Recipe by Pandamommy

Yummy! Had this at a potluck, snagged the recipe and have been sharing it ever since! I keep misplacing my recipe and having to call someone who has gotten it from me, so I'm posting it here for the next time! Use red for Christmas, orange for Thanksgiving, green for St.Patty's day? Cooking time doesn't include refrigeration time.

This tasted very good, and it was really very pretty. I don't know if I did something wrong, but it made a huge amount! It filled to the top my big square Pampered Chef bowl, after overflowing the 9 x 13 pan I started with. No worries, though, we ate it for days and we all enjoyed it!
