Jell-O Squares


This recipe has been in the family for years. It even got included in an article in the local newspaper about kids cooking that featured some of our three's favorite recipes. One nice thing about it is the you can vary the colors for whatever the occasion, from the red white and blue here to red and pink for Valentine's Day or purple and orange for Halloween. The other fun thing is getting people to try to guess what's in the white middle layer. No one ever gets it right.
