Kiwi Christmas jello squares

This is an old favorite Christmas recipe from New Zealand. It is such fun to make, is really pretty and Christmassy served on a platter and everyone loves it, especially the children.
There is no need for measurements as it’s just a matter of making up three things. Red jello, green jello and a white creamy jello made from sweetened condensed milk and dissolved gelatine. You can change it up and add more layers or colors if you like. Go for it!!

All you do is separately make up a batch of green jello and red jello, and dissolve some gelatine in hot water and add sweetened condensed milk to the gelatine mixture.
You now have three pitchers of different color liquids. Pour half the red jello in the bottom of a square glass dish, then put in the fridge to set.
When it’s pretty set, pour over half of the white liquid (condensed milk) and put back in the fridge to set, then half the green jello etc etc.
Refrigerate the whole thing until set.
Cut into small square pieces and top with either whipped cream, mint leaves, red candles and cherries.
