Ready for the 4th??

Found this while looking for ideas for the 4th... Looks easy enough!!


  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 pkg. (8-serving size) or 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Brand Gelatin, any red flavor
  • ice cubes
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 pkg. (12 oz.) pound cake, cut into 10 slices
  • 1-1/3 cups blueberries, divided
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed


  • SLICE 1 cup of the strawberries; cut remaining strawberries in half. Set aside.



  • STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mix in large bowl 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to cold water to measure 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted. Refrigerate 5 min. or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Meanwhile, line bottom of 13×9-inch dish with cake slices. Add sliced strawberries and 1 cup of the blueberries to thickened gelatin; stir gently. Spoon over cake slices.



  • REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm. Spread whipped topping over gelatin. Arrange strawberry halves on whipped topping for stripes of flag. Arrange remaining 1/3 cup blueberries on whipped topping for stars. Store in refrigerator.
