Tie Dyed ice Cream

(originally made 7/2010)

Saw this on the board yesterday and just knew Jake would love it.   I didn't have the entire amount of ice cream needed, so I just made the layers thinner.   I used black cherry, orange, lime and grape.     The only problem I ran into was the bottom layer of jello powder not absorbing into the ice cream, next time I'd give it a quick spritz of water to make sure it was wet before I put the first round of ice cream in.    Thank you so much Twila!   :)

Ice cream is hard to photograph on 90+ degree days and we were pretty excited to eat it so I didn't fuss with it much  :)   Jake thought it was fantastic!

Tie Dyed Ice Cream

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
4 boxes (3oz size) powdered gelatin in different flavors
1. Let the ice cream set out at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes to soften.

2. Next, scatter 3 tablespoons of any flavor of powdered gelatin over the bottom of a sealable, medium-size square or rectangular container. Layer one quarter of the softened ice cream over the gelatin. Don't worry if the layer of ice cream is lumpy - it will look better that way.

3. Scatter 3 tablespoons of a second flavor of gelatin over the first layer of ice cream. Repeat this process, alternating layers of ice cream and flavors of gelatin, until you've used up the ice cream.

4. Top it off with a layer of gelatin, cover the container, and return it to the freezer for 2 to 3 hours to harden before serving.

5. To serve the ice cream, transfer the whole block from the container to a plate. To do this, run warm water over the outside of the container or set it in a sink filled with a few inches of warm water for 1 minute, then turn it upside down onto a plate.

6. To get a nice spiraled serving, scrape an ice-cream scoop or large spoon along the side of the block. Makes 16 servings
