The frozen snack, made from fruity gelatin and powdered soft drink mix, can be whipped up in no time, according to Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. "Youngsters just love them. I know ours did when they were little," she adds. "And though the kids are grown, they still request the treats when they visit."
