Layered Jello Dessert

If you want an easy way to add color to any dessert table, try this yummy Layered Jello Dessert recipe. I have used it in many of my parties because it is just so versatile, colorful and fun! Here's what you'll need: 


At least two boxes of jello (you can use as many colors as you'd like!)
1/3 cup of sour cream per box of jello
Cool whip & sprinkles to top

1) Prepare boiling water and choose which color of Jello you will layer first. Mix 1 cup of boiling water with your first color of jello, stirring until Jello is fully dissolved. 

2) Split the jello into two equal portions, setting one portion aside and adding two ice cubes to the remaining portion. Stir the portion with ice cubes until completely melted, then pour equal amounts into your serving dishes. I like to serve these in individual glasses, but it will work just the same to serve in one large glass bowl. Put in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to set.

3) Once your first layer is set, add 1/3 cup of sour cream to the remaining half of your first Jello color. Whisk until thoroughly blended, then pour evenly in serving glasses. Put in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to set.

4) Repeat steps 1-4 for each color of Jello, being sure to allow each layer to set thoroughly before adding your next layer. 

Here is an adorable Anchors Away Baby Shower where I did this Layered Jello Dessert in pink and blue. You can use all pastels for Easter, red and blue for the Fourth of July - the possibilities are truly endless!

From my son's recent Glow in the Dark birthday party, these green and blue Layered Jello Desserts were a main feature on the dessert table. 

Have fun mix and matching with colors!
