Valentine Mosaic Jello

graphic45This time of year love is in the air and on your dinner plates 🙂 

This week we will share foods that offer amorous aphrodisiac qualities, quotes from romantic greats to provide sweet nothings and lovely ideas to surround your loves with love.

Here’s a sweet, Valentine colored and aesthetically pleasing addition.

Ingredients:

1 – 6 oz (big box) of Cherry Jell-O

1 – 6 oz (big box) of Peach Jell-O

If you are going for the Valentine’s colors, you can use Strawberry, Watermelon (this comes out pink), or Raspberry.

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (don’t get evaporated milk)

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin; Knox preferred

Directions:

For a 4 color dessert, dissolve each 3 oz box of jello in one cup of boiling water. For this 2-color dessert, dissolve each 6 oz box of Jello in TWO cups boiling water. Pour into a container and chill (overnight is best; chill for at least 4 hours until firm). After chilling the flavors, cut each flavor into small blocks. Carefully scatter and mix the blocks in a 9 x 13 pan.

In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. After the gelatin blooms (just a few minutes), add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over jello. Skim off the bubbles for a nicer finish. Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight. Cut into blocks. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve! Enjoy the Love!

    Adorable!

    1. Thank you, Osyth! I’m typically not a Jell-o fan–memories of cow hooves as a child thing, I think 🙂 lol! But these are very tasty! I also now know as an adult that Jell-o is sans bovine ingredients 🙂
