One of my most favorite desserts ever. This takes me way back to when Grandma would make this for me when I was a kid. It never really lost it's magic for me. EDITED: I now make this "lighter", using sugar free gelatin and either sugar free whipped topping or "light" whipped topping. It tastes exactly the same but with less calories.


My mother made this for me when I had all of my wisdom teeth removed, but now I crave it all the time! It's super-easy and tasty. I love it. We refer to it as "fluffy jell-o" :)


I find it funny to rate jello five stars! But, for what it is, it's a great recipe. I used strawberry jello and prepared in individual serving sundae dishes. My boyfriend wolfed his first one down, got another one out of the fridge, and ate that one before I had finished my first. Alas, five stars it is!
