This variation of jello dessert doesn't have to be restricted to kids and hospital-patients. The colors and flavors coming from different jello is a treat to both the eyeballs and the taste-buds. I came to know this recipe from 4thSenseCooking, a blog that is full of artistic, simple and straight-forward recipes that I have come to love.What is the 4th Sense?? Taste, which is one amongst the 6 senses a human has. So the name roughly translates to Tasty cooking. Nithya of 4thSenseCooking says that this recipe of hers is an adapted version from another blog, The Food Librarian who in turn adapted it from someone else. The way this recipe is propagating its sure to become a popular guilt-free treat if it hasn't already.
- Jello - 1 1/2 tbsp each of Lime, Grape, Raspberry, Blueberry and Peach Flavors
- Evaporated Milk - 1, 5 oz can
- Gelatin - 1 Envelope of Knox Brand
- Hot Water
- Cold Water
- 1/4-cup Measuring cup (Wherever I mention cup, this is the cup I would be using, Cup = 1/4 Measuring Cup)
- Jello: Dissolve each flavored jello in 2/3rd cup of hot water. Once the jello dissolves, add 2/3rd cup of cold water. Repeat for all flavors. Move them into individual cups and refrigerate overnight.
- Roughly chop the jello into cubes and add then to a 9 X 11 inch pan. Doesn't have to be perfect cubes since they are Shards after all.
- In a separate bowl, add the unflavored gelatin and dissolve it in 1/2 cup of cold water. Once the gelatin blooms, add 1 cup of cold water. Cool the mixture. Add the 5 oz evaporated milk and pour this into the pan with cubed Jello.
- Refrigerate it overnight and cut it different shapes resembling a glass-shard.
- It is important that the Jello cubes are firm for making precise cubes.
