My mom used to make this for summer parties when I was young. However, when she made it, she used the non-flavored gelatin for the inbetween layers. I found this and remade it and it was pretty amazing. At first, we used the flavors of jello shown, but then we experimented with it on our own. This is a perfect adaptation of an old classic. Thanks so much to the original poster.
This is a great treat. Making it does require some patience but the taste is well worth it. I think next time I will try blue raspberry instead of raspberry for an added color. Thanks so much!!
this recipe has been in my family for years, however when my gramma died the recipe went with her THANK YOU so much for posting this, I thought that i would never find it again. My gramma used to put it in 2 med sized clear bowls so you could see the pretty colors THANK YOU AGAIN for posting this awesome recipe.
I have made something very similar with coconut milk insead of evaporated milk... I used a jelly ring and turned it out and it looked FANTASTIC and was definitly worth the time just for the effect and it is sooo cheap as a dessert option. I found the best way to check when o pour on the next layer was when it just sticks to your finger a bit.
This takes alot longer to set than the recipe calls for - it is also a huge hassle to get nice looking pieces out of the pan. Overall - it was easy and looks okay but doesn't seem worth the time.
