4th of July Jello Parfait
What's your Take?

The kids and I make Jello trifles or mini-parfaits for parties and holidays; we love playing around with the colored layers, adding fruit as it's in season. It's the perfect time to get your red, white, and blue on.

What you'll need

  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (8-serving size) Jello Berry Blue-flavored Gelatin
  • 1 package (8-serving size) Jello Strawberry-flavored Gelatin
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 12 ounces light Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced

How to make it

  1. Pour the Jello Berry Blue-flavored Gelatin into a medium bowl. Add 2 cups of the boiling water to the gelatin; stir for two minutes until gelatin powder is completely dissolved.

  2. Stir in 1 cup of cold water. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until thickened.

  3. Pour the Jello Strawberry-flavored Gelatin into a medium bowl. Add 2 cups of the boiling water to the gelatin; stir for two minutes until gelatin powder is completely dissolved.

  4. Stir in 1 cup of cold water. Refrigerate for 1/2 hours or until thickened. Once the Berry Blue Gelatin has properly tickened, add blueberries to it and stir

  5. Pour the Blue Gelatin with the blueberries into a 4-6 quart clear, glass bowl. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger when touched and should mound)

  6. Spread the top of the Blue Gelatin with 3 1/2 cups of the whipped topping and refrigerate. Stir strawberries into Red Gelatin bowl and then spoon it over whipped topping layer of the blue gelatin so it forms 3 colored layers: blue on the bottom, white in the center and red on the top.

  7. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. Top with the remaining whipped topping. Store in refrigerator when not eating.
