i used sugar free jello and it worked just fine. only took about 30mins to set, sprayed the pan w/ pam and i folded the first bit and held it there a few seconds for it to stick. then they rolled right up and didn't stick to the dish at all. i only cut it into 6 pieces, 12 seemed a bit small. the kids are excited for desert now, maybe they'll actually eat their dinner w/o me having to fuss at them! i'll probably 2x or 3x the recipe next time. maybe the sugar free doesn't make quite as much? doesn't matter though, i refuse to give my kids all that extra sugar.

love these pinwheels. I'm just wondering my marshmallows aren't as fluffy as in in the picture.
