I love parfaits! I found this PIN from Kraft where they cooled the Jello at a slant and added cool whip. I thought this would be such a creative addition to my Kentucky Derby party and something that the kids would really like.
It was a hit with adults and kids alike! I sliced up some strawberries as a garnish to top it off.
Jello of choice
dish/glass for your jello (I used plastic cups)
Fruit if preferred
What to do:
I chose strawberry Jello and I found these plastic wine glasses at the Dollar Store that came 6 to a pack. It was a perfect single serving size. Also once the Jello was made per the instructions on the box, it filled 8 of these cups evenly without any leftover.
I had this wood U shape “box” that was a project reject but found new purpose as my glass holder. A little washi tape on the ends worked as a seatbelt to hold the glasses at an angle .
Slowly I poured the liquid Jello into the glasses. Then, with steady ninja like moves, I transferred my glasses to the fridge to set.
After your Jello is set, pipe in some Cool Whip and garnish. It was so cute. Next time I’ll add slices of strawberries to the liquid Jello.
I also found the version below from Lea’s Cooking that I’m eager to try for the 4th of July! She has a full step-by-step tutorial on how to make this festive treat!
