"I got this idea from a recipe by QueenBea called Homemade Popsicles: recipe #448. So her recipe morphed into one of our favorite frozen treats."

Stir sugar, Jello and Kool-Aid mixture together with 2 cups of boiling water until thoroughly mixed.
After mixed thoroughly, add two cups of cold water.
Let mixture sit out for about 30 minutes to cool.
Place liquid in six 12 ounce plastic cups (I use semi clear) about half way full and freeze for about 5-6 hours.
At the end of the 5-6 hours, remove the cups from freezer and use an ice cream scoop to scoop out 1/2 of the semi-frozen Jello mixture from each cup, one at a time and place the scoop in a bowl.
Scoop out a scoop of vanilla ice cream and place it into the cup where the Jello mix was scooped out of and press it down into the cup
Then take the Jello mixture that was scooped out and place it back in the cup on top of the vanilla ice cream and press it down.
Next take another scoop of vanilla ice cream and place it on top of the frozen Jello mixture and press it down.
Do the same with each plastic cup.
Each cup should be layered with Jello mixture, ice cream, Jello mixture and ice cream creating a parfait.
Place cups back in the freezer and freeze for an additional 4 hours and cover them with foil.
Garnish with whip cream and enjoy!
