I done something similar to that before. Not with marshmellows.  I would add pineapple to one layer of jello. Then have added cream cheese in some other layers of jello. But did this one in a clear punch bowl type bowl.  I did a rainbow of colors in the layers.  The true recipe I do is called Ribbon Jello. It looks so pretty in the bowl.
