2 (3-ounce) boxes Cherry Gelatin Dessert
2 (3-ounce) boxes Berry Bliss Gelatin Dessert
5 cups water for boiling, plus
Additional 4 cups cold water
1 (16-ounce) container Cool Whip
10 Mini Trifles
Place both boxes of cherry gelatin into a large plastic bowl, set aside. Place both boxes of berry bliss gelatin into another large plastic bowl, set aside. In a large pot, bring 5 cups water to a boil. (Use this amount because some of the water will boil down.) Once boiling, ladle out 2 cups hot water into the cherry gelatin and stir for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups cold water and stir, then place in the fridge to set for 4 or more hours. Ladle out another 2 cups hot water and add to the berry bliss gelatin, then stir for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups cold water and stir together, then place in the fridge for 4 or more hours to set. Set out mini trifles. Break red jello apart with fingers and drop down into the bottom of the trifles. Spoon in an even layer of cool whip. Break apart blue jello with fingers and drop down into trifle. Place additional cool whip in a plastic bag and snip the end with scissors. Top each trifle with cool whip and a cherry.
