This is also an old jello recipe made many times for my family, the kids always like the colorful marshmallows. Sometimes I would pick out just all of one color for this jello other times kept them all mixed up. This is so easy to make you children or grand children will want to help you and of course eat a few of the marshmallow too, while helping. LOL.
This recipe was also posted in the Taste of Home Magazine---but is a lot older than this, about 1950's. Still good no matter when,or if some think it is a "new" recipe!
