Easy to make patriotic dessert "starring" red and blue jello with a white cream layer.
Ingredients
  • 2 (3½ oz) packages strawberry (or other red) jello
  • 1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 8 oz. whipped topping
  • 2 (3½ oz) packages berry blue jello
  • chopped nuts (optional)
Instructions
  1. Prepare strawberry jello according to directions on box and add pineapple (with juice). Pour into individual serving dishes (or plastic cups) or into a 9x13 glass dish and chill until firm.
  2. Prepare unflavored gelatin according to directions on box. Beat cream cheese slightly and then add the gelatin mixture.
  3. Beat gelatin and cream cheese until smooth. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Once this mixture has cooled, fold in the whipped topping until mixed together well.
  5. Pour this mixture over the firm bottom layer and return to refrigerator and chill until firm, approximately 1 hour.
  6. Prepare berry blue jello according to directions in box. (If desired you can add chopped nuts to this layer.) Pour over the two layers and chill until firm.
  7. Can be served with a dash of whipped topping if desired.
Notes
I did not use chopped nuts for this recipe but in the future I probably will. I think the pineapple in the first layer and the nuts in the top layer give the jello a little variety.
