Stained Glass Jello


Grab your kids and get them in the kitchen!  There’s no better, quicker, or easier way to bring together a bunch of children and get them making something yummy and pretty than Stained Glass Jello.  A perfect accompaniment to Easter meals, Sunday dinners, and springtime buffets. 

Stained Glass Jell-O

For the colored pieces:

  • 4 packets jello in varying colors
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups ice cold water

For the white outer layer

  • 3 packets Knox gelatin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt

Pour each of the colored jello packets into a medium, glass or ceramic bowl.  Whisk 1 cup of boiling water into each of the bowls. Once the gelatin powder has dissolved, whisk 3/4 cups of ice-cold water into each bowl.  Cover the bowls tightly with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to set, about 1 hour.

Once the colored jello has set, remove it from the fridge and use a butter knife to slice each bowl into several splintered pieces.  Place 1 cup of water in a large bowl and sprinkle the gelatin on top, allow it to sit and soften for 1 minute, then whisk in the boiling water and sugar.  Whisk in the yogurt and stir until smooth.  Pour this mixture into a 9×13 pyrex pan.  Carefully drop the stained glass jello pieces into the white gelatin mixture.  Cover with plastic wrap, return to the fridge, and refrigerate for an additional hour until set.
