whipped cream – I used a store bought can of refrigerated whipped topping
red licorice sticks
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 a 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 blue jello using the 2 packages of blue jello, 2 cups of hot water, and 2 cups of cold water
Pour into a prepared pan
Allow the 2 jello pans to set up for about 3 hours
To Prepare the Cups
cut the end of the licorice stick into strips of 3 – going about 2 inches down – I tried cutting it into 5 strips…way too frustrating! Keep it simple with 3
trim the licorice strips to fit the cups so the cut portion will stick out over the whipped cream topping. The length will vary depending on how tall your cups are
Next Step: (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 blue jello cubes onto the red
When you or your guests are ready, add whipped topping, and a licorice stick to the top and enjoy the yumminess! 🙂
The picture shows the whipped cream melting a bit and running down through the cracks of the cubes. It’s delicious that way and so beautiful!
