Valentine's Jello Hearts Recipe | Valentine's Day Special Recipe

Kids and Jelly always go together. I wanted to try a jelly recipe for a long time. And Valentine's Day made me try this eye appealing Jelly. Both Jany and Happy are very much excited after seeing these cuties. I used store brought strawberry jelly. But you can try it with any fruit juice and gelatin as well. Here, we go for the recipe:

For the Red Hearts:  
Strawberry Jelly - 1 packet(I used weikfield brand)
Water - 500 ml
For the Outer White Layer:
Water - 2 Cups 
Gelatin - 3 tbsp 
Condensed Milk - 1.5 Cups
To Prepare the red heart Jelly:
1. I prepared the jelly according to the pack instructions. I emptied the contents of the packet in a bowl. Then boiled 500 ml of water.
2. Add the boiling water in the jelly powder and stir well until it dissolves. Then pour it into a cake pan by sprinkling little oil at the bottom.(I have used non stick pan). Allow it to set for 1 hour in refrigerator or until it is firm
3. Remove the red jelly from the fridge and invert it on a plate. Cut it into heat shapes using a cookie cutter. Then arrange it in a pan by coating the bottom with little oil(You can use parchment paper instead).
To Prepare the outer white layer:
4. In a bowl, take the given quantity of gelatin. The add 1 cup of water and allow it to soak for 5 mins. Meanwhile mix another 1 cup of water with the given quantity of milkmaid and boil it in medium flame. Stir in between to prevent the bottom from burning.
5. After it boils, switch off the flame. Now add the soaked gelatin into the milkmaid mixture and it dissolves in heat. Allow it to cool for 5 mins and pour it in the pan which has the hearts arranged.
6. Place it in the fridge and allow it to set for 2 hours. Demould it after 2 hours. Cut into squares and serve.
The yummy jello hearts are ready to serve. Kids and Jelly go hand in hand, hence it will be real trat for them.

Points to remember:
  • If using any other brand of jelly, prepare it by the pack instruction.
  • Instead of gelatin, you can use china grass or agar agar as well.
  • I poured the milkmade mixture after placing the pan in the fridge. Otherwise the hearts tend to dislocate.
Warm Regards,
