These super fun Jell-O stars are such a great way to celebrate Independence Day. They're so easy to make that kids of any age can help make them, or make them themselves.
They're a great finger food, especially for toddlers. The texture is interesting for them and it's sometimes a fun challenge to actually pick them up. You can use the smaller sized stars to make them easier for little fingers to hold them.
These are also great with any color or flavor Jell-O if you're not celebrating 4th of July. Match colors for birthday party themes or other celebrations.
You can try other flavors of red Jell-O instead of strawberry and no matter what flavor, these Jell-O stars are so tasty!

Patriotic Red, White and Blue Jell-O Stars
- 1 - 6 ounce box berry blue Jell-O
- 1 - 6 ounce box strawberry Jell-O
- 5 1/2 cups boiling water (divided)
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- medium size star cookie cutters
- Prepare blue Jell-O according to package directions and pour into a baking dish. Repeat with red Jell-O and pour into a different baking dish. Cover and chill at least 3 hours or overnight.
- In a large bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water and allow to sit for 5 minutes. After the gelatin blooms (it will look mostly dissolved and get wrinkly on the surface), add 1 1/2 cups boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the can of condensed milk and stir to combine; set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Cut the blue and red Jell-O into squares. Add them to a 9x13 glass baking dish.
- Pour the cooled sweeten condensed milk mixture over the red and blue jello squares in the baking dish. Cover and chill overnight.
- Cut with star cookie cutters. Serve immediately or place on platter, cover and refrigerate until serving.
I like to use the medium cutter as it works best with a spatula to help scoop out the star.
