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.
After a hearty meal, this light, refreshing pie hits the spot. Chocolate and mint are definitely meant for each other. I make this festive treat at Christmas and whenever my son comes to visit. He loves it with sweet cherries on top.
"Here is a speedy candy recipe that can be varied depending on the type of fruit or nuts you have on hand," sends Marcia Snyder of Grand Junction, Colorado. "Since we have a walnut tree, I use walnuts, but pecans could also be substituted as well as dried cherries for the cranberries."
This recipe, given to me by a friend years ago, was one I used to save just for Christmas. But friends and family began to request them regularly, and now I buy extra candied cherries when they go on sale in December so I can make the treats all year long.
This easy-to-make dessert is one of my favorites to serve. It looks so elegant, and the velvety texture, with a subtle hint of orange, is a perfect ending to any meal.

Quick but elegant makes an ideal recipe for me. I place all the fixings for the cordials on a tray and let each person make their own. It's fun and saves me even more time. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan
With the hint of rum plus the nuts and coconut, these bars are like a trip to the islands. I served them to my family and at my work and church, and I always hear murmurs of appreciation. —Jennifer Neckermann, Wentzville, Missouri
