Ingredients

  • 3 ounce package blue berry JELL-O
  • 3 ounce package cherry JEL-LO
  • 2 cups boiling water divided
  • 1 packet Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup milk divided
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Whipped cream
  • Strawberries and blueberries for garnish optional
  • 4 plastic wine cups

Instructions

  1. Start by emptying contents of blueberry JELL-O into a small bowl. Stir for 2 minute with 1 cup boiling water. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place plastic wine glasses onto a small tray or plate (this just makes it easier to move them in and out of the refrigerator.) Equally, divide blueberry JELL-O mixture between four cups. Place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or until JELL-O has started to set and can be touched.
  3. Meanwhile, start preparing white layer by mixing one packet Know unflavored gelatin in a small bowl with ¼ cup cold milk. Heat remaining milk, ¾ cup, over high heat until just before boiling, remove. Do not scald. Add 3 tablespoons sugar and a ½ teaspoon vanilla. Stir until dissolved and mix with cold milk and gelatin mixture. Stir until well mixed and allow to cool.
  4. Evenly pour white gelatin over blue layers. Place back into the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or until it starts to set.
  5. Next, prepare red cherry JELL-O by emptying contents into a small bowl. Stir for 2 minute with 1 cup boiling water. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. When white layer has set, equally divide red JELL-O over white layer. Return to refrigerator to set for 3-4 hours.
  6. Do not garnish until ready to serve, especially if it is a hot day, the whipped cream will melt fast! (Just take a look at the wilting cream in these photos and that was only 10 minutes!) Give each cup a dollop of whipped cream, a wedge of strawberry and a blueberry.
  7. Enjoy your Red, White, and Blue JELL-O Cups!

Recipe Notes

Having an adults only party?? Make your Red, White and Blue JELL-O Cups vodka laced. To modify, soak fruit in vodka in an airtight container for 12 hours, drain. For red and blue JELL-O layers, use only 1/2 cup boiling water to mix gelatin. Allow to cool slightly before stirring in 1/4 cup vodka. You can also purchase alcoholic whipped cream if you so choose.
