Jell-o® Dive-on-in Cake

  • Prep Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes (Total Time 4 Hours 15 Minutes)
  • Serving Size: 15
  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 cups Boiling Water
  • 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) or 1 pkg. (8-serving size) JELL-O Brand Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin
  • 1 cup Cold Water
  • 1 tub (8 ounce) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, Thawed
  • 56 Mini OREO Bite Size Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
  • 6 TEDDY GRAHAMS Graham Snacks
  • 5 Ring-shaped Chewy Fruit Snacks
  • 4 Bite-size Fish-shaped Chewy Fruit Snacks
  • PREPARE and bake cake mix in 13x9-inch baking pan as directed on package. Cool completely. Invert cake onto large platter; remove pan. Using a serrated knife, cut and scoop out a shallow rectangle from center of cake, leaving a 2-inch border of cake on all sides and a thin layer of cake on the bottom. Reserve removed cake for snacking or other use. STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mix in large bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 1-1/4 hours or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). (Or, see Tip below for quicker set method.) Pour thickened gelatin into center of cake. Refrigerate 3 hours or until set. FROST borders of cake with whipped topping. Decorate with remaining ingredients as desired to resemble a swimming pool. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.


    Fun Idea Insert bite-size fish-shaped and octopus-shaped chewy fruit snacks into gelatin "pool" before refrigerating for an added treat!

    Shortcut For a quick-set gelatin, simply add 4 cups ice cubes to the dissolved gelatin mixture in place of the 1 cup cold water; stir 8 min. or until gelatin begins to thicken (spoon drawn through leaves a definite impression). Remove any unmelted ice. Pour thickened gelatin into center of cake; continue as directed.
