Layered "Red, White, & Blue" Jello Cups

Can you believe in just a few short days it will already be JULY?!?! 

Where has the year gone?! 

Well, whether we are ready or not we have found ourselves in the midst of summer with 4th of July celebrations coming in hot! (no pun intended)

We all know what that means...time for some super cute and fun red, white, and blue treats! We had one big goal with this recipe. We needed something simple to make, and easy to take to our family picnic in the park! Without sacrificing the cuteness factor of course! What we came up with is these naturally colored and sweetened layered jello cups! you can make them in advance, use plastic cups (either disposable or reusable - up to you), and bring your toppings on the side to complete at the park! So easy and totally photo-ready! 

To really top it off (again with the puns) get yourself some sparkling candles! Your picnic contribution will steal the show for sure! 

Without further ado...we hope you enjoy our recipe!

Pour the mixture into your cups filling it up to about ⅓ full. Place them in the fridge for about 1.5 hours or until firm.

In a small bowl mix together 1 tbsp of gelatin with ¼ cup cold water. Once the mixture is thick, add ¼ cup of hot water. Stir until dissolved. 
Combine the sweetened condensed milk and gelatin mixtures together. Let it cool to room temperature before pouring onto the blue layer to avoid your colors blending together. Place back into the fridge for about 1.5 hours or until firm.
