Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker
Yield: 22 stars
- 2 boxes (3 oz each) red jello
- 2 boxes (3 oz each) blue jello
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatine
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Pour the gelatin mix over the squares. Try to break up any bubbles that form, but don't be fanatical about it. Also, some of the color may bleed through from the red and blue blocks, but don't worry about it. Place the pan back in the fridge for a minimum of three hours.
Once the jello was firm, I covered the pan in saran wrap and left the land of the purple counter tops behind and took my jello on the road.
The next morning I embarked on the final step, cutting the jello into stars. If you're in a less ambitious mood, feel free to call it a day at this point and just cut the jello into blocks.
Press the cutter into the jello, twisting as needed to loosen it from the bottom.
Carefully lift the star out of the pan.
Cut out as many stars as you can. I got 22, someone with better geometry skills could probably get more.
