December 27, 2012


Jell-O strawberry parfaits from Grateful Heart Thankful Prayer are a celebratory treat. This individual dessert is so beautiful and easy to make, you'll want to prepare it for every festive occasion.  For a fun twist, substitute some of the water to make the Jell-O with champagne or sparkling wine.  Ring in 2013 with Jell-O strawberry parfaits.
