Cathedral Windows


Takes 20 minutes plus chilling

Makes 24 servings (8-inch bundt pan)


1 bag jelly candy, unmolded

2 pouches (25 grams) clear, unflavored gelatin

3 cups water, divided

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup condensed milk

1 cup evaporated milk



Place into a bundt pan the jelly candy, mixing the colors, until layers of the gelatin cubes are formed. Set aside.



In a medium saucepan, dump in contents of the clear gelatin pouch. Add sugar, water, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. Stir to dissolve. Place over medium heat, and cook, stirring, until thickened and about to boil. Remove from heat. 



 Pour mixture into the gelatin in the bundt pan. Stir to mix. Remove any bubbles that may form on the surface. Refrigerate until cold and firm, overnight or at least 4 hours.




Once firm, cut into slices, and serve while cold.
