Rainbow Jello Treats

Last week, for Miss A's FIFTH birthday, we made these very cool looking layered Jello treats for school (I found them here):

Yes, they do look VERY cool, don't they?  They also took 4.5 hours.  Each layer has to set, and, as a word of caution, don't just dump the next layer on.  Oh no, you have to veeeeery gently pour the next layer over top.  And those cool whip layers?  Take a little bitty spoon and veeeeery carefully spread it on each and every one of your treats.

I originally tried to pipe some of the cool whip on top to make a neat swirl like the picture in the blog where found the instructions, but decided it looked a bit too much like poop to give to a bunch of preschoolers.  So I spread the cool whip out a bit and liked that much better.

They were a big hit, but I'm not sure they were worth the effort!  16 of these babies later, and I'm not ready to think about Jello again any time soon!

  1. They do look beautiful! Before I even read it I thought you must have lots of patience. :)
