Celebrate the 4th of July with an American classic. Bedazzling Mini Stars are red, white, and blue layered stars made with gelatin and whipped topping. A patriotic treat for a patriotic day.
2 cups boiling water (divided)
1 pkg (3 ounces) berry blue-flavored gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup Frozen whipped topping (thawed)
1 pkg (3 ounces) strawberry or cherry-flavored gelatin
Additional whipped topping (optional)
vegetable pan spray
Gelatin serves 12.
Spray cavities of 2 silicone mini star molds with vegetable pan spray; place on baking sheet.
The patriotic layers of Bedazzling Mini Stars are made with red and blue gelatin separated by a whipped topping-gelatin layer. The simple trick to making this special dessert is to allow each layer to chill for about 10 minutes before adding the next. Plus, the flexibility of the silicone mini star molds means it´s easy to remove the gelatin for serving. And, the molds can be used to bake fantastic star-shaped treats such as cupcakes, brownies and cookies.
Serve the sparkling gelatin stars with a swirl of whipped topping or fresh fruit. Just be sure to keep them chilled until ready to serve!
In small bowl, combine berry blue gelatin with 3/4 cup boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Divide evenly among mold cavities. Refrigerate 5 to 10 minutes or until top is slightly firm.
Meanwhile, place 1/2 cup boiling water in small bowl; sprinkle unflavored gelatin over water. Stir 2 to 3 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Cool slightly. Fold unflavored gelatin into whipped topping. Carefully spoon over blue gelatin, dividing evenly among molds. Refrigerate 5 to 10 minutes or until top is slightly firm.
In small bowl, combine strawberry gelatin and remaining 3/4 cup boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Spoon over whipped topping layer, dividing evenly among molds. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until firm.
To unmold, gently pull gelatin away from sides of mold. Turn over onto serving plate. If desired, add swirl of whipped topping to each.
