whipped cream – I used a store bought can of refrigerated whipped topping
maraschino cherries with stems
(2) 9×14 pans
clear plastic cups – I used 9 oz. cups
Prepare the pans by rubbing a thin layer of mayonnaise with a piece of paper towel – It’s an old trick my mom taught me. Nobody will taste the mayonnaise and you won’t get oil on the jello by using cooking spray
Prepare the red jello by stirring 2 cups of hot water with the red granules, until they are dissolved
Add the cold water and mix in
Pour into one of the 9×13 pans
Next, prepare the green jello using the 2 packages of green jello, 2 cups of hot water, and 2 cups of cold water
Pour into a prepared pan
Place both pans of jello into the refrigerator
Allow the two jello pans to set up in the refrigerator for about 3 hours
To Prepare the Cups
(You’re basically cutting the jello into cubes)
When it’s ready, Pull the jello out of the fridge and cut it into strips about an inch wide
turn the pan and cut strips going the other way about an inch wide
Spoon some red jello cubes into the bottom of the plastic cups- going about halfway up
Spoon green jello cubes onto the red
When you or your guests are ready, add whipped topping, and a cherry to the top and enjoy the yumminess! 🙂
The picture in the post shows the whipped cream melting a bit and running down through the cracks of the cubes. Depending on your climate, this can take anywhere from a few minutes up to 15 minutes for the whipped topping to start trickling down. The melting whipped cream mixed with the jello is delicious and so beautiful! Just have a reserve can of whipped topping around to top the jello off with more on top and add a cherry.
