Cut into 2 inch squares and place on a serving plate to serve! Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
