This Fourth of July, bring a dessert that is simple, beautiful and full of American pride – red, white and blue Jello! This cold, creamy dessert will be the hit of the barbecue.
To get started, you’ll need the following;
- A 13×9 baking dish
- Cool whip (8 ounces)
- Cream Cheese (8 ounces)
- 1 package (3.5 ounce) lemon flavored Jello mix
- 2 packages (3.5 ounces each) of berry blue flavored Jello mix (can use any blue flavored Jello)
- 2 packages (3.5 ounces each) of raspberry Jello mix (can use any red flavored Jello)
First prepare the blue jello by following the directions on the package, and refrigerate in the 13×9 dish for at least one hour.
To make the filling, add the package of lemon flavored jello mix to 1 cup of boiling water and mix well. Whip the cream cheese, and then add the lemon jello mixture and mix until smooth. Once this mixture has cooled to room temperature fold in the cool whip. When the white filling is thoroughly mixed, pour it over the blue layer of jello. (Make sure the bottom layer is fully finished or your going to wind up with a light blue mess!).
It’s time to place the blue and white part of dessert in the refrigerator to chill, and start working on red. Follow the directions on the box to make the red layer, however instead of refrigerating allow it to cool until it’s room temperature. Once the red jello mixture is no longer warm, then pour it into the pan over the white layer.
Leave this amazingly yummy dessert in the refrigerator until it’s completely chilled and ready to serve.
