Put your first Colour Jelly Crystals into a jug, then add hot water according to jelly packet instructions. Sprinkle 1 Envelope/Packet of Gelatine into the jelly mix and agitate with a fork to dissolve the Jelly Crystals and Gelatine. Add cold water according to jelly packet instructions.

  • Pour first colour into a square or rectangular Pyrex dish. Place in freezer for about 15 minutes or until firm.
  • Pour a layer of the white condensed milk layer and put in freezer to set.
  • Continue with all the other colours making sure there is a layer of the white in between each colour.
  • If the white mixture starts to set while you are waiting then place in the microwave for a few seconds to liquefy.
  •  Once set cut into small squares to serve

  1. These look great! I’d really like to make these for my sons birthday. Can I double check re the gelatine, did you use 4 tablespoons of gelatine powder? Can you remember the brand you used? I know different brands have different ‘bloom’ strengths.
    Also, which size tin of Condensed milk did you use?
