Jello Makes A Great Quick Dessert!
If you need a quick dessert and don’t have a thing on hand, make some Jello. (Most everyone has a supply of Jello.)
If you need it fast instead of adding the cup of cold water like the package says, add 1 cup of ice cubes and stir for a minute or two, dissolving the ice. The ice cubes won’t completely dissolve but that’s okay. Just keep stirring until the Jello thickens a little.Remove any little bits of ice then place the Jello in the refrigerator so it can finish gelling. The Jello thickens twice as fast as when you use just water and will be ready by the time the meal is over.
Don’t toss the ice cube pieces that are left over. Give them to the kids. My brother and I would fight over who got the ice from the Jello because the ice tasted so good with that little bit of Jello coated on it.
Serve with whipped topping or with cut fresh fruit on top. Even a simple cookie would be a nice addition.
Also, if you need something easy and different for your school or church bake sale, make different colored Jello and put it in paper cups to sell.
Another cool Jello treat is to replace half of the water with ice cream then let it set up. Oh yum.
With Jello the possibilities are endless.
