The Story Of Three: Patriotic Stars

Patriotic Stars

I've been experimenting with Jell-O & gelatin this summer & after googling white Jell-O, I realized it didn't exist! They do make white pudding but I wasn't sure how it would hold up, so I was able to figure out an easy way to make it (after only 1 failed attempt) on my own & make these fun Patriotic Stars! The first time I made these - the layers didn't set right, so the second time I just froze everything! This wasn't a hard recipe but it did have several easy steps, I can't wait to make them again!

  • A few star cookie cutters
  • A box of Cherry Jell-O or store brand red gelatin
  • A box of Berry Blue Jell-O or store brand blue gelatin
  • A box of unflavored gelatin
  • A can of 14 oz of Sweet Condensed Milk 

  • Prepare your blue Jell-O first as according to the box
  • Pour the liquid Jell-O into an 8x8 glass baking dish - at this time set your cookie cutters in the tray (I used 3 in my pan)
  • Freeze for 30 mins to an hour or until it's set
  • In a medium bowl mix 1 cup of boiling water with the condensed milk & set aside
  • In another medium bowl, mix 3 of your unflavored gelatin packets with 1/2 cup of cold water
  • Add in 1/2 cup of boiling water & stir
  • Add your unflavored gelatin mix to your bowl of condensed milk, stir well
  • Carefully scoop out (I used a 1/4 measuring cup) the contents of your bowl onto your blue Jell-O (in the cookie cutters) to make a thin white layer
  • Place your pan back in the freezer for 30 mins to an hour or until it's set
  • Prepare your red Jell-O as according to the box
  • Slowly pour the contents into your cookie cutters in your pan, this is your top & final layer 
  • Place your pan back in the freezer for 30 mins to an hour or until it's set
  • I wiggled the cookie cutters out of the pan, then the Jell-O popped right out of the cookie cutters & I placed them in the fridge for a few minutes before we enjoyed them!
