Gramma’s Two Layer Jello

 

I’m sure there is an actual name for this Jello treat, but for me it’s always been Gramma’s specialty.  A couple years ago, I asked her for the recipe and the first couple times it never turned out how hers had, but I think it’s because I didn’t stir enough during each stage to make sure things were dissolved.  This is a favorite in our house and a must during all summer picnics. 

Ingredients/Directions: Combine 2 pkg’s Knox Gelatin with 1/2 cup of cold water.  Add 3oz pkg of Jello, any flavor.  Add in 1 1/2 cups hot water (either heat some water up in the microwave or on the stove, hot tap water won’t work!).  Stir and stir until everything is dissolved.  Mix in 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream.  Pour into a dish (I use a rectangle brownie pan), chill.  Cut into squares and serve.
