Make Blue Jello

Pour the blue jello into a lightly oiled star mold and place it in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until the gelatin is firm enough to add the next layer.

Make White Jello

Pour 1 cup of vodka into a bowl or container. Sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin over the vodka. Let it stand for about two minutes. Add 1 cup of boiling water and stir until the gelatin completely dissolves. Pour the sweetened condensed milk and stir well.

Pour the white jello on top of the blue jello. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until the gelatin is firm enough to add the red layer.

Make Red Jello

Pour 1 cup of vodka into a bowl or container. Sprinkle 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin over the vodka. Let it stand for about one minute. Add strawberry flavored Jell-O and pour 1 cup of boiling water. Stir until the gelatin completely dissolves.

Pour the red jello on top of the white jello. Refrigerate for about half hour or until the gelatin is firm.

Note: You may use cherry or raspberry flavored Jell-O instead of strawberry.

Unmold the Layered Star

Once the star is firm, place a flat plate upside down over the open side of the mold, then flip the mold and plate together. Lift the mold off, leaving the star on the plate.
