I know this post is a little late – but you can use this recipe to make other “themed” jello squares. Such as red jello for Valentine’s Day, red & blue jello cubes for the Fourth of July – the possibilities are endless.
Shamrock Jello Squares
2 .6 oz boxes of jello mix (I used two boxes of sugar free jello of the same flavor- but you can change it up by using two different flavors)
4 envelopes of gelatin
1 14 oz can of condense milk
5 C boiling water
1) Combine the jello with two gelatin envelopes. Add 3 C of boiling water. Whisk until dissolved. Pour jello mixture through a sieve into a rectangular dish (I used a glass 9×13 pan). Set in fridge to set for at least 3 hours. (If you are doing two different colors -mix: one box of jello, one envelope of gelatin & 1 ½C of boiling water)
2) Once jello is set, cut into small cubes. Lightly spray rectangular dish with cooking spray and place jello cubes into dish. Set back into fridge.
3) Pour condense milk into bowl, whisk in 2 envelopes of gelatin, add 2 C of boiling water and continue to whisk until gelatin has dissolved. Pour condense milk through a sieve and let cool down before pouring over jello squares. (if the condense milk mixture is too hot, it will melt the jello squares)
4) Pour condense milk mixute over jello squares and set in fride to set. When are you ready to serve, cut into squares, or any shape that you like. Serve cold.
*I pour through a sieve to catch any gelatin lumps that did not dissolve – no one wants lumpy jello
