Layered Christmas Gelatin
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
ahannifan: My mom made the gelatin, just as your's did, using two red layers, adding pecans, frozen sweetened strawberries (thawed, of course), in place of the whole-berry cranberry sauce, and used 16 oz of whipped topping mixed with the cream cheese, and NO gelatin, for the center layer. I'll be making this for Christmas this year, which I haven't done since Mom passed, 5 years ago!
Great for even kids birthdays red White n blue Fourth of July the White is the cream cheese
Not only a great Christmas dessert, but also a great Easter dessert! Making second 'batch' now. I've been using peach gelatin and either lemon or pineapple flavored gelatin ( yellow ) . Same great taste, just changing the colors for the Easter table! My family ( and friends ) all enjoy this great jello dish! Thanks for sharing.
We really liked this, and it was really nice looking with no mixing between the layers. My only thought for next time is to use a slightly larger dish. It filled an 11 x 7 dish to the very top, so it was difficult to get it in the fridge without spilling it. I love the idea mentioned by another reviewer to put it into individual cups.
I will use sugar-free jellos for this, for my diabetic son, he will LOVE it! Thank you so much!
One of my very favorite memories, my mom always made this, except she made two red layers (no green). She also added chopped pecans to the jello. So delicious!!
This was a family favorite for DECADES. The only difference was on the top layer we added mini marshmallows. We'd put a slice on a bed of lettuce and it not only was beautiful, it was doggone tasty!
This was a relatively easy recipe with great results! The middle layer is a nice balance for the sweeter top and bottom layers. I served it as a salad on a bed of red lettuce with a small dollop of whipped topping. It was as tasty as it was attractive. Thank you, Diane, for providing the recipe for a lovely Christmas salad.
This salad is really good. Even though it says Christmas in the title and Christmas colors, my family enjoys it so much I make it all year long.
I love holiday recipes that are festive looking and can be prepared ahead of time. This one is both! I didn't have strawberry jello so I substituted cherry. It was delicious!
