Very simple recipe from a Jell-O brand recipe card. I like it with lime jello. NOTES: cooking time is actually refrigerator time for set-up.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 1 (6 ounce) box cherry Jell-O
  • 1 (16 ounce) container Cool Whip, whipped topping, thawed


  1. stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  2. add whipped topping to hot gelatin; stir with wire whisk until whipped topping is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
  3. (mixture will still be thin).
  4. pour mixture into 6 cup mold or glass bowl sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight until firm.
  6. unmold onto serving plate just before serving.
  7. store leftovers in refrigerator.

Tasty, but really it gets 5 stars for being a two-ingredient, 10 minutes to prepare recipe! :)

A show-off two layered dessert almost everybody would enjoy...5*. The ease of having your 3 year old grandson able to make this without a kitchen disaster...priceless!
