"Melt in your mouth DELICIOUS! The taste buds loved this dessert big time. The only change I made was to use fresh raspberries and raspberry gelatine as that's what I had on hand. A keeper for sure and will definitely make it again and again!"

"This is delicious and I'll be making it again. I used raspberries and raspberry gelatin and substituted whipped cream for the whipped topping, after which success I won't hesitate to try other fruits as well. Next time I'll try leaving out the sweetened condensed milk or using half as much. Never thought I'd say it, but the milk makes it almost TOO rich and sweet! Nevertheless this is a recipe I'd pass on to friends."

"Oh my goodness! I made this tonight.I am going to serve it Saturday when my card group meet. I did taste the cream cheese mixture and it was good. I can not waite to eat it once it had time to set up.

I used banana/strawberry gelatin since I had it here. With this recipe, you can use any kind of fruit and get gelatin to go along with it. I want to do a fresh peach when they are in season. This is a KEEPER! Thanks to who ever sent this in."
