Jello is a very strange food, in my opinion. Its obscenely bright color, its jiggly wiggly consistency and the fact that it’s made from animal fat should put anyone off eating it! However, kids (and adults) have loved Jello for years. My grandmother used to serve it to the kids in our family for dessert – usually strawberry Jello with whipped cream.
But out of all the years I’ve seen Jello in its many forms and molds, I have never seen a creation such as stained glass Jello from The Food Librarian. When I originally saw a photo of the stained glass Jello on either TasteSpotting or FoodGawker, I can’t remember which now, it immediately got placed on my to-do list.
It looks awesome! It tastes good too, and both of my children could not get enough of it. It was my 2-year-old son’s first experience with Jello and he was totally fascinated with its jiggliness. For me, the hardest part I had getting around was the sweetened condensed milk in this; it just seems so weird to add gelatin to it!
The stained glass Jello is great project to do with kids, so on the next rainy day, I’d highly suggest making this!
On a totally separate note, I apologize to those of you who may have tried to access The Sweetest Kitchen in the past few days and have been getting errors or warning messages. Something went wrong behind-the-scenes (through no fault of my own) and I had been trying to contact support and not getting much help. Everything should be fixed now, hopefully!
