Rainbow Jello

Rainbow Jello is also a standard for the annual St. Patty's Day feast. They are so pretty but I don't have enough patience to make it myself. Luckily, other people do :)

8 oz cool whip
1 2/3 cup sour cream
5 small pkg of Jello of varying colors
( black cherry, strawberry, orange, lime, lemon)

Mix one package of jello with one cup boiling water in 2 cup glass measuring cup.  Mix until completely dissolved.  Pour half of contents in small bowl.  Add 2 Tbsp cold water into the half still in the cup.  Pour into 9x13 pan.  Put pan in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, to the other half in the bowl, add 1/3 cup sour cream and whisk until well mixed.  Let cool to room temperature. When the 20 minutes is up for the first layer, spread the sour cream mixture into the pan.  Let set for 20 minutes.  Repeat all of this four more times so you have five different kinds of jello and ten layers.  Use the jello in order of dark to light colors.  After all ten layers have set, top with cool whip.  If you stay with it and are on the ball, this takes about 3.5 hours.
