More About This Recipe

  • File this easy and adorable treat under “Wish I’d Thought of That.” Sky Parfaits. Aren’t they brilliant? Just gelatin and whipped topping, but the end result is anything but ho-hum. I smile just looking at them! (Here’s the link to Anastasia's Palace blog where I spied them!) But there’s another category for these little parfaits – quick, easy, fun dessert ideas. You won’t even need a mixing bowl for this one! Pressed for time? You can definitely make the gelatin a day or two before, and just let it hang out in the fridge until you’re ready for it. This is a departure from the original recipe, which calls for partially set gelatin. (I made the change because I’m usually doing this sort of entertainment pre-prep at 11 p.m. or so and I don’t think setting and raking makes much of a difference in the finished desserts. Either way works though and will still look cute and taste delicious!)
  • A word on glassware. Technically, these aren’t parfait glasses. Secret: I don’t own parfait glasses. So, I used some small-size beer glasses. That’s another thing that makes these easy, they can be assembled in champagne flutes, juice glasses, martini glasses, or whatever you have on hand. I left the quantities out of the recipe. Serving size will depend on you and your chosen glass size. But a good rule of thumb is that one package of gelatin equals four servings. I used about 2/3 as much whip topping to the volume of gelatin. (Sigh. I just love whip). So basically, four servings equals 1 package of gelatin, or 2 cups of gelatin, and 1 and 1/3 cups of whip.
