Easy directions for making the pretty Jell-O strawberry parfait
Start with sweet, ripe strawberries.
Prepare gelatin according to the package directions. Place in the refrigerator and chill until slightly thickened. Set aside 1/3 cup.
Preparing the glasses to create the slope effect
You will need to keep the serving glasses tilted so the Jell-O will create the lovely slopped effect. The easiest way I found to keep the glasses tilted, is to place in them in a loaf pan.
Next, add the strawberries that have been hulled and sliced to the remaining gelatin; spoon into 4 to 5 pretty glasses.
Chill glasses at an angle until Jell-O is set.
Meanwhile, fold whipped topping into measured (1/3 cup) gelatin.
Stir until incorporated.
Spoon topping mixture into the glasses of set Jell-O. Chill. Garnish with additional strawberries and tiny mint leaves, if desired.
