Rainbow Jell-o

For my son's birthday/baptism dessert table, I made some rainbow Jell-o Shots...NO...there was no alcohol:)  The kids LOVED these and they were one of the first things gone!  I got the plastic shot glasses at a restaurant supply store and I also got some cute mini spoons to go with them.  Perfect size for kids!!  I found the recipe on the Do Better Blog.  This recipe is so awesome because it looks like you used Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue jell-0, but I only used Red, Yellow and blue.  Trick of the eye:)  Here is the recipe!!  Enjoy!

Rainbow Jell-o

6 oz. box of Blue Jell-o
6 oz. box of Yellow Jell-o
6 oz. box of Red Jell-o
3 packets of Knox Gelatin (1 box gives you 4 packets)
boiling water
ice cubes

Start with the blue jell-o and mix a packet of know gelatin...mix the powders together.  Pour in 2 cups of boiling water.  Dissolve the gelatin.  Add 1/2 cup of ice.  Stir until thick.  Remove any bubbles that have formed.  Pour into a 9 x 13" pan or put into the shot glasses.  Let set in the refrigerator.

Repeat with the Yellow Jell-o and then do the Red Jell-o.  You can top it with some Whipped Cream as well.  Just don't take a short cut and use that Redi-Whip stuff...It totally melts!
