6.5 Layer Jello

So today I made a 7-Layer Jello dessert for the family.

I'd never made one before, and really didn't know much about it. As usual, it was Paul who suggested the recipe, and as usual, I fouled it up somehow.

How was I supposed to know that you're supposed to make it in a 9 x 13 pan and cut it into squares, like this example Paul found for me. Like the bad potato dumplings, I blame the recipe which didn't come right out and say what size container to prepare the dessert. So now I know for next time.

So why am I calling it the 6.5 Layer Jello dessert? Because the first layer wasn't ready before I aggressively poured the 2nd layer in. And they mixed. Oops. But I learned from my mistakes (something I pride myself in, by the way!) and the rest of it turned out pretty great.

I put it in a clear bowl, which the boys enjoyed looking at, and cut it into these silly-looking wedges. Go ahead...laugh! At least my boys enjoyed it and gobbled it up, except the red cherry-flavored Jello. The added Knox gelatin makes this a fine finger-food dessert for parties.

Maryann: I think I'll make a pink/red one for the Valentine's Day party? Cut into 2" x 2" squares?

Remember Johnny and the Jell-O the last time you brought it? Yes, please bring that kid some Jell-O...he loves it, and I don't usually make it, so it will be a treat. I like the clear bowl despite the wedge-shaped slices.
