Help! Jello not setting

Making strawberry pretzel salad/ bars for first time. It asks for 2 c boiling water with a small box jello, then 1 1/2 c cold water. Supposedly should have set to egg white consistency in an hour, but its completely liquid! Does it just need more time??

Are you sure you used a 6 ounce package (or 2 3oz) packs of jello?

Dona makes a good point. One 6-ounce package of Jello is the large size, not the small size. You say you used a small box. That could be the problem.

That's a lot of liquid for a small box of Jello. The recipe calls for a large box.
