I was recently looking for a salad or fruity dessert that I thought my kids would like to eat. I came across this JELL-O recipe on Allrecipes.com that looked interesting. I usually look for recipes that have high ratings AND a lot of reviews. This one only had 3 reviews, but it's JELL-O, so I was thinking too much couldn't go wrong! The kids did enjoy it as well as a few adults! :-)
The recipe says to use a "6 cup mold". I didn't measure mine, but it is clearly more than 6 cups. This produced a very short mold. So, for a prettier presentation, I would suggest trying to find a mold closer to the 6 cup one called for. I also sprayed the mold with cooking spray to make it easier to un-mold.
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 pkg (8oz) Strawberry JELL-O (this is the large package)
1 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 (8oz) carton whipped topping, thawed and divided
1. Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in a large bowl for 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Place strawberries in a 6 cup mold.
2. Meanwhile, refrigerate remaining gelatin 30 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Add 2 cups of the whipped topping. Stir with wire whisk until well blended. Spoon over gelatin layer in mold.
