5 Quick and Easy Jello Treats

July 2, 2011

Ah Jello, who doesn't love it? What makes it so great, is that for just a few cents, you can make a sweet dessert treat, your kids will love. Jello makes a fun ingredient for quite a few desserts that are not always so jiggly. I used to live near an Amish bulk food store, where you could buy jello (labeled flavored gelatin of course) by the sackful. I admit, although I never need to have quite that much jello on hand, it was tempting.

Check out these 5 ways to use jello in dessert making. I bet you have a box or two lurking in your cupboard right now! 

Coffee Jello
MMMM, coffee. That was all I needed to hear. The idea of adding a dollop of whipped cream to coffee flavored cubes, well that just puts it over the top, in my opinion. 

Pineapple Ambrosia Salad
To be honest, my husband LOVES this sort of thing. Not my favorite. It isn't the taste. It's me, all me.

 Red -White -Blue Jello
I wish I had time to make this tonight! Perfect for the 4th, what a cool jello treat!

Swamp Slime
As the mother to 4 sons, this actually seems like a good dessert. 

Rainbow Cake 
This concept is deceptively simple. Cake + jello = beautiful dessert.  I had to include the widget so you could see the beautiful results.
