1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
1 (3 oz) box of orange-flavored gelatin
1 (3 oz) box of pineapple-flavored gelatin
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
Yellow food dye
1. In a medium bowl, sprinkle an envelope of unflavored gelatin evenly over 1/4 cup cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for 2 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
2. Add 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk and stir until mixture is even and creamy.
3. Pour mixture into molds (either individual-sized molds or one big one), filling mold(s) one-third of the way full.
4. Place the molds in the refrigerator until the gelatin begins to set but is not firm (about 10 mins for individual molds.) When you tilt the mold the gelatin should not run but it should stick to your finger or the back of a spoon when touched. If the gelatin is not set enough when you add the next layer, the layers will run together. If it gets too firm, the layers will not adhere to each other and will slide apart when unmolded.
5. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add 1 cup of boiling water to the package of orange gelatin. Stir for two minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk until mixture is even and creamy. Stir in 3/4 cup cold water until mixture is even.
6. Place the bowl of orange gelatin in the refrigerator until it thickens to the consistency of pudding. Gently spoon over the white gelatin in the molds. Refrigerate again until gelatin gets firm as in step 4.
7. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add 1 cup of bowling water to the package of pineapple gelatin. Stir for two minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is even and creamy. Stir in 3/4 cup cold water until mixture is even. If the mixture does not appear to be yellow enough, add a drop or two of yellow food dye to create some vibrancy to the color. Stir until even.
8. Place the bowl of pineapple gelatin in the refrigerator until it thickens to the consistency of pudding. Gently spoon over the orange gelatin in the molds. Refrigerate overnight to allow gelatin to get set.
9. To unmold your gelatin mold, fill a sink, basin, or large bowl with warm water. Dip the mold just to the rim in the warm water for about 10 seconds. Lift from water, hold upright, and shake slightly to loosen the gelatin from mold. Place a cold, moistened plate over the top of the mold and invert the place and mold together. Carefully lift the mold. If gelatin does not release, dip the mold in warm water and try again.
