I like Jello. I’ve used it in molds to make shapes and the kids love it. Many people don’t think of it as a pretty food, but it really can be. This simple parfait requires only three things and a little extra time to turn it into a lovely dessert. Here’s how to make it.
Strawberry Jello Parfait
1 package (3oz) Strawberry Jello.
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries (optional)
1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping
Prepare Jello according to package directions.
Set aside 1/3 cup.
Add fruit to remaining Jello.
Spoon into 4 to 5 dessert or wine glasses.
Chill glasses at an angle until jello is set (overnight is best)
Fold whipped topping into remaining (1/3 cup) jello.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
Spoon topping mixture into glasses of set jello.
Top with a dollop of Cool Whip
Garnish with fresh strawberries.
