1 (16 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce) package
strawberry flavored Jell-O®
3 (15.25 ounce) cans
fruit cocktail, drained
1 (11 ounce) can
mandarin oranges, drained
This is a "night before" recipe. If it is not chilled overnight, the dessert will not have a fluffy texture. Also, be sure to FOLD the jello and fruit into the whipped topping. DO NOT STIR !!!
I made this last night for dessert for my family and nobody liked it. It turned out so thick like glue. I thought mabey I did something wrong, but I've looked over the recipe time and again and can't see where I went wrong. It's pretty bad when the kids won't eat it.
Would like to try this, but have to ask what maybe a dumb question. Do I make the strawberry gelatin or just stir in the crystals? 2 questions - do I halve the grapes? I'm cooking challenged!
I made this last week - my kids didnt like it! Good! More for me & Daddy. I am making it again today. The recipe is rather large, but it only lasted two days between my husband & I. This time I will omit the mandarin oranges. Hubby says they taste bitter. (he still ate them!) I love this stuff! Its just like the stuff you can get in the supermarket deli (only better). Been looking for this recipe for a long time. Now I got my hands on it. Thank You!
I thought this was absolutely horrible, as did everyone else in my family. The jello did not mix into the cool whip so it just kind of "beaded" on top of the whipped topping. It was really not edible. To each his own I guess.
This was really good, but if you are only preparing it for a couple people, reduce the amounts becuase it serves many!
I was looking for easy recipes to make and yet very good. This one is wonderful and really keeps it shape for a few days. I did not have grapes so just kept them out. It was very good anyway. I will be making this recipe again this weekend for our family reunion. Thank you so much for sharing it.
I made this dessert for my bf's birthday and he loved it! So did his friends who had more than one helping. I accidently only bought 8oz of cool whip so I had to cut the recipe in half...next time I make it I'll be sure to have all the ingredients. Also left out the grapes but it still tasted wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
