I would call this "easy" rather than "average" difficulty. It would be helpful to know what size Jello (I used 3 oz) and what size can of evaporated milk (I used the larger size). It looks really pretty in saucer champagne glasses but we haven't served it yet. This yielded the equivalent of six wine glasses. I hope it's good because it's light and simple. Thanks.

Lack of amounts made this risky. With large can of evaporated milk and 3-oz Jello mix, too bland to bother eating.
