  • 4 boxes Jello (3 oz size boxes) *any flavor desired
  • 1 cup hot water(per box)
  • 1/2 cup cold water (per box)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Butter or oil a 9 x 13 pan lightly.
  • To make filling, bring the two cups of milk to a boil. Dissolve the 1 cup sugar into the milk.
  • In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup cold water with 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin.
  • Add gelatin mixture to the milk while still warm. Pour sour cream into a bowl and add in the gelatin/milk mixture.
  • Add in 2 tsp vanilla extract.
  • Keep mixture covered on the counter.
  • Make first package of jello. Pour into the cake pan. Place pan into the fridge.
  • Allow to set up, but make sure it is still a bit tacky to touch as this helps the next layer stick to it.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups filling for the next layer. Put back into fridge until set.
  • Repeat by making next package of jello, then 1 1/2 cups filling, and so on.
  • Keep in fridge until ready to eat! Enjoy!!
