Jello Parfait Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is creeping up on us. I blinked and realized it had gone from the beginning of March to nearly 1/3 of the way through. When did that happen?!
I’ve been so caught up in petting zoo days at the preschool, 1st grade PTA performance presentations, planning for our first camping trip since having kids (send prayers and/or wine), and Spring Break that I’ve fallen behind on posting new recipes and there are a ton I have ready to go – so be on the lookout for lots of fun stuff in the days and weeks to come!
But first thing’s first. I’m going to start out with this posting frenzy by sharing a recipe for a super easy dessert recipe that has just two ingredients. It looks amazing but based on the presentation, no one will ever know just how easy it was to prepare! These St. Patrick’s Day Jello Parfaits are the answer to last-minute entertaining or even school parties because who doesn’t love Jello and Cool Whip?
There are so many lime jello recipes with cool whip but this one stands out with the angled presentation.
