Stir remaining 1 cup boiling water into remaining package of strawberry gelatin in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup cold water. Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).

Stir in half of the whipped topping. Gently stir in measured gelatin cubes. Pour into 9-by-5-inch pan.

Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight until firm. Unmold. Garnish with remaining whipped topping and gelatin cubes, if desired. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator. Serves 16.

Unmolding: Dip mold in warm water for about 15 minutes. Gently pull gelatin from around edges with moist fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate; holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.
