I made this and took it to work and it was a huge hit. I used sugar-free jello and pudding and fat-free Cool Whip. Instead of having three layers, I made this into six layers. It looked beautiful and everyone loved that it was a healthy dessert. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this often. Made for April, 2009 Photo Tag.
