Give someone you love a ring tonight

Another delicious recipe from the Jell-O pages

Editor’s note: This vintage Christmas-themed molded Jell-O ring in red and green colors will help make the season bright! Lime and strawberry gelatin flavors were recommended in the ’80s, but you can update this eyecatching layered jello recipe with other flavors if you like — like pomegranate-blueberry (for the red) and melon fusion (for the green).
