This is unbelievably simple and just good. Pretty and easy. Mom Florence made them for us all the time when I was growing up. Kids love this.

This is such a comfort dessert!! I remember my mom making something similar when I was a kid and forgotten all about it until I saw your post. I twisted it up a bit by using sugar-free raspberry gelatin and then dark chocolate pudding. It was a perfect match but I can see so many other possibilities. Stacked in a pretty clear glass and topped with a bit of fat-free whipped topping just made for a special dessert for my family without taking a ton of time to put together for me. Thanks for sharing a keeper with me!
