Red, White & Blue Jello Cups


The kids LOVED making these Red, White & Blue Jello Cups!!


Ingredients:


3 ounces of raspberry jello 3 ounces of blueberry jello 1 can of sweetened condensed milk 1/4 cup unflavored gelatin Reddi wip Sprinkles

**You will also need clear plastic cups!


Directions:


To make the red layer, bring one cup of water to a boil. Stir in 3 ounces of raspberry jello until fully dissolved. Then add one more cup of water. Stir. Spoon the red mixture into the plastic cups, filling each about a third full. Place the baking sheet of cups into the refrigerator to quickly set the jello.


To make the white layer, pour a half cup of cold water into a ball and sprinkle 1/4 cup of unflavored gelatin into the water. Let it sit for a few minutes. Then add 1/2 cup of boiling water to the mix.


Boil 1/2 cup of water. Add the can of sweetened condensed milk. Then add your unflavored gelatin mix to the sweetened condensed milk mixture and stir thoroughly. Let it cool, and then spoon the mixture on top of the red layer of jello. Put it back in the refrigerator to set.


To make the blue layer, bring one cup of water to a boil. Stir in 3 ounces of blueberry jello until fully dissolved. Then add one more cup of water. Add the blue mixture on top of the white layer of jello, and then place back in the refrigerator to set.


Top it with Reddi-wip and sprinkles! Enjoy!
