Berry Blue Shooting Stars
Submitted by Starscr292
Everybody loves the way this looks (specially the kids) and it's a great, cool treat for those 4th of July bbq's!
1 c. boiling water
1 pkg. (4-serving size) Berry Blue Jello
2 c. ice cubes
1 c. Cool Whip
4 marshmallows (optional)
colored sugar (optional)
Add boiling water to Jello. Stir until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes. Stir until gelatin thickens (3 to 5 minutes). Remove any unmelted ice.
Spoon thickened jello into dessert dishes (for the best effect, use clear, parfait-type glasses) alternately with spoonfuls of Cool Whip to form clouds. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Garnish with additional Cool Whip and marshmallow stars.
Marshmallow stars - flatten marshmallows slightly with rolling pin and cut with a star-shaped cookie cutter. Moisten slightly with water and sprinkle with colored sugar.
