You could vary the flavor of this with different flavors of gelatin if you wanted to. 3 points per slice. Sorry, this recipe isn't core.

My mom introduced me to this recipe last year. This is a great dessert, nice light, flavorful, fluffy in texture. You can use any flavor of jello, strawberry is yummy! This recipe originally stated that this recipe fees 15, not 8. 8 portions give you a nice hardy piece however. Also, in the time stated it says it only takes 10 minutes to make however; please note it actually takes about 35 as it states in the directions. You want to allow time for the jello to cool properly before adding the dairy products. This is definatley a keeper!!
