How do I make it ?
Add 1 cup boiling water to strawberry jelly powder in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Cool slightly.
Meanwhile, sprinkle unflavored gelatine over cold water in separate medium bowl; let stand 1 min. Add remaining boiling water; stir until gelatine is completely dissolved. Stir in milk and extract. Spoon 2 Tbsp. creamy gelatine mixture into each of 6 dessert glasses. Refrigerate 15 min. or until gelatine is set but not firm. Let remaining gelatine mixture stand at room temperature until ready to use.
Spoon 1-1/2 Tbsp. strawberry jelly over creamy gelatine layer in each dessert glass. Refrigerate 15 min. or until strawberry jelly layers are set but not firm. Meanwhile, let remaining strawberry jelly stand at room temperature until ready to use.
Repeat layers, in alternating colours, to use remaining creamy gelatine and strawberry jelly, refrigerating 15 min. after each strawberry layer. Refrigerate finished parfaits 1 hour or until all layers are firm.
Top with Cool Whip and crushed candies just before serving.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
For best results, prepare these festive parfaits in straight-sided dessert glasses.
Gelatin Success Tip
To make Jell-O Jelly that is clear and uniformly set, be sure the jelly powder is completely dissolved in the boiling water. Stirring with a rubber spatula will help to completely dissolve the jelly powder.
