My brother texted me last week asking if I had my moms Jello Parfait recipe. I told him that there is no recipe; she saw it on the back of a Cool Whip container and the rest was history. Every Thanksgiving after that, it was always on our dinner table. I, however, was never a fan of the stuff. Too, too, sweet. You will notice that I rarely post dessert recipes. But really, I do need to start doing that. Anyway, for my posterity, here is my moms Jello Parfait "recipe".
1 large 16oz container Cool Whip
1 jello packet - flavor of your choice - strawberry or orange are good ones
1 can of fruit cocktail, or any canned fruit, or fresh sliced fruit of your choice: strawberries, blueberries, pears, bananas, etc.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Chill. Serve.
