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.
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.

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.
Funny, I was just telling someone this morning about this wonderful dessert my grandmother made, jello with egg whites whipped in, with a custard made from the yolks over the top. The tip in one of these recipes about adding the whites to the thickened jello before whipping might be the trick I was looking for. Good luck with yours!
Sprinkle crumbs onto bottom of 8- or 9-inch springform pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Add boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Cool 5 minutes. Pour into blender. Add cheeses; blend well. Return to bowl. Gently stir in Cool Whip and pour into springform pan. Smooth top.
Refrigerate 4 hours or until set. Loosen cheesecake from side of pan before removing rim.

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.
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.
If you want a lower calorie dessert, use cottage cheese, crushed pineapple and lime jello. You can also add the nuts if you want.
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!

Jello gives these cookies their flavor and their color. There are so many flavors of Jello at the store, so the possibilities are endless.
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".

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!
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.

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! :-)
This is a great holiday salad!

Great and easy for your kids to help you with, especially on rainy days! In large bowl combine Knox and Jello. Mix very well. Add boiling water and stir well until Gelatin is completely dissolved.
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.
Pears and colorful gelatin can make an Independence Day dessert!
Boil brown sugar, hot water and maple flavoring together for 10 minutes. Soak plain gelatin in cold water a few minutes. Then mix with hot syrup. Pour in pan; let set until firm.
Put in jello and cream cheese in mixer with cool whip and a drop of lemon flavor or lemon instant pudding...
