Rainbow Layered Jello

This is really yummy.  It is a bit time intensive and you might find skeptics about mixing the different flavors of Jello, but it is actually quite good.  It is not hard, but you have to plan ahead because there are so many layers to set up.  Good luck!

Layered Jello 

*5 or 6 small boxes of various colors of Jello (i.e Grape, Cherry, Orange, Lime, Lemon)

*Boiling water

*1/3 C Sour Cream per box of Jello

 Dissolve one box of Jello in 1 C boiling water.  Add 1/3 C sour cream to ½ C  Jello mixture.  Place in Jello mold or 9 x 13 glass pan.  Make sure it covers the whole bottom of pan.  Allow to set in the fridge for 20 – 30 minutes.  When it is set add 3 TBLS cold water to remaining Jello and pour over the top of the first layer.  Pour carefully or you will mess up the first layer.  Continue with different colors of Jello until complete.  Top with a layer of Whip Cream Topping. 

You can also use colors to support a theme (i.e. alternated red and green for Christmas or purple and orange for Halloween. You could even do the same flavor, but alternating layers of normal and sour cream...say red for Valentines Day).

Wow - I followed your recipe and got the bundt pan idea from the picture, and I couldn't believe how great it turned out! I greased the bundt pan, started with the grape (I did the clear layers first) and poured each layer about a quarter of an inch thick. I used the extra to make a random layered mold for our family for later. (It took small boxes for purple and blue, then big boxes for the rest). When it was ready to unmold, I ran an knife around the outside and sat it in hot water for two seconds, and flooop, out came a perfect rainbow jello mold! Thank you for sharing!
