My daughters picked this for their choice to make for our Irish Dinner Party.
I made a mini version up as well, and loved how it looked. When you serve the big one, it does start to look like a mess pretty quickly, so the mini versions are a good choice if you’re worried about that too. If you have time, allow a little extra chilling time between every couple layers to prevent colors bleeding through.
3 oz jello in 6 colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple)
Large container cool-whip (or greek yogurt)
Mix purple jello with 3/4 cup boiling water, stir to dissolve.
In a 4 cup measure add ice to 1/2 cup cold water to make 1 1/4 cups.
Whisk into hot jello, then remove any ice left after a couple minutes of stirring.
Reserve 2/3 cup jello, then pour the remaining in a trifle bowl or other container.
Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, preferably an hour.
Whisk 1/3 cup cool whip (or greek yogurt) into the reserved 2/3 cup jello, then gently spoon or pour over chilled jello.
Place back in the fridge for 1 hour.
Repeat for the blue, green, yellow, orange, and red layers.
Dollop with cool whip before serving.
For mini versions, assemble in half pint canning jars or other small containers.
