Sandy's Famous Jello Squares

Sandy hosted a Tupperware party recently and served these delightful Jello Squares. We were all impressed with the squares, and had a lot of fun decorating them with whipped cream using the new Squeeze It Decorator. It was fun for both kids and adults! Thanks Sandy for sharing your family recipe with us!

Sandy's Famous Jello Squares

4 small packages - different coloured Jello
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
7 packets Knox Unflavoured Gelatin

Divide the condensed milk into 3 equal parts, 1/3 cup each.

Add 2/3 cup of boiling water and 1 pkg of gelatin to each 1/3 cup of milk, stirring well after addition.

To each pkg of Jello add 1 pkg of gelatin and 1 cup of boiling water. Stir well.

Pour one cooled Jello mixture into a 9" X 12" Tupperware Prep Essentials Cold Cut Keeper, and place in fridge on level shelf for 20 minutes.

Pour milk mixture onto set Jello layer and place back in fridge for 20 minute while this layer sets.

Repeat, alternating Jello with milk mixture and placing in fridge for 20 minutes in between.

Tip: Don't let the layers set too long or the Jello will become too hard and the layers will separate.

Also, be sure to use a Tupperware container to layer the Jello in, as the squares will stick to metal. You could substitute a glass 9" X 13" pan in a pinch.

Before serving place container in warm water for a few minutes for the edges to soften. Then cut with a wet knife into 1" squares or diamonds being careful not to cut your container. Serve on plate or in small decorative muffin cups.


Note: This recipe might seem a little time consuming at first, but with practice you'll have it down pat... then you'll be famous just like Sandy!
