Rainbow Jello

Rainbow Jello
6 small packages (3 ounces) of different jello colors
Red: cherry/raspberry
Orange: orange
Yellow: lemon/pineapple
Green: lime
Blue: blue raspberry
Violet: grape
(I know we are missing indigo- any ideas for a flavor?!)
4 packages unflavored gelatin
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Jello Layer: Boil 1 cup of water.  Add 1 tsp gelatin and the first package of jello to the water.  Pour in the 9x13 pan and set up in the fridge.  Repeat for the next layer of jello, but leave this jello out on the counter cooling.

Milk Layer: Dissolve 1 envelope gelatin in 1/2 cup water.  Add 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and mix until smooth.  Add an additional 1/2 cup hot water.  Let cool.  Once the first layer of jello is completely set gently pour 3/4 cup over the first layer of jello.  Place in the fridge and cool until set. 

Repeat these steps until all the layers of jello are complete.  Halfway through the process the first batch of milk layer will become too solid to pour smoothly on the jello.  Use the remaining half of the sweetened condensed milk to make a new batch of milk layer. 

Becky's Note:  I first saw this jello at a Thanksgiving dinner.  I thought it was crazy because I couldn't figure out why you would spend so much time making jello!!  However, I kept thinking about the recipe and wondering if it was difficult or just time consuming.  I made it in the middle of preparing a big meal and just did the layers in between everything else.  After it was done I figured that it probably took around 6 hours to complete the jello (obviously not working the full time on the jello).  It was a little tricky to pour the new layers without creating a break in the jello.  I learned to drizzle the jello or milk on a spoon and let it gently pour down into the pan instead of pouring it straight.  The surprising thing about this jello is that it is really good!  There is something about the milk and jello flavors mixing that is a good combination.
