I remember eating this as a kid, the fun part is the magical Jello separation. I thought this would be the perfect recipe to go with my baby shower party colors.
While the Broken Glass Jell-o and Layered Jello are gorgeous, this is pretty too in it’s own way, and oh so tasty.
2 large packages (6 oz each) Jell-o (any flavor)
1 packet of unflavored Knox gelatin
4 cups boiling water
half of a container of vanilla ice cream about 3/4 quart
In a large bowl combine the Jell-o, unflavored gelatin and the boiling water. Whisk until dissolved.
Now you want to quickly add the ice cream until it is melted and combined. I’ve found that exactly half of a container works well. Now, they’ve changed the size of these things, believe it or not, so one container of ice cream is now actually 1.5 quarts, it is no longer a half gallon!
Once mixed well, pour into a 9″ x 13″ pan. Refrigerate overnight, cut into squares and serve. If you are doing this for a party, I suggest putting the cut pieces into cupcake liners.
The ice cream will magically float to the top of the jello and you will have a creamy+jello concoction that looks like it took a lot of prep work. GREAT for parties!!
