Yoda Wisdom and Gummy Bear Gelatin Layered Dessert

“Do or do not, there is no try.” ~Yoda

This quote says a lot. Success or failure are your only options. When you say, “I’ll try,” you are hedging your bets, not committing fully to your endeavor. How often do we do that to ourselves? “I’ll try” implies that we anticipate failing. Some things in life are worth full commitment. Do or do not, succeed or fail, but put your whole heart and soul into it.

Okay, Monday philosophy lesson is now over. It is time for Gummy Bear Salad/Dessert. Be warned: this is weird stuff. If you let it sit for more than 24 hours, the gummy bears swell up and become part of the jello. Hmm. Borg jello? Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated?

Gummy Bear Jello

1 small box green gelatin

1 small box orange gelatin

1 small box red gelatin

8 oz tub whipped topping

1 c. multi-colored mini-marshmallows

1 c. gummy bears

Make green gelatin according to box directions. Pour into 9×13 glass pan. Refrigerate until mostly set. Sprinkle gummy bears on top. Mix orange gelatin according to directions. Carefully spoon on top of green layer and gummy bears. Sprinkle marshmallows on top. Refrigerate until soft set. Mix red gelatin according to box directions. Fold in whipped topping. Spread over other layers. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Serve and wait for the comments.
