Step 1

In a glass bowl, add boiling water then stir in contents of both Jell-O packages and the marshmallows until dissolved, about 2–3 minutes. Add cold water, pineapple and banana slices and stir. Refrigerate in a 4-quart or larger serving bowl for 4 hours or until firm.

For topping, combine sugar, flour and pineapple juice in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Beat egg and whisk into mixture. Add butter and cook until mixture thickens, about 4–5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add cream cheese, stirring until melted. Allow to cool. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on top of Jell-O once firm. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
