“My mom used to make this every Christmas and every 4th of July. It was a real treat and was requested at all my siblings high school graduation open houses. It's yummy and beautiful to look at - so make sure you assemble it in a clear dish. Use your favorite Jello flavors and colors or vary by season! I'm having to guess at the preparation and "cook" (refridgeration) times, just so I can post this - so don't expect them to be exact.”
