CHILL TIME

It's said that there's a Pot of Gold at the end of every rainbow. Well, this colorful gelatin dessert is sure to add sunshine and a rainbow of color to your taste buds and your table!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (4-serving size) package strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 (4-serving size) package orange-flavored gelatin
  • 3 cups boiling water, divided
  • 1 cup cold water, divided
  • 1 (4-serving size) package lemon-flavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. Prepare the strawberry and orange gelatins separately by dissolving each in 1 cup boiling water; stir until completely dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold water to each then pour into an 8-inch square pan.
     
  2. Chill about 1-1/2 hours or until firm, then cut into 1-inch cubes. Cover and set aside in the refrigerator.
     
  3. Dissolve lemon gelatin and sugar in 1 cup boiling water and stir in orange juice; chill until slightly thickened (about 30 minutes). Stir in pineapple tidbits and whipped topping; mix well. Fold in gelatin cubes and pour into a 10-inch bundt pan. Chill 6 to 8 hours, or until firm.
     
  4. When ready to serve, dip bundt pan three-quarters of the way up the sides in hot water for 10 seconds and invert quickly over a serving plate that is larger than the pan. Gently shake to loosen the dessert from the pan. Cut into 1/2-inch slices. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

I DIDNT HAVE THE LEMON OR ORANGE JUICE. I ALSO USED LIME AND CHERRY. I USED YOUR BASIC IDEAS ICUT THE JELLO IN CUBES ADDED THE WHIPPED TOPPING. LOOKED LIKE XMAS IT WENT OVER VERY WELL. MY BOWL WAS EMPTY! NEXT TIME I WILLMAKE IT THE RIGHT WAY AND I KNOW WELL LOVE IT

The directions might be confusing when it says "...pour into an 8" pan." I think you mean pour each flavor in to it's own 8" pan. Also I think the spelling for the abbreviated term for refrigerator should be fridge.

can this be taken to a Pot Luck ? Will it last out of the frig for about an hr or so ? Looks wonderful !

Hi Joy. Unfortunately it wont last outside very long. Inside it will only last about 15- 20 minutes out of frig before it starts to soften.

I used to make something very similar to this, but it was on a graham cracker crust in a 9x13 pan. Everyone that ate it told me it tasted like cheese cake.

i didnt try but looks great. anyone know a replacement for the frozen whipped topping?

Thank You!!!!!!... This really takes me back in time. My Grandmother made something similar to this....gonna try it out!

I can wait to try this!

pot of gold seems so delicious my daughter will love it.

"Hello Mr. Food"! I will be making 'Pot of Gold' soon! The other recipe; 'That Cherry Stuff,' was such a hit with my family and friends. When I make it for 'pot-lucks' ....... an empty bowl returns home with me. I have to have copies of the recipe, for everyone is always asking for it. Thanks again for your (delicious recipes) which are (always) tasty and very (easy) to prepare. I'm 64 years old ........... where was you when I was learning to cook (many years) ago?!!! (Smile) I'm glad your here now! Sincerely, Sherry
