Cool, creamy and pretty as a picture, this luscious Italian dessert is elegant enough for the fanciest dinner party. Instead of using ramekins, pour into cocktail glasses and chill for a dressier look. Mariela Petroski - Helena, Montana
"Dinner guests are never too full for this light luscious dessert," says Cyndi Brinkhaus of South Coast Metro, California. "You can make it ahead to cut down on last-minute fuss. Plus, the graham cracker crust and pretty layers always draw raves."
Our Test Kitchen had fun creating these jolly gelatin jigglers—but not as much fun as your kids are likely to have helping to make them! Best of all, you can vary the cookie-cutout shapes (and gelatin flavors) to suit a year of seasonal holidays—from Halloween to Valentine’s Day.
Red grapes tucked into the center of a molded gelatin ring accent the tangy taste of lime, orange and pineapple in this colorful salad. "It's festive enough to serve guests and goes perfectly with ham or pork roast," writes Janice Pardue of Naples, Florida. "Plus, it's cool, tasty and easy to prepare!"
Pineapple, bananas and marshmallows are folded into orange Jell-O in this refreshing salad. Frosted with a creamy topping, pecans and coconut, this yummy dish is a real crowd-pleaser. I have been making it for years.

For a refreshing change from the usual birthday cake, flavor your party with this "fruitful" favorite! Since the treat is so easy to prepare, you'll likely want to serve it for other occasions...or even any day at all!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
