"Perfect for Valentine's Day or a girls' party, these tasty sweets are sensational and very quick. Cranberry gelatin makes them sooooo pink! You can also press the warm mixture into heart-shaped molds if you're fast enough."

These are pink and I have 2 daughters--need I say more? I did have to substitute strawberry Jell-O for the cranberry, but it worked well. The mini M&M's didn't stay whole when added, so I think I would either leave them out or try the regular-sized ones next time. This is a fun treat!

My kids loved this, so did her class it was a big hit for snack time. I'll be making this again.

This is an awesome snack, treat or breakfast bar! I did not have the exact things called for so I used cherry Jello, and instead of candy I sprinkled mini chocolate chips over the top when done and pressed them in. Cherry-chocolate bars! I even used organic cereal to counteract my guilt about the food coloring in the Jello, lol. Loved this!
