Chilled Monkey Brains (dessert from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom)

I adore the dinner scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I love it so much, I created my own version of all the recipes. Kid safe, family approved, and easy-to-find ingredients, though. Still fun to serve. Here's dessert:

Chilled Monkey Brains

2 small boxes of raspberry gelatin, the four serving size
2 c. boiling water
1 c. frozen blueberries, strawberries (chopped or sliced), raspberries, or any combination of frozen berries
1 c. very cold water
1 c. vanilla yogurt
1 8 oz. tub whipped topping

Mix gelatin in the boiling water. Stir at least 5 minutes until completely dissolved. Add frozen berries and cold water. Stir until it starts to thicken. Stir in yogurt and whipped topping. Pour into nice dish or mold. Brain molds are really nice. Refrigerate until set. Hide at the back of the table when serving so you have half a chance of leftovers. Take home the empty bowl and mix up another batch just for yourself.
