Rainbow Ribbon Mold

Look at this masterpiece! It almost looks like a piece of art. My little boy loved it. He kept saying, "Let's eat the rainbow mommy! Please, please, please!!!!"

This was fun to make...well, until about the 8th layer! :) You have to give yourself plenty of time to make this mold (about 6 hours to be exact); otherwise, you will catch yourself up after midnight trying to rush it along like I did!

Rainbow Ribbon Mold

Prep Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 5 hours 30 minutes

6 1/4 c. boiling water, divided
5 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O brand gelatin, any 5 different flavors, divided
1 c. sour cream or vanilla lowfat yogurt, divided

Stir 1 1/4 c. boiling water into 1 pkg. gelatin in small bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Pour 3/4 c. of the dissolved gelatin into 8-cup ring mold sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate about 15 minutes or until set but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger when touched). Refrigerate remaining gelatin in bowl about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Gradually stir in 3 T. of the sour cream or yogurt. Spoon over gelatin in pan. Refrigerate about 15 minutes or until gelatin is set but not firm.

Repeat process with each remaining gelatin flavor. (Be sure to cool dissolved gelatin to room temperature before pouring into mold.) Refrigerate gelatin as directed to create a total of 10 alternating clear and creamy gelatin layers.

Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Cut into 16 slices to serve. Store leftover gelatin in refrigerator.
