How to Make It

  1. Combine cherry-flavored gelatin and 1 1/2 cups boiling water in a bowl; stir until gelatin dissolves (about 3 minutes). Add 1 cup cold water and 1 cup ice cubes; stir until ice melts. Chill until the consistency of unbeaten egg white (about 10 to 15 minutes). Fold in cherries; pour into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Cover and chill until set but not firm (about 30 minutes).

  2. Drain fruit salad in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2/3 cup juice. Combine peach-passionfruit-flavored gelatin and 1 1/2 cups boiling water in a bowl; stir until gelatin dissolves (about 3 minutes). Add the reserved juice, 1/3 cup cold water, and 1 cup ice cubes; stir until ice melts. Chill until the consistency of unbeaten egg white (about 10 to 15 minutes). Fold in fruit salad, and spoon over cherry mixture. Chill until firm (about 8 hours).

  3. Note: You can substitute sugar-free gelatin for the regular variety. For a 6-ounce box of regular, substitute the 6-ounce box of sugar free. For the 3-ounce box of regular, substitute the 3-ounce box of sugar free.
