    Recipe Introduction

    This is such a pretty treat - kids of all ages devour it in minutes. It tastes as good as it looks.

    List of Ingredients

    5 3 oz. jell-o's, layered in this order:
    grape, lime, lemon, orange, raspberry
    7 envelopes Knox gelatin
    1 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk


    1. Make the following mixture with sw. cond. milk: Mix together 1 c. cold water and 2 env. gelatin. Stir to dissolve. In a 4 cup measure, mix together 1 c. boiling water and 1 can sw. cond. milk; add gelatin mixture to milk mixture. Set aside.
    2. Jello mixture: Starting with the grape jello, in a 2 cup glass measuring cup, dissolve it with 3/4 cup boiling water. Soften 1 env. gelatin with 1/4 cup cold water. Add dissolved jello to softened gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved. Pour into lightly oiled 9x13 pan. Place in fridge and let set for 20 minutes. Be sure pan is level. Start next jello with same procedure immediately so jello has time to cool. After first jello has set, pour a scant 3/4 cup sweetened cond. milk mixture over it and spread evenly. Let set in fridge for 15 minutes. Layer next jello (lime) over milk mixture and continue alternating jello and milk, ending with raspberry on top. After jello has completely set, cut in squares, then triangles to serve.

    NOTES : This can be customized for Christmas - alternating red and green jello, 4th of July - alternating blue and red (the milk layer adds the white), and Easter - alternating purple and yellow.
