Gelatin mix is a favorite convenience pantry staple in our house. We use it to make quick desserts, including parfaits, trifles, and fruit salads. Whip gelatin mix in sugar cookie dough, frosting, and icing for extra flavor and color. Make frosted grapes, meringue cookies, fruit-flavored roll-ups, and marshmallows with it, too! This sampler provides you with a flavor and color for any occasion! Save 5% when ordering the sampler pack versus ordering each pound of gelatin mix individually. Includes one pound bulk bag each of the following flavors:
Recipe: Party Gelatin Shots
Alcohol imbibed cups of fruity flavored gelatin. Easy to serve at a party and packs a punch!
1 pound gelatin mix
2 1/3 cups boiling water OR fruit juice
2 1/3 cups well-chilled liquor (see Notes, below)
~ In a large bowl or pitcher, stir together gelatin mix and boiling water until gelatin has dissolved.
~ Stir in chilled liquor.
~ Pour mixture into 2 oz. plastic cups or wax-lined paper bathroom cups (Dixie cups).
~ Place cups on a baking pan for easy transport.
~ Chill until set, about 1 hour.
Notes: Chill bottle in the freezer for 1 hour before preparing shots. Traditionally, vodka is used for jello shots, as it has the most neutral flavor. However, we prefer to use one of the 99 Schnapps varieties (99 Apples, 99 Bananas, 99 Blackberries, 99 Cherries, 99 Coconut, 99 Grapes, 99 Oranges, 99 Peaches, 99 Watermelon ); these boast a high proof and lots of flavor.
Recipe: Ice Box Pie in a Snap!
Cool, creamy, and tangy dessert can be whipped up fast!
8 oz. block cream cheese (low-fat okay)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbls. gelatin mix
juice of 1/2 a lemon OR 1 tsp. lemon juice powder
12 oz. tub whipped cream topping, thawed, divided
9" prepared pie crust (see Notes, below)
~ In a mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, gelatin mix, and lemon juice/juice powder.
~ Gently fold in approx. 2/3 of the whipped cream topping.
~ Fold the mixture into the pie crust and chill for at least 1 hour.
~ Spread remaining whipped cream topping over the pie before serving.
Notes: I like to use a graham cracker pie crust or a shortbread cookie crust, but any ready-to-use pie crust will work.
