This recipe has been a big hit at family gatherings and potlucks for years! It could also be used as a light dessert. I have also used French Vanilla pudding mix. It makes a large amount so make sure to use a very large mixing bowl.
This is the moistest cake you will ever eat. I love it with strawberry jello and garnished with fresh strawberries. The Cool Whip makes such a pretty pure white and creamy frosting. It was my mom's favorite birthday cake. Prep time is also chill time
I get really frustrated with Jello that doesn't set-up. I have made these "fool-proof" jigglers a million times for my kids. It's the only recipe I've used that's firm enough to cut out with cutters. Very easy for kids to make, too.
A request for condensed milk recipes made me wonder if this was on here. I can't find it, so I'm posting it. It's a real old Aussie (and probably New Zealand) favourite, and is easy to make. I love it.
This is even better than Key lime Pie because it is creamy and much richer yet still light enough to serve after a heavy meal. A wonderful mix of sweet and tart. Don't let the use of unflavored gelatin and the long directions scare you off. If you can make Jello, you can make this. Just follow the directions & you'll be fine. This mousse is great for family desserts during the summer yet with some graham cracker crumbs and white chocolate curls on top, it is fancy enough for company also.
I remember being able to buy this type of dessert mix in the supermarket years ago. I don't know if it's still available, but if not, you can now make it from scratch! It is not vegan cause gelatin is not vegan!
A combination of cream cheese and whipped topping on a graham cracker crust topped off with peach slices and peach jello makes for a wonderful make ahead dessert. Allow time in the refrigerator to set.
I've made a couple different flavors and like cherry the best. It is one of those things that some adults love and some adults think is horrible. Kids think it is cool. Bright and cheery. Works great if you mix the colors (after it is prepared) to have team or school colors or appropriate colors for a holiday.
Chocolate and strawberries the perfect combination. This pie is one that you will be asked to make and again and again. Make this pie first thing in the morning and allow to chill until dinner time. The recipe comes from Plain & Fancy a cookbook by The Junior League of Richardson, TX.
My family was outraged when I recently banned premade Jello cups from our house. Enough already with the new convenient society, how hard is it to make Jello? To appease the rioting horde, I promised them I would make the best Jello they'd ever had, Jello they could pick up, the Knox Box I used to eat when I was a kid. Finding the super simple recipe was harder than I thought it would be, but I looked and looked and this is what I remember from my childhood. (The new Jello Jigglers don't cut it for me; they taste too much like gummy bears.) I'm surprised this isn't already on Zaar, but now it is!
