Ice cream jello
Feb 14th, 2013 by Eunice

I know the clock is ticking and you might be thinking that you don’t have time to make any Jello for your Valentine, but you do!  Because you add ice cream to the Jello, it will set up faster.  If you don’t want to cut it into heart shapes, you can put it in a small bowl or individual containers like we did here, it only takes about an hour to set up.

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.

Valentines S’mores
Feb 10th, 2011 by Eunice

Are you still trying to figure out what to do for your valentine?  You can count on us, your friendly super jello heroines.  We are here to save the day!

This recipe does take some planning.  First you will need to make some marshmallows.  I think I have finally found the recipe that I like, I combined 2 different recipes and this is what I came up with.

Jello Flavored Marshmallows

1- 3oz package jello (I used strawberry)

2- envelopes unflavored gelatin

1/2 C.  Cold water

1 2/3 C. Sugar

2/3 C. light corn syrup

1/4 C. water

1/4 t. salt

1 T. Vanilla extract

Powdered Sugar

Line a pan with wax paper and spray with non-stick spray (I used an 8×11.5 pan but they were too tall, I had to cut the marshmallow hearts in half.  Next time I think I will use a 9×13)

In bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin and jello over 1/2 C. cold water.  Let soften for about 10 min.

Meanwhile, combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 C. water in a small saucepan, bring mixture to a rapid boil and let it boil for 1 min.  Pour syrup mixture onto gelatin and jello mixture.  Using the whisk attachment, beat on high speed.  Add salt and beat for 12 min.  After 12 mins., add vanilla and beat to incorporate.

Spray a rubber spatula with non-stick spray and pour into prepared pan using the rubber spatula.  Gently press some plastic wrap, sprayed with non-stick spray onto the top of the marshmallows to create a seal. Let mixture sit several hours or over night until cooled and set.

Lightly dust counter with powdered sugar and dump the marshmallows out.  Cut into pieces and dredge in powdered sugar.  I have found that scissors work the best for cutting the marshmallows, if you just want to make square marshmallows or dip a cookie cutter in powdered sugar and cut into shapes.  You may have to wash the cookie cutter every so often, when it gets too sticky.  Store in an airtight container.

Next you will need to make the cookies. I found the recipe on The Birthday Blog. The first pan I made, I cooked for 15 minutes like the recipe said to do.  I didn’t consider that the cookie they made was much bigger than the ones I made and when I pulled them out of the oven they were black.  So in my oven it only took 6 minutes for smaller cookies.

The next step is the easiest,  just melt some chocolate and sandwich the cookies and marshmallows together, and decorate any way you like.

Now go and have some jello s’mores joy!
