7-Layer Gelatin Salad


4-1/2 cups boiling water, divided
7 packages (3 ounces each) assorted flavored gelatin
4-1/2 cups cold water, divided
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk, divided
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Sliced strawberries and kiwifruit, optional


1. In a small bowl, add 3/4 cup boiling water to one gelatin package; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Stir in 3/4 cup cold water. Pour into a 3-qt. trifle or glass bowl. Refrigerate until set but not firm, about 40 minutes.
2. In a clean bowl, dissolve another gelatin package into 1/2 cup boiling water. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water and 1/2 cup milk. Spoon over the first layer. Refrigerate until set but not firm.
3. Repeat five times, alternating plain and creamy gelatin layers. Refrigerate each layer until set but not firm before adding the next layer. Refrigerate, covered, overnight. Serve with whipped topping and, if desired, fruit.
