you gotta try this recipe! Cheap and easy it will definitely be a regular dish in my home!
No different that jello with fruit in it. Topping ok. Just not special.
Nice, only change was to use blueberries instead of bananas. It is pretty too.
Delicious, easy, and you can be a little flexible with the fruits you add and flavor of jello you. It's true - the secret is that yummy frosting!
This was easy and just enough of a difference to your standard jello with fruit that it really stood out and got rave reviews. By no means a gourmet or exotic side or dessert, but a tasty, easy, and economical salad that is definitely worth trying. Instead of whipped topping I made whipped cream (fresh whipped cream is so easy and much better flavor, texture, and richness compared to whipped topping in a tub. My personal opinion). Seved it with a ham dinner and the sweetness was perfect compliment to the salty ham.
