      This was a huge surprise and earned a spot for our coming Easter dinner table too. I had that stray box of lemon jello in the pantry and decided to try this. My family was so glad I did and we've found a new favorite too. I made as directed other than substituting 48 mini colored marshmallows for the 12 large ones. The bottom layer is stuffed full of fruit and would be excellent on it's own, but the pineapple custard like layer puts this over the top! Yum! Thank you and Aunt Jane for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
