1 cup boiling water
1 pkg (4-serving) black cherry gelatin
1 cup cold water
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
Pour the dry gelatin mix into a medium mixing bowl. Stir the boiling water into the gelatin stirring for a couple of minutes until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in the cold water.
Pour the mixture into a 9-inch square baking dish and refrigerate at least 4 hours or until firm.
Cut the set gelatin into small cubes. Set aside half the whipped topping. Into 4 dessert dishes or glasses, place a layer of gelatin cubes, a layer of whipped topping, and another layer of gelatin cubes. Top each with a dollop of the remaining whipped topping to serve.
NOTE: This is a good diabetic dessert if you use sugar-free gelatin and sugar-free whipped topping.
