Everyone will want to know how you made them because they’re so impressive looking. They’re often called broken Jello glass because they look like broken pieces of stained glass. However, they are VERY easy to make!

Blue Jello

Ingredients

  1. Cherry jello dry mix – or strawberry flavor as long as it is red jello
  2. Berry blue jello dry mix – use whatever blue jello flavor that you want
  3. Envelope of unflavored gelatin – you can find this with flavored jello in the grocery store. This is going to be for the white parts of the stars since they don’t make white jello
  4. Sweetened condensed milk – this adds a delicious taste to the white layer of Jello!
  5. Water – both boiling water and cold water
Blue Jello

Instructions:

Using 2 large bowls, mix the red Jello and the blue Jello packets with water. Stir until no more dry mix remains in the water. Place the liquid Jello in your refrigerator for 3 hours for it to set.

How to make broken glass Jello

Once the red and blue Jello has set, loosen it out of the bowl by sitting the bowl in hot water. Remove the Jello from the bowls, and cut them into 1-inch cubes. Scatter the red layer and the blue layer of squares in a rectangular baking dish or pan.

How to make broken glass Jello

Mix boiling water with the unflavored gelatin in a large pot or bowl. Quickly stir in the can of sweetened condensed milk to make white Jello and let the mixture come to room temperature.

Once cooled, pour the white gelatin over the cubes of red and blue Jello and place it in your refrigerator for another 3 hours so the white layer can set.

Once the condensed milk mixture is set, remove it from the rectangular dish and place it on a piece of parchment paper.  Using a star cookie cutter (in various sizes, if desired), cut out red, white, and blue Jello stars! If you don’t have cookie cutters, cut out red, white, and blue Jello squares instead!
