"Just had it at a graduation party and everyone loved it. It was done with Lime, Strawberry and Lemon. It was cut into cube size pieces and got a ton of raves. Delicious!!!!"
"Yup! All my little friends loved it more than words can ever express!"
"Start early, but although it takes quite a while to make, it's well worth it. This is just beautifull!"
"Very yummy and just makes you smile! I wedged tinfoil under the pan to keep things level."
"I made Rainbow Cups for my daughters Birthday party. They were soooo cool that I took a pix and posted it.
I used 1-small box of 5 flavors(purple,blue,green,yellow,orange) and 2 small boxes of red. I put 1 ounce (2 oz of red) of each color in 9oz plastic cups and chilled about 15 minutes before adding the next. It made about 10 cups, and 1 funky cup that had the little leftovers in it. Mammabear, thanks for posting this recipe.
What a hit! Even the adults thought they were special."
"I made this recipe for our Easter dinner. I put them in individual dishes for each of us. We loved this. It looked so special. I made this the day before and it did take all day but so worth it. I let each layer set for one hour and started the "milk" layer 15 minutes before I wanted to pour it on and the timing worked perfectly. I was able to make 8 individual dishes with this. Thank you for sharing this was me, big hit."
"So much fun to make! All of my roommates loved this recipe. Apparently my fridge is on a hill because the layers are slanted! Thanx, I will be making this often. I would allow at 30 least mins to set between layers."
"I'm not giving this any stars because it was a disaster! Not because of the recipe, but because of my own inpatience. I was trying to do four layers--raspberry, raspberry with the milk, lime and lime with the milk--for Christmas Eve. I made one layer and evidently did not wait long enough and poured the second layer on top and made a mess. I think this would be great--but don't rush it!"
"It's even prettier in real life than the photos! I made this as a side for a birthday party and the kids LOVE it. They even eat it with their fingers with minimal mess. I put mine in a clear glass 9x13 cake pan and got 7 layers. Be patient and let the layers cool enough (30+ minutes in the fridge -- don't risk the freezer). This is easy to make if you're in the kitchen preparing other things anyway. Clear out a low shelf in the fridge before you begin. I boil my water in the microwave and use evaporated skim milk. I have tried a similar recipe using plain yogurt -- I prefer this recipe."
"I loved the colours and layers and the fact that my jello looked very similar to the picture by Leezah4. My kids loved it and it was a refreshing dessert for hot summer weather. I also made this in parfait glasses for a dinner party and it was a huge success."
"This is just such a wonderful recipe and a great way to use up extra jello I had sitting in my kitchen! I loved this recipe. I used Cherry, Strawberry, Grape & Blueberry to make an 8 layer jello dessert. I will definately make this again and again with all kinds of flavors! I also love the flavor the evaporated milk gave each lighter color layer. This recipe is very simple to make, but just takes a little time... but very well worth it!! Thank you for a fantastic and fun idea to make jello!!"
"That was really really good...took about 1/2 hour between layers,everyone luved it,it was pretty and it came out of the dish pretty easily,thank you!"
"my kids loved it- thanks for posting!"
"Always a hit at our family reunion!!"
"I have not made this recipe - YET... I just have to point out how versatile this recipe is. All one has to do is mix up the colors to go with the appropriate party - Mexican theme? Green White and Red. Proud America theme? 6 (Red+ White) then 2 (blue + white--This could look like knitting instructions!). St. Paddy's day? Light and Dark Green. Gay Pride? All the colors of the rainbow. Rastafarian Shindig? Red Yellow and Green. I can't wait to make this for my recently outed niece. She will love it! "
"wow, just like the jello parfaits at the Schwartzwald Inn in Philadelphia. It was always my favorite dessert there. I actually had my engagement party there in the dark ages just for the dessert!!!!"
"Sooo very pretty! The addition of evaporated milk gave this a wonderful creamy(creamsicle)taste. I brought a piece over to my MILs and she was HARD CORE hinting that it sure would be nice if this was made for her ladies luncheon at the church-I told her I'd be more than glad to give her the recipe :). This would be so pretty to prepare this in appropriate baby shower colors. Quite time consuming to make, took around 4 hours total, allowing 30 min. for each layer for it to firm up a little before adding the next layer. I prepared this in a pyrex 13x9 pan with no problems. "
"AWESOME!!! if your kids are mad at you...whip up some of this and i can almost garuntee that they will love you when their done! (mine did he-he)"
