Patriotic Jigglers



  • 2 small boxes or 1 large box any flavor red JELL-O
  • 2 small boxes or 1 large box blue JELL-O
  • 1 container whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 (11 x 7-inch) pans
  • 4 to 6 ounce clear plastic cups
  • Small star-shaped cookie cutters (optional)
  • Large tray
  • Cherries (optional)


  1. Pour one flavor of gelatin into the mixing bowl.
  2. Add 1 1/4 cups of the boiling water and use a rubber scraper to stir until all of the gelatin has dissolved (about two minutes).
  3. Pour the mixture into one of the pans.
  4. Repeat with the other flavor of JELL-O.
  5. Put the pans into the refrigerator and let the JELL-O chill for about three hours.
  6. Put about an inch of warm water into the sink. Dip just the bottom of the pan (don't let the water come up over the sides) into the water for 15 seconds.
  7. Use the star-shaped cookie cutters or the table knife to cut shapes.
  8. Use your hands to lift out the shapes onto another tray.
  9. Repeat with both flavors.
  10. Make a thin layer of blue jigglers, then a layer of whipped cream, then a layer of red jigglers, and then another layer of whipped cream.
  11. Top with a cherry if you would like and then enjoy!
