I hope that everyone is enjoying their Labor day weekend! 🙂 We are spending our weekend laboring, hehe. My husband and dad are in the process of turning one of the basement rooms into an office! Perhaps I will share more on that later. 🙂
Today I wanted to share an easy treat: Jello Cream Squares. These things are very addictive!
You will need:
3 (3 oz.) boxes of Jell-O (any colors you like) I used 2 orange and 1 strawberry
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
Prepare the Jell-O using 1 cup of hot water per flavor in three separate containers. Chill for 4 hours until the Jell-O has set up. Cut the Jell-O into pieces (they do not have to be uniform).
Place Jello pieces in a 13×9 pan. (Keep them in the refrigerator until ready to add the white layer). In a separate bowl mix the 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin with 1/2 cup cold water. Add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and stir until dissolved.
Mix in the sweetened condensed milk.
Allow the milk mixture to cool and then pour over the Jell-O cubes.
Chill for 4 hours or overnight.
After the mixture sets up cut into squares and serve.
I chose red and orange for fall colors, but the color combinations are as many as there are flavors and colors of jello. I think I will make red and green for Christmas! 🙂
