Broken Glass Jello (or jelly) is a beautiful and impressive looking dessert. It is beautiful and mesmerizing to look at and is not complicated at all!
This gorgeous jello seems very complicated, but I assure you this Broken Glass Jello is super simple to put together, it isn’t difficult at all to make, in just a few steps you’ll have a delightful flavourful jello in no time. Plan in advance of your event as you will need to account for the time needed for the Jello to set up, but really, that is the hardest part!
It reminds a mosaic. It’s pretty, delicious, fun, eye-catching and perfect for parties, or even work potlucks …especially summer ones!
It’s something that – I promise you – kids love and even the grown-ups do, too. You’ll surely have your guests ask how you made such a beautiful dessert. Just send them to my blog! 😉
For the Jello Cubes
- 4-6 boxes Jelly powder - (different colours/ flavours to tastei.e. Green, yellow, red, purple, orange, blue… - I used: orange, blueberry, lime, strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavours)
- Water - boiling
- Water - Cold
For the mousse
- 1 can Sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup Whipping cream - or heavy cream or thick cream
- 1 box Jelly powder - I used strawberry flavour
Prepare all the jello boxes separately
- Dissolve each flavour of jello separately into 150-200 ml (5-6.7 oz) of hot water each, once it’s completely dissolved, add 150-200 ml (5-6.7 oz) of cold water.
150 ml (5 oz) hot + 150 ml (5 oz) cold water if you prefer it harder, 200 ml (6.7 oz) hot + 200 ml (6.7 oz) cold water if you prefer if softer but is must be less water than box instruction, which is 250 ml (8.45 oz) hot + 250 ml (8.45 oz) cold water.
- Make sure the Jello powder is completely dissolved in water before refrigerating or else it’ll taste grainy even after the Jello has set.
- Pour each flavour into separate rectangular or square containers, and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Prepare the mousse
- Dissolve strawberry flavour (or your favourite one) jello into 200 ml (6.7 oz) of hot water, then add 200 ml of cold water. Less water than box instruction (which is 250 ml (8.45 oz) hot + 250 ml (8.45 oz) cold water)
- In a blender mix whipping/heavy/thick cream, add sweetened condensed milk, and the prepared strawberry (or your favourite one) flavour jello (it isn’t set at this point, so is liquidly).
- Once the jellos are set, cut them into cubes. No worries if you aren’t able to cut the jello into perfect cubes, the random shapes make the dessert look even cuter.
- Pour half of the prepared mousse (it isn’t set at this point, so is liquidly) into a large glass serving dish (or divide them into two separate containers), and then plop in the colourful jello cubes randomly. Pour the other half of the prepared mousse over it. Gently mix everything with a silicone spatula and refrigerate until firm consistency.
- It is jiggly and really needs to be served in a bowl.
