  • (1) 6 ounce package of Cherry Jello (or other red flavor)
  • (2) 3 ounce packages of Berry Blue Jello
  • (1) 8 ounce container of Cool Whip
  • Maraschino cherries (with stems)
  • Clear plastic cups


  • Make the Berry Blue Jello according to the package instructions. Fill your cups 1/3 full with the Berry Blue Jello (I used about 1/3 cup for my cups).
  • Place in fridge for 1 hour (or 10 minutes in the freezer if you're in a hurry).
  • Fill cups another 1/3 full with Cool Whip, smoothing out the top. I used about 2 tablespoons for my cups).
  • Place in freezer.
  • Make Cherry Jello immediately. Let cool in fridge for 20 minutes. You don't want to Jello to solidify at all, you just need it to cool down so you can pour it on top of your Cool Whip without melting it.
  • Remove cups from freezer and jello from fridge. Fill the remainder of your cup with red jello (leave a little bit of room at the top).
  • Refrigerate for another 20 minutes or just until jello starts to set slightly. Push one maraschino cherry with stem into the red jello, leaving the stem stick out like a little firework.
  • Refrigerate for another 30 minutes, or until jello is firm. Enjoy!
