Rainbow Gelatin Recipe

Our kids love this salad's array of colors. The cool cream cheese layers complement the layers of gelatin.—Steve Mirro, Cape Coral, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:16-20 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 packages (3 ounces each) fruit-flavored gelatins of your choice
  • 6 cups boiling water, divided
  • 3 cups cold water, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into six cubes

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve one package of gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water; stir. Spoon half into an oiled 10-in. fluted tube pan. Chill until almost set, about 40 minutes. Cool the other half of gelatin mixture; pour into a blender. Add one cube of cream cheese and blend until smooth. Spoon over the first layer. Chill until set. Repeat five times, alternating plain gelatin layer with creamed gelatin layer, and chilling between each step. Just before serving, unmold onto a serving platter. Yield: 16-20 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe takes time to prepare since each layer must be set before the next layer is added.
