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!

This was a blast from the past! It has been years since I had this. Thanks so much for posting it. Follow the directions as written and you can't miss. I did substitute fresh sweetened whipped cream for the non-dairy whipped topping.
