RRC #8: Homemade Jell-O 1-2-3

Remember Jell-O 123? It seemed like magic, one uniform mixture seperated into 3 distinct layers during refrigeration. It was introduced in 1969, then pulled off the shelves and then it was back until the mid '90s when it was disconinued again. In Jell-O, A Biography, Carolyn Wyman included this recipe to make your own at home.


3/4 cup boiling water

1/2 cup cold water with enough ice cubes added to equal 1 1/4 cups

1/2 cup whipped cream

3 oz package any flavor Jell-O

In a blender, mix together the gelatin and the boiling water. Add the ice cube/water mixture and mix until the ice cubes are melted. Mix in the whipped cream for 30 seconds. Pour into dessert glasses. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Serve.
