Jello Mosaic Dessert Bars

Today I made jello.  Not just any jello, but something called Mosaic Dessert Bars. My brother has lung cancer and isn't doing so well.  Right now, he doesn't have much of an appetite so I decided I would take him some jello. I've made this recipe before around Christmas using strawberry, lime, orange and lemon flavors. This time, I wanted to use flavors that might represent spring or Easter.
I gathered:

       6 1/2 cups       boiling water,  (1c for each flavor)
          1 pkg.          (3oz) JELL-O Peach Flavor Gelatin               
          1 pkg.          (3oz) JELL-O Grape Flavor Gelatin
          1 pkg.          (3oz) JELL-O Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin
          1 pkg.          (3oz) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin
          1 pkg.          (3oz) JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin
          2 env.           KNOX Unflavored Gelatin
          1/2 cup         cold water
          1 can            (14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk

Add 1 cup boiling water to each flavor fruit gelatin mix in separate bowls or do each one at a time. Stir at least 2 min. until completely dissolved.  Pour each flavor of gelatin into separate small shallow food storage containers sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

Sprinkle unflavored gelatine over cold water; let stand 1 min.  Stir in 1-1/2 cups boiling water. Add condensed milk; mix well.  Cool slightly.

 Cut flavored gelatin into cubes.  Randomly place cubes in 13x9 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Pour milk mixture over cubes.  If necessary, stir very gently to distribute gelatin cubes.  Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.     

 The gelatin can then be sliced into bars . . . .

This really turned out pretty.  I'm packing it up and taking it to my brother.  Hopefully, he'll be able to have some. Just taking it one day at a time . . .
