Broken Glass Jello Recipe

I have wanted to post this Broken Glass Jello recipe for so long. This was always a favorite Jello recipe of mine growing up. My mom would always make it for Thanksgiving dinner.

Now that I have kids, they won’t go a Thanksgiving without having my mom make her famous Glass Jello! 

Ingredients

  • 4 small boxes of jello (3 oz), different colors
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • Water
Broken Glass Jell-O Ingredients

How to Make Broken Glass Jello

  1. Dissolve each box of jello into its own small plastic container (using 1 cup of boiling water per flavor) and chill overnight or until solid.
  2. Cut each of the different flavors into small squares or cubes.
How to make Broken Glass Jello
  1. Using a 9×13 glass dish, mix the cubes gently together. You just want to mix them up, so be very careful not to break them up. 
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, dissolve 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin in 2 cups of hot water. Let the hot mixture cool slightly and then mix in the sweetened condensed milk.
    Pour mixture over jello cubes
  3. Let cool completely (it should be cool to your touch). Pour the condensed milk and gelatin mixture over the cubes of Jello. 
  4. Chill in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. Cut and serve.

Important Tips

  • Do not follow the instructions on the box of Jello and do not use the traditional 2 cups of water that you typically use when making jello for the jello cubes! We want the jello squares to be less diluted.
  • Be sure to let the condensed milk mixture cool COMPLETELY or it will melt the colored Jello cubes if you pour in the mixture when it is warm.
  • Got a bundt pan? You can make it in there for a really pretty Broken Glass Jello mold.Jello with colored jello cubes in a glass dish

Variations

Have fun with the flavors and colors! 

  • Christmas Dinner: Use red and green Jello for the jello cubes.
  • Halloween Party: Use green, purple, and orange Jello for the cubes.
  • Valentine’s Day: Use pink and red Jello for the cubes.
