Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups boiling water

In a large bowl, add boiling water to cranberry gelatin; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Refrigerate 40-50 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Place cranberry sauce in a small bowl; stir to break up. Fold into gelatin mixture. Pour into an 8-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray; refrigerate 15-20 minutes longer or until set but not firm.

Heat and stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in eggnog and lime juice. Refrigerate 12-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

"We had this for Christmas. The cranberry layer was really good. The eggnog layer didn't have a lot of flavor. We have other cranberry gelatin recipes we prefer to this one."
