  • Author: Liliane Pucci
  • Prep Time: 24 hours
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 24 hours 15 minutes
  • Category: Desserts
  • Method: Stovetop


  • 23-oz packages berry blue-flavored gelatin
  • 23-oz packages strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 4 cups boiling water – divided
  • 2 ½ cups cold water – divided
  • 2 packages Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Dissolve each package of gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water in separate bowls.
  2. Add ½ cup cold water to each bowl and stir well.
  3. Pour one bowl of blue gelatin into a lightly oiled 10-inch fluted tube pan.
  4. Chill until almost set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Set the other 3 bowls of gelatin aside at room temperature until needed.
  6. Soften unflavored gelatin in remaining cold water and let it stand for 5 minutes.
  7. Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat until it’s just below the boiling point.
  8. Mix the softened gelatin and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
  9. Remove the mixture from the heat.
  10. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla extract.
  11. When the blue gelatin is almost set, spoon 1 ½ cups of the sour cream mixture over it.
  12. Chill until almost the sour cream is set. This takes approximately 30 minutes.
  13. Spoon one bowl of strawberry gelatin over the top of the sour cream layer.
  14. Chill the jello until the new layer is almost set.
  15. Continue adding layers of cream mixture, blue gelatin, and strawberry gelatin until you run out making sure to chill each layer until it is almost set.
  16. Once the last layer is on, chill the jello overnight for best results.


NOTE: This jello mold takes time to prepare since each layer must be almost set before the next layer is added.  The layers will not stick together if the layers completely set between layering.
