Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Add boiling water to jelly powder in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add Cool Whip; stir with whisk until Cool Whip is completely melted and mixture is well blended. (Mixture will be thin.)
  • Pour into 10 glasses, 6-cup mold or glass bowl sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Refrigerate 8 hours or until firm. Unmold before serving.


During refrigeration, the jelly mixture will magically separate into two layers - a creamy layer and a clear jelly layer.


Is the Cool Whip still frozen? No need to worry. Just follow the recipe as directed, substituting the still-frozen Cool Whip for the thawed Cool Whip. Just be sure to stir the jelly mixture until the Cool Whip is completely melted as directed before pouring into the prepared mold.


Experience a different flavoured dessert each time just by changing the flavour of the jelly used.

    My Grandmother used to make this without using Jell-O, she was doing it the good Old Fashion way with plain Gelatin, then she would crush fruits, used the Juices as the Liquid alone with Hot Water. Mix it extremely well. Add the Homemade Whip Cream, Fold in, then add the fruits. I used to make a pig of myself everytime Memere would make this. She used to call my mother for me to get dropped off at her place so that I could help her out to make DESERTS. My Memere's old way, I would give it a PERFECT 5 STAR, While for Kraft's Version, I give it a 4.0 to a 4.5 depending on what flavour of Jell-O Powder.
