READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MustangMom

This is in request to 1970's jell-o recipes. My mother used to make this, and we just loved it with black cherry jell-o -- still do! (Prep time does not include chilling time.)

This dessert has been around a long time I am 64 and my Mother made it for my brother 67<br/>and I when we were children and also for my daugher 36. I now make it for my grandsons.<br/>My Mom made it in a large jelly roll pan. I make a smaller version.
