Red White and Green Jello

Originally the green jello was blue. This was a fourth of July recipe, but since I am going to an Italian Catholic Federation dinner tonight, I thought I'd change blue to green and make this the colors of the Italian flag. This works for Hungary, Bulgaria, and any other country with a red, white, and green flag, though you may want to change the order the jello is layered in.

USA Jello Mold Recipe

3 3/4 cups boiling water
1 pkg. (8oz serving size) red flavor gelatin
1 pkg. (8oz serving size) green flavor gelatin
2 cups cold water
1 pkg. (4oz serving size) lemon flavor gelatin
1 pint vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, softened

STIR 1 1/2 cups boiling water into red (8oz serving size) and the green gelatin (8 oz serving size) in separate bowls until dissolved. Stir 1 cup cold water into each bowl.

POUR red gelatin into USA mold. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set but not firm. Reserve blue gelatin at room temp.

Meanwhile, STIR remaining 3/4 cup boiling water into lemon gelatin in bowl. Spoon in 1 pint vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, softened, until melted. Spoon over red gelatin in mold. Refrigerate 30 mins. or until set but not firm. Refrigerate green gelatin 30 mins.

SPOON green gelatin over lemon gelatin in mold. Refrigerate 4 hrs. or overnight until firm. Unmold
