Yamashita's Rainbow Jello

 I went to a bridal shower a year ago for our beautiful friend, Erin. At her shower, her family had made Rainbow Jello. How had I lived my life without ever having been introduced to this tasty miracle? I finally got the recipe from her.

Here's what you need:
6 small boxes of Jello (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
9 envelopes of Knox unflavoured gelatin
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

* Spray 9x13 pan with Pam
* To 1 1/4 cup boiling water, add 1 envelope of Knox Gelatin. Wait one minute, then stir until dissolved.
* Add first flavour of Jello. Stir until dissolved.
* Pour into pan and refrigerate until set.
* Meanwhile, dissolve 3 envelopes of Knox in 2 cups boiling water.
* Combine with Sweetened Condensed Milk. Allow to cool to lukewarm.
* Pour a little more than 1/2 cup milk mixture over Jello and return to fridge to set while preparing 2nd colour.
* Maintain milk mixture at lukewarm so that it does not set or melt Jello.
* Continue alternating milk and jello, finishing with Jello layer.
* When thoroughly chilled, cut into squares, then cut squares into triangles.
* Serve

My mom used to make this! I think the colors were different but I remember thinking the layers were soooo cool!

Thanks for joining my blog! I saw your profile picture and had to come over and visit! I see you have twins who are autistic. Bless you, mom! :)
