RECIPE: Peaches & Cream Jello Mold
Monica's grandma would always end every family meal with a delightful jello dessert. This Peaches & Cream Jello Mold was one of her favorites. This can be a little boozy if you'd like, by adding a small amount of peach schnapps or whipped cream flavored vodka...or completely non-alcoholic. Either way, it's just delicious!
2 (3-ounce) packages of peach flavored gelatin
3 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/4 cups cold water
3/4 cup peach schnapps or whipped cream flavored vodka (or substitute cold water for non-alcoholic version)
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (15-ounce) can sliced peaches
2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
- In a medium bowl, stir 2 cups boiling water into both packages of peach gelatin for 2 minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved.
- Stir in 3/4 cups cold water and 3/4 cup peach schnapps (or water, if non-alcoholic).
- Refrigerate until gelatin thickens to the consistency of raw eggs.
- Drain canned peaches well (reserve the syrup from the can) and arrange them in a formation in the bottom of the mold.
- Spoon the thickened peach gelatin into the mold over the arranged peach slices. Refrigerate until the gelatin is set but not firm (gelatin should stick to your fingers when touched).
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, sprinkle 2 packages of unflavored gelatin (Knox) over 1/2 cup cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water. Stir in 1 1/2 cups boiling water for 2 minutes until gelatin is fully dissolved.
- Stir in sweetened condensed milk and the reserved peach syrup until the mixture is smooth. Refrigerate mixture until slightly thickened, then gently spoon into the mold over the peach gelatin layer.
- Refrigerate overnight or until firm.
To unmold your dessert:
Fill a sink or basin with warm water. Dip the mold just to the rim in the warm water for about 10 seconds. Lift from water, hold upright, and shake slightly to loosen the gelatin from mold. Place a cold, moistened plate over the top of the mold and invert the plate and mold together. Carefully lift the mold, if gelatin does not release dip the mold in warm water and try again.
