Jello Mello :)



Jello Mello1

Jello Mello is a very interesting twist added to the easily made jelly that kids and kids by heart enjoy. :)

It looks pretty exciting and would make people take a second look and thought of how it was made before eating it. :)

I got this idea from a fellow blogger who calls herself "The Food Librarian" and she truly is one. Do visit her blog to see more exciting recipes.

This marble like looking delight was surely a hit at home. :) :) :)



Jello Mello


Ingredients:

Jelly crystals - 3 boxes of different flavors. (Brands could be REX, China grass, Weikfield etc.)
Milk maid(Condensed milk) - 3/4 cup
Water - 1 1/2 cups
Gelatin - 4 tsp(or as per the pack instructions)


Method:

Make jelly as per the instructions given in the pack. Use a little less water than what they ask you to use so that the jelly is a little firm to cut. Now set it in 3 different trays. I used raspberry, orange and lime. Leave it in the refrigerator over night or at least for 3 hours.

After chilling the three flavors, cut them into small cubes. Now mix them carefully in a larger pan(tray/mould) and keep it aside.

Now in a separate bowl, take 4 tsp of gelatin and dissolve it by adding 1/2 cup of hot water. (some brands of gelatin requires cold water to bloom and some ask for hot water. So proceed according to the pack instructions for this step).

Once it dissolves, add the remaining 1 cup of water and 3/4 cup of condensed milk to it and mix well.

Now pour the milk mixture over the mixed cubes of jelly and set over night in the refrigerator.

The condensed milk layer was suppose to be perfectly white in color. But the culprit orange jelly gave out its color to the white layer making it kind of dull orangish too. :( Anyways it tasted awesome so no issues about the color.

Cut them into desired shapes and serve. :) Happy making. :)

Note:

If you find vanilla flavored milk based china grass powder in the store you can very well use it instead of the condensed milk mixture to make this.

People who don't prefer gelatin in their food can substitute it with china grass.
