Happy 4th of July!
Jul 4th, 2013 by Eunice

What is more American than jello and rice krispie treats?  How about Jello flavored rice krispie treats…

IMG_6832

This is what I came up with for our 4th of July Celebration. The red layer is cherry flavored (raspberry would work for red too), the middle is a regular recipe and the blue layer is the blue berry Jello flavor (I only had half a box left, so the color is not as dark as it should be.)

 Jello Rice Krispie treats

4 T. Butter

1- 10.5 oz bag of mini marshmallows

6 cups Rice Krispie cereal

1- 3 oz package of Jello (any flavor)

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted, add in dry jello mix and stir until mixed together.  Remove from heat.

2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.

*For the red, white and blue treats.  I used a pyrex cake pan that is the size bigger than a 9×13.  (I think it’s 10×14)  I made 3 regular size batches of rice krispies and just put the different flavors in layers.  I made the red first, I put it in the bottom of the pan then the regular recipe without jello and then the blue jello layer.  When they were cooled and set I turned the pan over and dumped it out onto a cutting board before I cut it.

If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe for your 4th of July celebration, you should give this one a try!

Now go and have some patriotic Jello joy!

Raspberry Dessert
Feb 11th, 2013 by Eunice

Every year for my Birthday as long as I can remember, my mom has made me this delicious Raspberry Dessert.  My Birthday happens to be the day before Valentines.  But for people that don’t have their birthday so close to Valentines, this is a great dessert to make for your Valentine.  I usually would prefer something chocolate for dessert, but this really is non-chocolate perfection!

Raspberry Dessert

(This recipe makes two pans of dessert)

Cake:

2 C. Flour

1 ½ C. Sugar

3 tsp. Baking Powder

1 tsp. Salt

½ C. Butter (cut up)

1 C. Milk

2 Eggs

1 tsp. Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients together. Add cut-up butter and 2/3 cup milk. Beat 2 minutes at low speed. Add remaining milk, eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 minutes more. Pour batter into two greased 9×13 pans. Bake 30-35 minutes. Cool.

Filling:

2- 8oz. Pkg. Cream cheese, softened.

2 envelopes dream whip, prepared. Add to cream cheese and beat.

2 C. powdered sugar. Beat into above mixture.

Spread on cake and let chill for 1 hour

Topping:

3 packages Danish dessert mix

1 package frozen raspberries. You can add more depending on how much you like raspberries.

Prepare according to pie filling directions on back of package. Add raspberries and cool, but don’t set. When cool, spread on top of cream cheese mixture. Chill until set-overnight is best.  (The above picture was not chilled so top is a more soft set)

*If you don’t know what Danish Dessert, and Dream whip are here are some pictures.  I usually find them in the jello section of the grocery store.

Now go and make some Raspberry Dessert for your Valentine and enjoy some Jello Joy!

Nifty Jello in a Can
Feb 10th, 2013 by Eunice

The other day I was browsing around on Pinterest and I came across this pin of a old Dole Pineapple advertisement.

My first thought was why haven’t I ever thought of this?  So I decided then and there that I must try it!  It really couldn’t be easier to make and my kids thought that it was the best Jello that I had ever made.  I credit that to the cool visual effect- kids dig it.  Recently I made 6 cans for a family dinner:  2 with blue Jello, 1 with orange Jello, 1 with lemon Jello, 1 with lime Jello and one with red Jello.  I liked the look of the green the best, but they all tasted good.  After all of that, we were snowed in and stuck with 6 cans of pineapple Jello.

Nifty Jello in a Can

Pour out liquid from a can of sliced pineapple and discard.

Dissolve a 3oz. box of lime Jello in 1 cup boiling water (you could also use the pineapple juice and water to equal 1 cup liquid)

Pour hot Jello water over pineapple rings in the can.

Chill until set.  Run hot water on the sides and bottom of can to loosen.  Then cut the bottom of the can and push the mold out.  Cut between pineapple slices and serve.

*Optional:  top a slice with an ice cream scoop of cottage cheese or a dollop of whipped cream.

*You could also do this with other canned fruit and flavors of Jello, but you would lose the nifty pineapple ring effect.

Now Go Can Some Jello and Have a Nifty Night!

Jello popcorn balls

1 small box sugar free or regular flavor jello, any flavor

1 C. Sugar

4 quarts air- popped popcorn

Whisk corn syrup, jello, and sugar together in a pot and bring to a boil.  Boil 1 minute.  Pour over popcorn and mix well with a large spoon.  When mixture is cooled just enough to touch, grease hands and form into balls.
