Today is a commonly known federal holiday known as Independence Day. I hope everyone is enjoying their day full of family, food, fun and fireworks. I bought a JELL-O & COOL WHIP Summer Desserts books from the grocery store about two months ago. I was thumbing through it and saw a treat that was perfect for this holiday. Below you will find the recipe.
What you need:
1 pkg. (3oz) JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin
1 cup sugar, divided
2 cups boiling water, divided
2 cups cold water, divided
1 pkg. (3oz) JELL-O Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin
1 tub (8oz) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
Combine dry cherry gelatin mix and 1/2 cup of the sugar in medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the boiling water, stir at least 2 min. until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to 1 cup of the cold water to measure 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted. Pour evenly into 16 (5oz) paper or plastic cups. Freeze 1 hour.
Meanwhile, combine dry blue gelatin mix and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in medium bowl. Add remaining 1 cup boiling water;stir at least 2 min. until gelatin is completely dissolved.Add enough ice cubes to 1 cup of the cold water to measure 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Spoon about 3 Tbsp. COOL WHIP over red gelatin in each cup; top evenly with blue gelatin, adding about 1/4 cup of the gelatin to each cup. Freeze 1 hour or until almost firm. Insert wooden popsicle stuff in each cup for a handle if you choose.
I also bought a bottle of bubbles for my daughter to enjoy for her first July 4th. It was too windy to blow bubbles outside so I blew them in the house. My mother and I will be having a bubble off. Somehow she is blowing bubbles that are bouncing on the carpet and rolling. Above is my practice bubble. It’s going down.
