This is from a Jello Collection Cookbook I've had for quite a few years. It is really a great recipe and you will be asked for a copy of it many times.

We love it although I don't make it very often.

How to Make Crown Jewel Dessert

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare lime, orange, and 1 package of strawberry jello separately as directed on packages, using 1 cup of boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water for each. Pour each flavor into separate 8 inch square pans. Refrigerate 4 hours or until very firm. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes, measure 1 1/2 cups of each flavor. Use the remaining gelatin cubes for garnish if desired or for snacking.
    Stir 1 cup boiling water into remaining package of strawberry gelatin in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water.
    Refrigerate 45 min. or until slightly thickened
    (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
    Stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Gently stir in measured gelatin cubes. Pour into 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
    Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Garnish with remaining whipped topping and gelatin cubes, if desired.


    * Or use any 3 different flavors of Jello gelatin to your liking.
  2. I sometimes make it in a deeper large round cake pan to change the shape and use a graham cracker pie crust base.
