Reviews for Berry Gelatin Mold
"I was looking for a jello mold recipe to try and this was the one I picked. It took over 3 hours to partially set to add the fruit. My jello book said you should be able to drag a spoon through it and the line should stay visible. I took it to work and everyone loved it. It is beautiful as well."
"Wonderful recipe. Enjoyed the zip the club soda gives it. It does seem to take longer than the 45 minutes to get it to partially set, but maybe that is just my refrigerator. Just make sure to allow enough time."
"WOW! My family loved this recipe! It's easy and fast to make, and tastes just terrific! I'll make this one again soon."
"Super dish on a hot summer day. After chilled and set, to serve outside, I turned it over in a plastc pan, set the pan in a larger pie pan and surrounded the pan with ice cubes to keep it chilled and solic. Was a sucessful favorite, especially with the children."
"I made this for Thanksgiving and my husband loves it so much we also had it for Christmas dinner!!"
