  • Microwave grape jelly on 30-second intervals until smooth and liquid. Pour into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add Cool Whip to the grape jelly and mix until combined. Spread a small amount of the grape jelly mixture in a pie plate, plate, or cake stand (but make sure there's room in the fridge for it first).
  • Arrange 19 Ritz Crackers in a circle so they stick to the grape jelly mixture, do not overlap them. Add a layer of the grape jelly mixture on top and then another layer of 19 crackers and repeat until all of the crackers and the grape jelly mixture are used up, finishing with the grape jelly mixture. There should be 7 cracker layers total.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Slice and serve chilled.
