No matter what your plans are for the 4th, there's little doubt there will be plenty of tasty food involved. If you'd like to celebrate the 4th in style with a dish tailor-made for the 4th of July, here's a quick and easy gelatin dish you can make that's guaranteed to impress.
The Patriotic Parfait Ingredients
1 6-ounce package of cherry gelatin
1 6-ounce package of blueberry gelatin
3 cups boiling water
3 cups cold water
1 cup ice cubes
4 cups Cool Whip whipped topping
The Patriotic Parfait Directions
- Add 1 1/2 cup boiling water to a large mixing bowl and stir the package of cherry gelatin into it until it's completely dissolved. Add 1/2 cup of ice cubes to 1 1/2 cups cold water and add it to the bowl of gelatin. Stir it in until the ice has melted. Pour the cherry gelatin into glass 8" X 8" dish. Place the dish in the fridge.
- Repeat step one to prepare the blueberry gelatin in a separate glass dish.
- Wait for the gelatin to set. Once it's set, slice it into cubes.
- Layer the gelatin in the serving dishes. Start with red, add a layer of Cool Whip. Add the blue and then top with a dollop of Cool Whip. I also like to add strawberries and/or blueberries to the top of that, but they're optional.
- Serve immediately.
