Many years ago when I was grocery shopping, Jello was giving away plastic star or bell molds when you purchased xx packages of Jello. I decided to do the deal, and picked up a star. There was also a recipe booklet.

Inside that recipe booklet was a Kaleidoscope Dessert recipe. I made that dessert for 10+ years, every year to take to Christmas dinner at my parent’s house. Everyone loved it!!

At some point (probably during a move) that star mold got lost. But I kept the recipe.

Last year at Christmas dinner I decided to make this dessert again (I served it as a side dish actually), and bought another star mold online. Silicone Star on Amazon – I “think” this is the same one on Ali Express – first time I had made this in a good 15 years! And it was still wonderful. (While I have never tried it, I am sure any large silicone mold will work.)

• Note: You can use the extra cubes as garnish if you like. I usually do, but for some reason they did not make the photos.
