Remember Jell-O 123?

I used to love this!  

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, back in the late 70's and into the 80's, Jell-O had this cool dessert that was easy as 1-2-3.  Like the box says, one mix makes three layers.  Just blend it up and chill.  It separated by itself.  Talk about a neato dessert.  You could set it at an angle in the fridge and really make it fancy.

So last night I was really in the mood for something like this, but all I had in the house was cherry Jell-O, Ready Whip and fresh strawberries.
  1. Make Jell-O according to package instructions
  2. Pour half of your Jell-O into dessert cups and set aside the other half into another container and refrigerate
  3. When it's set, combine the Jell-O that was set aside of with an equal amount of Reddi Whip and mix well.
  4. Pour into your glasses of Jell-O and refrigerate
  5. Top with more Reddi Whip and garnish with fresh strawberries

FYI - cherry Jell-O and strawberries don't go well together.  Something about the tartness of either the cherry flavor or the strawberries made it kind of weird.  It's an interesting idea, but don't follow the above instructions!

According to Kraft, Cool Whip is better, and by the way, use fruit that matches your flavor.  Duh.  Maybe next time.
