When I saw this Mosaic Jello recipe posted by Crafty Mama, I knew that I would make it with my kiddos. Like many other kids, mine just love to help me in the kitchen with baking and cooking, and this dessert is kid friendly, so it was perfect for my little helper!
So here is what you need for your mosaic jello dessert (you may want to follow Crafty Mama, she may explain it better than I do):
- Several different flavored/colored Jello packets (we used 5)
- One 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
- Two unflavored Gelatin packets
- Plastic or glass containers for each colored Jello
Here is how we did it…..
First I put a pot of water on the stove to boil.
Then we poured each powered Jello into it’s own bowl.
Once the water was boiling, we added 1 1/4 cups of water to each bowl and stirred until completely dissolved.
I lightly sprayed each of our plastic containers with PAM, then poured the liquid Jello into each one.
Then we put the Jello in the fridge to set (at least 4 hrs.).

Once the Jello was set, I cut each color into squares and transferred into a Pam-sprayed large glass pan (toss all the squares lightly to mix em’ up).
Next we poured the unflavored Gelatin packets into a bowl with 1/2 cup of cold water and let it sit for about 5 mins.

We added the can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 1/2 cups of boiling water to the Gelatin and stirred until well mixed.
Once the condensed milk, Gelatin, water mix was cool, we poured it over our Jello squares then refrigerated until firm (at least 4 hrs., we set ours overnight).
The kids were so excited this morning when we cut them up and put them in their lunch bags for snack.
Yes, it’s kind of a weird combo with the condensed milk, but they taste YUMMY (so my kiddos told me!).
