rainbow jello for chinese new year

Almost every year, I make rainbow jello for Chinese New Year. It's so pretty, and festive, and both kids and adults love it! It's a super versatile jello to make and you can make it with any colors you like - I've made it for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Christmas to name a few occasions. I've even made it in egg-shaped jello molds for Easter, or Hello Kitty shaped molds for my book!

For the colored layers, you just need to chose four different colors/flavors of Jello for the different colored layers. And the white layers are made of clear gelatin mixed with sweetened condensed milk for a creamy milky layer in between the fruity layers.

While the recipe itself is super easy, it does take a bit of time to make, because each layer takes at least 30 minutes in the fridge to set before adding the next layer. But it's a fun dessert to make, say on a rainy day, or on a weekend at home, or with your kids!

Plus its a light and not-too-sweet dessert for any meal. Enjoy! And Happy Chinese New Year!
