Ingredients

  • 1 box (6 oz) berry blue Jello mix plus water called for on package
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 box (6 oz) strawberry or red raspberry Jello mix plus water called for on package
  • 1 jar (10 oz) maraschino cherries with stems
  • whipped cream optional

Instructions

  • Follow the box instructions for making the blue Jello (2 cups boiling water, dissolve the gelatin, then add 2 cups cold water.) Fill shot glasses (2 oz plastic cups) 1/3 of the way. Refrigerate for 60-90 minutes.
  • Combine 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin and 1 1/2 cups of hot water. Stir to dissolve completely. Mix in sweetened condensed milk. Spoon into glasses until 2/3 full. Return to refrigerator for another 60-90 minutes. 
  • Follow the box instructions for making the red Jello. Place a cherry on top of the white layer, then fill glasses the rest of the way with the red Jello. Return to refrigerator. Check in 10 minutes and adjust the cherry stems so they are standing upright. Leave in the refrigerator for another 60-90 minutes or until set completely. 
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Top with whipped cream if you prefer!
