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 eye-catching layered jello recipe with other flavors if you like — like pomegranate-blueberry (for the red) and melon fusion (for the green).
