King Cake Jell-o

Hello, Fat Tuesday!! 

How many people are celebrating Fat Tuesday?? If it's an excuse to eat and drink - then I am IN!
I was thinking about making a King Cake and getting a plastic baby and all of that, but well, to be honest, Mardi Gras snuck up on me this year. 

I mean, we just had Valentine's Day AND my daughter's birthday is later this week AND we have a Family trip to Disney World planned AND a hubby and wifey vacation to Napa Valley planned! 

It's just too much for a girl to handle! 

So I'm going for fast, easy, and "In-The-Spirit-Of" kind of King Cake!

I'm making Jell-o!

Here's what you need: 
3 oz. box of Lime Jell-o + 1 Cup boiling water + 1/2 cup cold water
3 oz. box of Grape Jell-o + 1 Cup boiling water + 1/2 cup cold water
3 oz box of Lemon Jell-o + 1 Cup boiling water + 1/2 cup cold water

1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 packets Knox gelatin
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/2 cup cold water

Here's what you do:
Make each Jell-o and allow 1 hour to solidify. You can see that I just left them in the measuring cups.
Spray a Bundt Pan with some Pam (or other spray).
Cube up the Jell-o and add to your bundt pan.
Combine boiling water with Knox gelatin and stir to combine. Add condensed milk and stir. Add cold water and stir a bit more.
Slowly pour milk mixture over the Jell-o chunks in the bundt pan. Place the pan back in the fridge and allow 1 - 2 hours to solidify. 
Cut and serve! 

 Isn't it beautiful? 

I think that it is!

Ok, ok... It's just another Stained Glass Jell-o, but come on, it's 
"In- The-Spirit-Of" Mardis Gras. That has to count a little bit...

At least my Little Cup Loved it! And that's all that matters!

Have a Great Fat Tuesday, Carnival or Mardi Gras!
