Classic Holiday Ribbon Squares (Jello)

Classic Holiday Ribbon Squares (Jello) created by Roxygirl in Colorado

This red, white, and green jello is a classic addition to the holiday table (you can switch colors for other occasions). Recipe from "Celebrating 100 years of Jello." I speed-up the chilling time table by setting each bowl/pan over a larger bowl/pan of ice water (lots of ice). I do this with all my Jello and each stage is done in about 15-20 minutes. You need to check for required texture and not go by clock. I love making these layered desserts!

ingredients

directions

  • Stir 1 cup boiling water into each flavor of gelatin in separate medium bowls at least 2 minutes, until dissolved.
  • Stir 3/4 cup of the cold water into the red gelatin.
  • Pour into 9-inch square pan.
  • Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until set but not firm to the touch (gelatin should still stick to the finger when touched).
  • Meanwhile, stir lemon gelatin gradually into cream cheese in large bowl with whisk until smooth.
  • (I use the blender for this step, because I don't like lumpy Jello).
  • Stir in pineapple with the juice.
  • Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
  • Stir in whipped topping and mayonnaise.
  • Spoon over red gelatin layer in pan.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set, but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger and should mound).
  • Meanwhile, stir remaining 3/4 cold water into lime gelatin.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
  • Spoon over lemon gelatin mixture in pan.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
  • Unmold and cut into squares.
  • Garnish with small dollop of Cool Whip.
