Jello Cream Squares

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! 🙂
