Watermelon Gelatin Dessert

For a refreshing change, flavor your party with this "fruitful" favorite! Since the treat is so easy to prepare, you'll likely want to serve it for many occasions!


12 to 15 servings


2 (3 ounce) packages lime gelatin
6 cups boiling water, divided
1 (3 ounce) package watermelon gelatin
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry gelatin
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups white grape juice
1 (12 ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided


In a large bowl, dissolve lime gelatin in 3 cups boiling water. Pour into an 8-inch square dish coated with cooking spray. In a another large bowl, combine watermelon and strawberry gelatins; stir in the remaining boiling water until gelatin is dissolved. Pour into another 8-inch square dish coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate both dishes until gelatin is very firm.

Meanwhile, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. In a small saucepan, bring grape juice to a boil; stir in softened unflavored gelatin. Stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Pour into a large bowl; refrigerate for 45 minutes or until slightly thickened. Gently fold in 2 cups whipped topping.

Cut green gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes and red gelatin into 1-inch cubes. Place 2 cups whipped topping mixture in a large bowl; fold in green gelatin. Spread into a 13 x 9-inch dish coated with cooking spray. Fold red gelatin into remaining whipped topping; spread over green gelatin layer. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set. Cut into squares.
