  • Pour the dry gelatin mix into a mixing bowl, add the boiling water, and stir for at least 2 minutes or until completely dissolved.
  • To 1 cup of cold water, add ice until the level on the measuring cup reaches 1 1/2 cups.
  • Stir the ice water into the gelatin until the ice is completely melted.
  • Remove 1 3/4 cups of the gelatin and set aside. Refrigerate the remaining gelatin for 30 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  • Add 1 cup of the whipped topping to the chilled gelatin; then whisk it until the mixture is well blended.
  • Pour the mixture into 8 parfait glasses; then refrigerate for 15 minutes or until the whipped gelatin mixture is set.
  • Carefully pour the reserved gelatin over the creamy whipped layer.
  • Place the parfait cups back into the refrigerator for 3 hours or until the gelatin is very firm.
  • Top each serving with a dollop of whipped topping.
