Had been having a nasty sore throat for a couple of days, and decided to make something that's fun and easy. This recipe takes some time to assemble, so I usually make it the night before. There are several variations to this dessert, and some requiring sour cream or condensed milk. My personal preference is to use Carnation evaporated milk as the result is not too tangy nor too sweet. This recipe was adapted from cooks.com, and makes a 9x13 pyrex dish, and the eighth layer almost reach the top. This is a fun dish for kids, and easy on my sore throat too!

Each layer is mixed one at a time in order given. Place in a glass cake pan. Mix the first layer. Let it set. Make sure it sets level in refrigerator, about 30 mins. Mix second layer. After mixed together let stand for awhile on counter. When first layer is firmly set, carefully pour second layer on top. Return to refrigerator to set firm.
