Unlike the two respondents before me, I had great success. I wonder if they watched the video because the recipe does not state to "spoon" the red jello on top of the cool-whip. Also, i did not use sugar free jello so i don't know if that made the difference in the thickness of the jello or not but also make sure that you don't put more than 1/2 cup of ice cubes in or the jello won't thicken. I also tweaked the recipe and everyone thought i was another martha. I took a mylar stencil with stars that circle the border and put cool whip on to make stars on top of the pie. And i used an indivicual star a bit larger in the middle. It was awesome and perfect. Huge success!

I made this a couple of years ago and liked it. I was kind of afraid to try again after reading the comments. I tried letting the red set up a little longer and it seemed to work. I put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to cool. I also slowly poured the red at the side of the crust so it could gently and slowly run across the cool whip. Did not have any trouble with the Cool Whip floating to the top this way. The blue layer definitely takes about 25 minutes to set up. I bought a deep dish crust as suggested by someone else and I would have to say that is key. Just a little patience and this turned out a lot better than I anticipated!

I agree with the others, I made this and it looks aweful, and it had to sit longer than 10 minutes.

I made this today for a picnic, I haven't tasted it yet but it was really easy to make. It looks good and I didn't have the problem with the cool whip and red jello mixing. I actually watched the video first then made it. I made my own whipped cream and and let the blue layer sit in the fridge for maybe 15 min(the time it took to make the red layer and the whipped cream) and probably left the red jello on the counter for maybe 5-8min (the time it took to make the whipped cream) I used a spoon to spoon the red jello on the whipped cream.

Loved it. It was a great recipe and really easy to make. The cool whip floated for me as well. I'll have take more time next time so that doesn't happen.

It tasted good because of the jello but it was UGLY to look at. The cool whip floated on top of the red layer and it ended up being a pink/white, red and blue cake. I was very dissapointed and didn't even bring it to the party!

I agree with the first post. It doesn't take 5 - 10 minutes for the blue jello to set. I waited about 25 minutes before it was somewhat set. My cool whip layer rose to the top of my red gelatin layer as well. I am quite disappointed in this recipe as I have guests coming over tomorrow and I have to serve them this pie!! At least it will get a laugh. If anyone else is going to make this, I would refrigerate the red gelatin as well (in the glass bowl) because it takes way longer for the red gelatin to get firm as well. I think the reason why the cool whip floated to the top of the red gelatin was because the red gelatin wasn't set up enough. Good luck!!

The recipe is good, but then again it is Jello-O, how could it not be good. Two major problems with the receipe. First, it DOES NOT take 5-10 minutes for the blue layer of Jello-O to firm up. It is more like 20-25 minutes! Second, the Cool Whip floats up to the top of the red layer so the pie does not look nearly as good as the picture, in fact it looks pretty gross.

Made for a pre-fourth party this weekend, it was a hit and EASY to make. Will definitely make again.
