Here is a fantastic treat for your upcoming July 4th festivities! Are you looking for something quick and simple to whip up? You should give these a try! I mean, who doesn’t love Jell-o?

This is usually the part where I post the ingredients, but for the most part, this one should be self-explanatory. Just grab some Red and Blue Jell-o, some unflavored gelatin and some sweetened condensed milk and you are good to go! If you are anything like me, you probably have most, if not all of this in your home already! If not, a short (and I mean SHORT) trip to the supermarket is all you need!

The rest is easy. Make the Jell-o, let it cool. Cut it into small cubes, throw those cubes into a baking dish of your choice. Mix the unflavored gelatin with sweetened condensed milk, then add that to the cubes. Chill, then cut. You can either make bars, or grab some cookie cutter shapes, stars are PERFECT for the 4th of July! There you go, red, white and blue treats! Be creative!

I got this idea while watching this video on for Stained Glass Bars. So to get a better idea for what I’m talking about above, click here to see the video for yourself. Enjoy! And have a happy 4th!
