Rainbow Jello

My co-worker was giving me a hard time today because I hadn't posted any recipes lately. So I thought I would share my favorite dessert recipe. It's called Rainbow Jello and it is superb! It was a must have at all family gatherings. It sounds like it's a lot of work, but there's a lot of refrigeration time. Here's the recipe:

Rainbow Jello
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lemon flavored gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package orange flavored gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cherry flavored gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package black cherry flavored gelatin
  • 2 C. sour cream (divided)
  • 6 C. hot water (divided)
  1. In a small bowl (or measuring cup) stir lemon gelatin mix into 1 Cup hot water for 2 minutes or until dissolved.
  2. Pour 1/2 C. of mixture into a 9x13 inch glass dish. Cover and let set in fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. While waiting for first layer to set, add 1/3 C. sour cream to remaining lemon gelatin mixture. Stir until mostly dissolved (there will be a few lumps)
  4. After first layer has set, approximately 20 minutes, pour second mixture on top and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 in order with remaining flavors.

Here's a picture:
