  • 1 1/2 c. boiling water

The White Layer

  • 1 c. vodka
  • 2 envelopes gelatin
  • 1 c. boiling water
  • 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • Crushed candy canes for garnish


  1. Spray a small loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl or measuring cup, combine cherry Jell-O with boiling water and whisk to combine. Let sit 2 minutes, then whisk in 1/2 cup vodka. Set aside.
  2. In another large bowl or measuring cup, combine 1 cup vodka and gelatin and let sit 2 minutes. Add water and stir until gelatin dissolves completely. Pour in sweetened condensed milk and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour half of the red mixture, about 1 cup into loaf pan. Freeze 20 minutes until firm and add 1 cup of the white mixture. Repeat twice more, letting firm 20 minutes between each addition until you have four layers, then refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Remove from loaf pan and cut into squares. Top with crushed candy canes and serve.
