"A friend of mine gave me this recipe about 20 yrs ago and I've been making it ever since. The only I've changed is I use yogurt instead of whipped topping. This dessert is just as great with other flavors that I've used. My family and friends love this dessert whichever flavors I use."

"This recipe always goes over well, especially with kids but adults love it too. I have used other gelatin flavors such as cherry and lemon."
