I by no means invented this idea or recipe!   However I am totally guilty of thinking that it was more work than it was worth to make these cute little red, white & blue layered jello treats.  It’s really one of the simplest treats I could make and it has such a fabulous visual impact on your taste buds as well as for your holiday food table!

Red White and Blue Layered Jello

Jell-O is a treat that I often forget about!  It’s so delicious that I can’t imagine why this happens but it does.  I think the 4 hour set time always intimidates me because normally I am a last minute gal and I normally am lacking that 4 hour set time window!  Ha!  The truth hurts!  :)  However when I do get my act together I can make these guys up and they are such a big HIT!  And frankly, they are so easy.  If you can stir, you can do this!

The kids think these are the greatest things ever and why wouldn’t they?  Jell-O & Whip Cream?!?  Yes please!  They are mighty tasty if I do say so myself!  I did partake in Jell-O eating.  Any small clear plastic container works for these!  I love these clear drinking cups!  You could use glass containers also but I have kids and our parties are normally outside so I like to stick to plastic!  LOL!

These look amazing on my party table!
