Reviews for Peach Angel Dessert
"Made it with raspberries. I'm waiting until Colorado peaches are in season this summer to make it that way. I think my grown kids would love this with mandarin oranges since they love mandarin orage salad with cottage cheese and whipped cream and marshmallows. I served it at a meeting at my house and had requests for seconds!! YUM!!!"
"Made this for mothers day was a huge hit, everyone loved it will definitely make it again maybe with different fruit. Very easy to make would not change a thing!"
"This was a big hit with all our guests. So easy to make! Now I have to make it for all functions. Love it!"
"I loved this recipe! For the fruit I used sliced strawberries and blueberries. It looked so patriotic that I'll make it again for the 4th of July. The recipe was very easy and tasted like strawberry shortcake - only better and looked fancier. I'll make it again using other fruits and jello flavors too."
"Made this using raspberry jell-o & frozen raspberries - bought a round angel food cake & cut it into 9 pieces. Wonderful!!My husband already asked me to make it again! 1/4 c is about the size of a small package of jell-o"
"this recipe is wonderful, I've made it many times, to cut back on the sugar I use splenda instead and sugar free gelatin (1/2 pkg or to taste) and sugar free cool whip. Everyone loved it."
"This looks delicious but not very healthy with all that sugar. How do you get 15 servings from a 9x13 pan????"
"Fruit flavored gelatin powder can be purchased in bulk and purchased on the web and in some specialty markets. I suspect that the terminology here was a way to avoid the brand name Jello."
