4th of July Jello!

Today is July 1st!! I LOVE the 4th of July and so I have a few Red, White and Blue goodies to share with you the next few days :)

Today is red, white and blue jello- because come on- its just awesome! 

I also have a really cool flag mold I bought from Kraft but I am sure you could do this in a 9 X 13 the layers just might be a little thinner :)

Flag Jello

4 cups boiling water
2 pkgs. (3 oz each) a blue jello
2 pkgs. (3 oz each) a red jello
3 cups cold water
 1 pkg. (3 oz) lemon jello
1 tub (8oz) whipped topping

In a medium bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups boiling water with the blue jello. Mix until dissolved. 
Repeat in separate bowl with red jello.

Then stir 1 1/2 cups cold water into each bowl and mix. 

Spray flag mold (or pan) with non stick spray and pour red jello into it. Refrigerate 45 minutes until set but NOT FIRM. 

Refrigerate blue jello in bowl. 

After 20 minutes, dissolve lemon jello in 1 cup boiling water in bowl. Refrigerate 25 minutes until slightly thickened. 

Whisk whipped topping into lemon jello

Spread over red layer in mold (or pan). Refrigerate 10 minutes until set but not firm. Pour blue jello on top.

(sorry no pics- missed it!)

Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.

To unmold- dip mold in warm water for about 15 seconds. Then gently pull mold away from jello. Place plate on top of mold and invert in one smooth motion. Gently shake to release jello from mold. 

(I used a tin foil covered cookie sheet)

Decorate and serve!

I just love the layers!

and the white middle is not too sweet and oh so yummy!! 

Hope you enjoy!!
