  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages unflavored gelatin (such as Knox ®)

  • 2 cups boiling water

  • 2 teaspoons almond extract

  • 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin orange segments, undrained

Directions

  1. Whisk the sugar into the milk in a mixing bowl until dissolved. Sprinkle the gelatin over top, and let stand for 1 minute to soften.
