In addition to the mainstay of Jello salads and molds, Jello can be used in a variety of recipes. This page contains recipes using Jello.
I make this drink a lot, it is a calming comfort drink. You heat a mug of water (1 minute 45 seconds on high power), then mix in half a box of any 3 ounce gelatin dessert mix. If you take a sip of the hot drink, you will see how nice it is. This is a popular treat at our house, especially when people feel they need something nice to drink on a nice cool evening.
You can also add Twizzler strawberry candy and dip them in the drink and then in the other half of the box of powder gelatin that is left. The Twizzler candy takes a rather distinct shape when taken out of the hot drink and put into the Jello powder. Besides the distinct shape, it leaves little round balls of powder. This happens after the Twizzler is stirred around in the powder after having been in the hot drink. You can then eat the Twizzler candy with yummy powder on the end of it.
I did read that gelatin has properties that boost the immune system, but I just like it for the fact that it is a wonderful drink.

Jello gives these cookies their flavor and their color. There are so many flavors of Jello at the store, so the possibilities are endless.
Put one small box of any flavored gelatin into a blender. Add 1 cup of boiling water and blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Add 1-1/2 cup crushed ice and blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour into a small bowl and set in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. This dessert treat tastes like sherbet. Enjoy!

Does anyone know of a recipe with orange Jello, crushed pineapple, and either whole eggs, separated or egg whites? I know this is an old recipe, maybe from the 30's or 40's. My Mom had it handwritten and it was called "Heavenly Delight". It was made in an 8x8 pan and I believe you cooked it on top of the stove and then mixed it together. It was fluffy and was an interesting combination. My Mom can't find the recipe either. Thanks for any help.

Was it more of a dessert, or a salad...or something else? Were there any other ingredients that you can remember? I've got some old cookbooks I'll dig through, and my mom has an old (60s-70s) Jello cookbook, so maybe it's in there. I'll keep ya posted!
This was a dessert. I am going to see if the one that separates is it and maybe you just have to mix it together more to get it the way I remember. Thanks for all the help.
Does anyone have a recipe for a jello dessert called Lime Delight? I got it from a dear friend along time ago and I seem to have lost it.
Go to www.google.com & type in "Lime Delight Jello recipe" & you'll have a lot of links to check out. Hope you find the one that's just right! :)
Lime Jello Delight
1 (6 oz.) pkg. lime Jello
1 lg. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 pt. whipping cream (heavy)
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 can chunky pineapple, drained (reserve liquid)
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 jar maraschino cherries (chop most, cut 10 in half)
Dissolve Jello with boiling water according to package directions, cut cream cheese into chunks, place in warm Jello water, stir with hand mixer. When melted, add pineapple juice and cold water to equal 2 cups. Stir. Slice cherries, chop walnuts. When almost set (firm but soft) whip whipping cream, fold in whipping cream, 3/4 cup of nuts, pineapple and chopped cherries. Sprinkle remaining nuts on top and place cherry halves on the top to decorate.
This is a great holiday salad!

I am going to make these jello worms. Do you think I should put it in the refrigerator to let it set? It has the kind of whipping cream you buy in a carton so I am thinking yes to the refrigerator, but it doesn't say in the recipe.
You basically add these things together, cool and then pour into a lot of straws in a glass with a rubber band around them.
2 packs Raspberry Jello
1 package unflavored gelatine
3/4 cup whipping cream
3 cups boiling water
100 flexible straws
or enough to fill your tall cup or container
If anyone has made these, how did they turn out also?
It is from an Australian Business Directory called WHOit. (http://thewhoot.com.au/business-directory)
I don't want to leave out the whipping cream in the jello and set it out if it would be dangerous as far as health. I am not sure what the recipe means when it reads "set out until firm".
By Robyn from TN
I made this recipe - with the whipping cream - and it turned out great! You must use the "flexible" straws because they look so real when the Jello-O is squeezed out. It IS time-consuming to squeeze out all the straws, but SO worth the effort. My kiddos were squealing!
Cut into one inch squares. Makes about 100 1" squares. You can cut recipe down. Great and easy for your kids to help you with, especially on rainy days!

Dissolve each flavor gelatin in 1 1 /2 cups water. Let set and cut in small squares. Dissolve Knox gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup hot pineapple juice; stir and let cool. Fold in Cool Whip, gelatin and vanilla.
I am looking for a lime Jello recipe that has Jello, cottage cheese, celery, pimento, and maybe nuts and onions, or green peppers. It is served as a accompaniment to ham.
By Linda from BG, KY
I've had this before and it is delicious. Just can't for the life of me remember when or where. :-( Hope someone else can post a recipe or link as now I'm craving it, big time! :-)
Pears and colorful gelatin can make an Independence Day dessert!
