2 cups boiling water
1 large box Orange Jello (6 ounces) or 2 small boxes (3 ounces each)
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups Cool Whip (that is about 75%-80% of a carton of Cool Whip), thawed
8” square pan
1. Place orange Jello in a large bowl. Pour in 2 cups boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved.
2. Add ½ cup cold water.
3. Stir in 2 cups (about 75-80% of the basic Cool Whip carton) of Cool Whip. It will melt. The mixture will be opaque. It will separate into a two layer Jello as it chills.
4. Pour into 8” square pan.
5. Chill until firm (preferably overnight).
6. Cut into squares. I cut 6 x 6 for 36 squares.
