4th of July Jello Jigglers

Okay - so I stole the photo while mine are still setting, but what a perfect treat to take to that 4th of July gathering - and the kids (and adults) can't get enough of this new twist on jello squares. 

1 large package raspberry jello (or your preference)
1 large package very berry blue jello (or your preference)
1 small package lemon jello
8 oz cream cheese - softened
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 t. salt
1 c. whipped topping (like cool whip)
1/2 bag miniature marshmallows (regular is fine too, mini just melt more quickly)

Place blue jello powder in bowl, and add 1 3/4 c. boiling water.  Mix until dissolved and pour into a 9 x 13" pan.  Place in refrigerator to set.

Place lemon jello powder in a bowl and add 1 c. boiling water.  Dissolve, then add miniature marshmallows- stir until melted/dissolved.
In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, mayonnaise and salt.  Once combined, add to marshmallow/lemon jello mixture.
Place in refrigerator until slightly set. 

Remove from refrigerator, add whipped topping, then pour over bottom layer once it has set. 
Refrigerate until set.

Place red jello powder in a bowl and add 1 3/4 c. boiling water.  Mix until dissolved, then pour over white/lemon layer, and refrigerate to set. 

Once set, cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters.  

Note - these can be made with any colors.  19 oz. crushed and drained pineapple can be added along with the whipping cream to the lemon mixture if desired.
