Broken Glass Jello/Jelly

My mom’s not a Cake person–she loves a smooth pudding or a cool jello anyday to cake.

So when I saw what seemed like a pudding and Jello combination in Mary’s blog, The Food Librarian, thought it could be pretty interesting to make. (It sure is visually interesting, the innovative stuff she’s done with the jello-condensed milk combo, do take a look)

It is a fun dessert ,esp for kids, they are going to love it and is quite easy to put together as well.The first time I made it, I used different flavoured jellos…lime, raspberry and orange.

Tasted good and is perfect for our sultry Kerala weather, but decided to stick with just one jello flavour the next time I made it – Raspberry- which I felt paired best with the condensed milk.

If you live in humid climes like we do, you will have to work quickly with the set jello as it tends to liquefy and get infused with the condensed milk mixture. If you want those individual vibrant Fuchsian colours of the Jello to stand out, then you will have to work fast and keep the cut jello pieces refrigerated till you set up the whole thing.

It’s perfect to take for Potluck, a lil bit of cool something, to wash down a scrumptious meal. Hope you enjoy.

Broken Glass Jello Ingredients:

4 small boxes (3 oz. each) of Jell-O in different colors or 4 Rex Jelly powder packs.

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk / 1 tin Milkmaid

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin which is 14 gms,2 Tbs or 5 tsps

Broken Glass Jello/Jelly


For each flavor, dissolve one box of jello in one cup of boiling water. Pour into a container and chill (overnight is probably best)

Please note: Only add 1 cup of water to each box of colored Jello. Ignore the instructions on the box of Jello (they say to use 2 cups of water). Use only 1 cup of water so the Jello is firm and can be cut into blocks.

After chilling the four flavors, cut them into small blocks.

Carefully mix the blocks in a pan.

In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water.

After the gelatin blooms, add 1 1/2 cup boiling water and dissolve.

Add the can of condensed milk. Stir and cool. Pour cooled milk mixture over jello and chill overnight.

Unmould and serve.
