Reviews for No-Bake Strawberry Dessert
"Just a question. Do I use the juice from the thawed berries or do I discard it? I am reading the comments about the "globs". If I were to use fresh strawberries, would I need to add water to the gelatin mix? Sounds wonderful and I want to make ASAP. Thanks to anyone who can clarify this for me. Have to rate to post this comment. I am sure it will be five stars based on previous reviews."
"Dessert was a HUGE hit for my 4th of July party! Made a few "less healthy" changes per husband's request - used 13.5 oz. round angel food cake (couldn't find loaf), 2 small pkgs regular strawberry jello, 2 cups half & half instead of 1% milk, 1 small pkg vanilla inst. pudding. Will make again!!"
"Easy and taste great! Everyone asks for the recipe at our gatherings and are especially surprised at how easy it is to make."
