Christmas Jello Salad

This is a fun and festive recipe given to me by my good friend Robyn. (Also the photographer for our family pictures). It's the perfect addition to your Christmas table with its layers of red, white and green. Don't be grossed out by the miracle whip. It adds creaminess but no taste. Everyone loved it and it's now a Christmas Eve tradition

1 large package red jello

8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup miracle whip

Make lime jello according to package directions. Put in 9 x 13 pan. Let set. Mix lemon jello with 1 cup hot water and mini marshmallows. Let cool. Add 1 cup of the pineapple juice, cream cheese, miracle whip, 1 cup of the crushed pineapple and the whipped cream. Pour on top of green layer and let set.

This didn't turn out well at all. I think the instructions need to be clearer (after I had issues, I researched other similar recipes & found that the marshmallows should actually melt, you should use boiling (not hot) water, and you should let it firm up itself before spooning it onto the first jello mixture). The addition of miracle whip was also very strange, and we didn't like the end taste. I had issues with the layers not setting & the final taste was off. I'm sorry, but I would not recommend this recipe to anyone!

I'm really sorry this recipe didn't work out for you. I detest miracle whip and I've never tasted it in this recipe before. When I get a chance, I'll retest the recipe.
