Rhubarb Rumble Pie or Bars

"This is the best cold rhubarb dessert recipe I've found, and it's so easy. I have to give thanks to Nikki for adapting this recipe! Even my son who dislikes rhubarb loves this one. Adapted from the diabetic/diet version (Rhubarb Rumble). I like to make this in an 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass pan, making my own graham cracker crust. The addition of fresh strawberries adds an extra layer of lusciousness. It ends up being a very PRETTY IN PINK dessert. The hard part is waiting for it to chill."

  1. Combine rhubarb and strawberry gelatin mix in a large microwave-safe glass bowl. Cover bowl and cook rhubarb mixture on high until rhubarb is very soft and has cooked down into threads, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir every 2 minutes. Let mixture cool.
  2. Stir skim milk and vanilla pudding mix in a bowl until moistened. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until thickened, about 2 minutes; stir cooled rhubarb mixture into pudding mixture.
  3. Spread strawberry slices into the bottom of prepared graham cracker crust. Spoon rhubarb pudding mixture over strawberries and refrigerate dessert until firm, about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Any of the following pan sizes would work if making own crust: 6-cup baking dish or pan; 13x10-inch rectangular pan; 13x8-inch rectangular pan; 9x12-inch rectangular pan; 9x9-inch square pan; deep-dish or regular 10-inch round pie plate.



Sprinkle/pour Jello PACKET on top of cut Rhubarb **DO NOT make jello per packet instructions** The Rhubarb has all the water in it you will need!! Stir frequently per instruction.

It sounded like a good idea, but too many things went wrong for me... like, I never noticed that it called for a "1 oz." pkg. of vanilla pudding mix. OK. I'm not sure if that is supposed to be 3...

I'll start by saying the taste is great. The problem I had was with the directions. I wound up with strawberry rhubarb soup in a graham cracker pie crust. I cooked the rhubarb with the Jello ...

YUMMY!! Cooked my rhubarb and gelatin on the stove. If you use 2 cups of sliced strawberries the rhubarb filling will not fit in the store bought graham cracker crust. Will make my own crust ...
