Seven Layer Jello

READY IN: 7hrs 20mins
Recipe by Bake-a-holic

Make this in a clear dish! It is SO pretty and people will be asking how you cut the Jello into such thin and even layers! Cooking time is total time for all the layers to set. Each layer takes about 30-45 minutes to set so it is best to place the white mixture over a pot of hot water to prevent it from getting hard while you are waiting for the Jello to harden.

I make this red, white, and blue every year for Memorial Day for my sunt's picnic. My kids love it and so do I.
