This was such a disappointment! The gelatin never was able to make the egg nog “light and fluffy,” nor did 3/4 cup of whipped cream. I do recommend whisking the gelatin to help it blend. I wish the recipe gave estimates for time (such as how long to heat on the stove or how long in the fridge). Something just didn’t add up. I ended up adding the rest of the whipped cream and tried to make a trifle with pound cake.
