I know how you feel. I still have some strawberry jello sitting in the back of our cupboard & I know that it needs to be used before it gets old. After reading this discussion I've decided I'm going to put the jello that I have to good use this weekend. I know that in the past I have used jello for creating a lot of different recipes. I know that there are quite a few that I have loved trying. And that my other half & me would have for dessert each night. I included three recipes that I have made in the past that I found are rather simple to make. And that are rather tasty to eat as well. I hope if you try them out you enjoy them as much as we do! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx "Jello Layer Dessert." Ingredients are as follows: - 6 ounces of gelatin, any flavor your heart desires - 4 cups of frozen cool whip - 3 cups of boiling water - sliced fruit if desired, but is optional Directions are as follows: - Firstly dissolve the gelatin in water. - Then whisk in the cool whip, make sure to reserve 1 cup though to top in each dish that you are deciding to serve. - Then pour in to individual dishes. And chill for 30 - 60 minutes, & then top with sliced fresh fruit if desired & the remaining cool whip. Serve & ENJOY! "Mini Mold Gelatin." Ingredients are as follows: - 1 1/2 cups of cold water - 1 1/2 cups of boiling water - 1 package of strawberry flavored gelatin - 1 package of cream cheese, softened Directions are as follows: - Firstly spray the multi-bundit muffin pan with cooking spray. Then pour the boiling water on the gelatin in a medium bowl, then stir until the gelatin has been dissolved. and stir in the cold water. - Then beat the cream cheese in to the gelatin mixture, make sure to use a wire whisk, & beat until smooth. Or if you don't have a wire whisk you can use a blender. Just throw the gelatin mixture, along with the cream cheese in a blender. And cover & blend on medium speed until smooth. Then pour this mixture in to muffin pan cups. And cover & refrigerate for about 1 hour or at least until firm. - Then unmold the gelatin on to a tray. And lift each mold with a spatula on to plates. Serve with whipped topping or just serve & ENJOY! You can also add some fruit such as peaches around the edges or on top if you'd like to! ENJOY this unique treat! . . "Jello Delight."

The fruit juice in the can should fill the liquid measurer up to about 2/3 of a cup full. After this had been done.. Add the cold water in to the measuring cup so that it equals to a cup.
