Gelatina de Colores o Mosaico (Mosaic Jello)

Gelatina de Colores also known as Mosaico de Gelatina is a staple at Colombian parties, especially during the holidays. Every year for Christmas one of my aunts would make it and I loved it so much! I’ve always loved Jello desserts and as a kid, my mom would often have a bowl of Jello in the fridge for quick snacks or desserts, which she would top with sweet condensed milk. Anyway, back to the recipe…

Gelatina de Colores o Mosaico (Mosaic Jello)

This is a very easy to make and fun dessert for any party. I love the combination of white, red and green for Christmas, but you could use any combination of colors you’d like, depending on the season.

This time I used a bundt pan to make my Gelatina de Colores, but you can use a jello mold, a regular bowl, or a casserole dish. This is a great make-ahead dessert for your Christmas dinner.

Buen provecho!

Directions

  1. Place the red jello into a medium bowl. Place 2 cups of water into a pot and bring to boil.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the top of the jello and stir well until the jello is dissolved. Repeat with the green jello.
  3. Pour the red jello onto a large cookie sheet or a baking pan, and the green jello onto another cookie sheet or baking pan.

  7. Pour 1 can sweetened condensed milk into the mixture. Stir well to combine, then place it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let cool down.
  8. Grease a bundt pan or 9×13 pan with cooking spray.
  9. Cut the jello into small pieces. Place all the jello pieces in the pan.
  10. When your creamy gelatine mixture has cooled down, pour it over the top of the jello pieces.

This looks great! :) I want to ask can I use sugar and milk if condense milk is not available? If so how much of each?

Thank you for sharing this recipe! I have a question about step 5. The “place 1/2 cup of cold water in a small bowl”. Is this combined with the unflavored gelatin mixture before the 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and the sweet condensed milk?

5. When the jello is set, make the milk mixture. Place 1/2 cup of cold water in a small bowl.
6. Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Pour it over the top of the unflavored gelatin mixture and stir well.

Hi Tina,

* Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin into the 1/2 cup of cold water. Add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and mix well. Add the condensed milk.

Hi! I am making this recipe for my daughters class for their holiday party at school, because she is also doing her report on Colombia! I have a question though. Normally, the box of jello calls for 2 cups of boiling water, and 2 cups of cold water. Your recipe only calls for 2 cups of boiling water. Is this correct? I just don’t want it to come out too sweet. Thank you!

For this recipe we have to use less water.
