  8. Set aside.
  9. Dissolve 1 package of Jell-O with one cup of hot water and ½ cup of cold water.
  10. Pour first Jello-O into pan and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  11. Remove from refrigerator and spoon first part of milk mixture on top.
  12. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  13. Continue this pattern - refrigerating Jello-O for 1 hour and milk mixture for 30 minutes until all 7 layers are set.
  14. Keep refrigerated. Can be made the day before.
  15. Helpful Hints:
  16. If the milk mixture gets too set before pour since heat it up for 15 seconds in the microwave.
  17. When pouring Jell-O layer over milk mixture, pour it first into a spoon to disperse it without putting a dent in the set milk mixture.
  18. Other colors and flavors can be used.
