Water to make the jello
Get a 9x13 deep glass dish or use a deep glass round casserole dish. Make the large orange jello using 2 cups boiling water then use 1&1/2 Cups Cold 7 UP or Sprite instead of the cold water. Let chill to soft set about 30 minutes or so till the jello is slightly firm. Then stir in 1 can of drained crushed pineapple. Refrigerate until firm. Once it is set mix up the peach jello using 2, 3 oz. boxes, 2 cups hot water & then 1 & 1/2 cups cold 7 UP or Sprite. let this sit in a separate bowl in the frig until soft set . Once soft set stir in 1 can Mandarin Oranges & pour over the orange layer already firm in your serving dish. Put back in the frig until firm. Once set up make the creamy layer. Mix the 8 OZ. Cream Cheese with the 2nd cans of drained crushed pineapple & Mandarin Oranges, Beat well. Fold in the Cool Whip. Spread over the set Jello's. Top with drained Pineapple rings. You may place a cherry in the center of each ring!
