Let's Make It
Add 1 cup boiling water to each flavor of fruit gelatin mix in separate bowls; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour each flavor of gelatin into separate 8x4-inch loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
Meanwhile, stir unflavored gelatine into 1-1/2 cups milk; let stand 5 min. or until gelatine is softened. Bring 2 cups of the remaining milk just to boil in large saucepan on medium heat. Add sugar and unflavored gelatin mixture; cook and stir 3 to 5 min. or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool 5 min. Add sour cream, vanilla and remaining milk; whisk until blended. Refrigerate 30 min. or until cooled but not firm.
Cut flavored gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes; place in 12-cup mold sprayed with cooking spray. Pour milk mixture over gelatin cubes. Refrigerate 2 hours or until gelatin is firm. Unmold before serving.
Use 1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Orange Tangerine Flavor Gelatin.
JELL-O Gelatin Preparation Tip
If you've added the boiling water to the dry JELL-O Gelatin and cannot get the gelatin to completely dissolve, place the gelatin in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH 30 sec. This should bring up the temperature of the water to a point where it is hot enough to completely dissolve the gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved.
Prepare using your favorite flavors of JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin.
Substitute 4 (8- or 9-inch) square pans for the loaf pans.
