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!

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.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together. Roll dough into small balls and flatten with a glass dipped lightly in oil and then in sugar. Bake 6-8 minutes.

Here are questions related to Recipes Using Jello.
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.
If you want a lower calorie dessert, use cottage cheese, crushed pineapple and lime jello. You can also add the nuts if you want.
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! :-)
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.

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!
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!
