    Having never made or tried a Jello dessert, it was fun coming across this one. Turned out the perfect simple ending to a weekend of heavy and complicated food. The 1:1 ratio of Cool Whip and Jello resulted in a softer foam than I expected but thoroughly enjoyed. I made mine with strawberry Jello, blueberries and diced fresh pears. The playful kid in me gives this five stars.
