First you need a Jello Flag Mold, you can find them on the Jello Website for cheap (right now they are $2.50 plus S&H of under $3). You can also find them on Ebay!
I made the one above for a get together and it was a hit, didn’t last long either!!
- 1 quart boiling water, divided
- 2 (3 ounce) packages jell-o brand berry blue gelatin mix
- 2 (3 ounce) packages jell-o brand gelatin powder, any red flavor
- 3 cups ice cold water, divided
- 1 (3 ounce) package lemon Jell-O gelatin
- 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip Topping, thawed
ADD 1-1/2 cups boiling water to dry berry blue gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir at least 2 minutes until gelatin is dissolved. Dissolve dry red gelatin mix in 1-1/2 cups boiling water in separate bowl. Stir 1-1/2 cups ice cold water into dissolved gelatin in each bowl.
SPRAY 10-cup flag mold with cooking spray; place on baking sheet. Pour red gelatin into mold. Refrigerate 45 minutes until set but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger when touched and should mound). Meanwhile, refrigerate berry blue gelatin in bowl for 45 minutes.
MEANWHILE, stir remaining 1 cup boiling water into dry lemon gelatin mix in bowl at least 2 minutes until dissolved. Refrigerate 25 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites), stirring occasionally. Stir in whipped topping with wire whisk. Gently spread over red gelatin in mold. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set but not firm. Gently spoon thickened berry blue gelatin over lemon gelatin mixture in mold.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or overnight until firm. Unmold.
I decorated mine with some fresh blueberries and whip cream. You can also add sliced strawberries across the red. Perfect for your July 4th, Memorial Day, and Labor Day BBQ!
