There are many versions, and no, you just stir in the powdered stuff. Tastes best if you let it sit a while so the jello dissolves, though. It's a great dessert for diabetics, because you can use sugarless jello and fruit and lowfat cottage cheese, if you wish. They make a sugar free Cool Whip, but it doesn't have that much anyway. One of our guests (a diabetic, who gave me the recipe) really likes Pink Stuff!
Stuff could come in all colors, really. Green would be nice, or orange!
