Ingredients

  • cups boiling water divided
  • 1 cup ice cubes divided
  • 1 box (3 oz) berry blue Jell-O
  • 1 box (3 oz) cherry Jell-O
  • 1 cup Cool Whip thawed
  • 1 ready-to-use graham cracker crumb crust or shortbread crust
  • fresh blueberries and chopped strawberries for garnish

Instructions

  • In a bowl add blue jello and ¾ cup boiling water. Stir together until dissolved. Add ½ cup of ice cubes and stir until ice cubes are melted.
  • Pour blue jello into the prepared graham cracker crust.
  • Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes, until it is soft set.
  • While blue layer is in the fridge, prepare red jello layer. In a bowl, add red jello and ¾ cup boiling water. Stir together until dissolved. Add ½ cup ice cubes and stir together until ice cubes are melted.
  • Let sit for about 10 minutes to thicken up a bit.
  • Take pie out of the fridge and spread 1 cup Cool Whip on top of blue jello layer.
  • Once red jello is thickened (not set), spread over the Cool Whip layer.
  • Cover and refrigerate pie at least 6 hours (I do overnight). When ready to serve, dollop each slice with Cool Whip and fresh berries or use a piping bag and pipe Cool Whip around the edges of pie.

Notes

You only use 1 cup of the Cool Whip for the pie. Save the rest for when you serve it; either dollop some onto each slice, or put it in a piping bag and pipe it on the pie. Garnish with the fresh fruit.
Make sure that the Cool Whip is completely thawed and soft before spreading it on the blue Jello. It is very difficult to spread if it's half frozen still.
