It worked! Yes, it took about 8 hours, start to finish (not constant attention, of course) but once a year? I say worth it. Start the laundry, make a layer. Empty the dishwasher, make another layer. Blog, make another layer. Read to the kids, another layer. :) I'm making it a tradition for St. Pat.'s day from now on. Nevermind that after we enjoyed a few pieces from it during a leprachaun lunch, I left the remaining 2/3s in the car and it melted to a cloudy slop. At least I got the picture first, eh?
Here's the recipe one more time:
3 oz grape jello
3 oz berry blue jello
3 oz lime jello
3 oz lemon jello
3 oz orange jello
3 oz red jello (cherry, raspberry)
2 cups sour cream
Boil 1 cup water. Pour into a bowl and add 1 box of jello (starting with the grape). Mix until jello is dissolved. In another bowl place 1/3 cupsour cream. Add 1/2 cup of the jello water to the sour cream. Stir untilcombined. Pour sour cream mixture into 9x13 pan. Place in fridge for 20 minutes or until firm. Add 3 T cold water to the remaining 1/2 cup of jello water. Pour over sour cream mixture in the 9x13 pan. Continue with all the other jello ending with red. Serve with whipped cream on the side and rolos for the pot of gold (or any other candy wrapped in gold foil, such as almond kisses or gold coins).
