Here’s a parfait that’s perfect for a garden or patio party. Tea adds a wonderfully unexpected flavor to gelatin. And kids will have fun finding the cherry at the bottom.—Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
Here's a sweet treat your children or grandchildren will be more than happy to sink their teeth—and their cookin' fingers into. Contributed by Barbara Yoktede of Waukesha, Wiscosnin, it uses gelatin for the "rind" and "flesh"...and chocolate chips for "seeds"! "Our grandkids like to help make these almost as much as eating them," she reports.
This rich dessert only looks complicated. "It's quite easy to prepare," assures Irene Lee of Lawton, North Dakota, who notes you can garnish the heart any way you like. (To lend extra brightness for a shower, our kitchen crafters suggest using food coloring that matches the bridal colors.)
From Dorothy Reinhold of Malibu, California comes this delightful treat that saves calories and carbs by using sugar-free gelatin. This bright pink dessert is made special with layers of fresh blackberries.
From Marguerite Shaeffer comes this pretty pink gelatin mold bursting with raspberry flavor. "If you like, garnish it with more berries and a dollop of light whipped topping," she urges from her Sewell, New Jersey kitchen.
