Strawberry Cream Jello Dessert Recipe

Strawberry Cream Jello Dessert

Jello Ring Dessert Mold
I picked up this pretty rose-topped vintage jello mold at a local thrift shop. It looked as if had never been used. I was excited because you never see these things any more and I remember my mom used to have these hanging on the wall growing up. My grandmother was also a big fan of jello and whipped cream desserts so I had to dust off this old recipe and give it a whirl. It came out tasting great and it was extremely easy to make. By the way, you can make this with any kind of fruit, not just strawberries.

1 (3.4oz) package strawberry jello
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cups cold water
1 1/2 cups whipped cream topping
2 cups frozen strawberries, thawed
Cooking spray

In a bowl, dissolve the strawberry jello in the boiling water; stir for 2 minutes. Then add the cold water. Chill in the fridge for about 1 hour then remove and beat in the whipped cream and 1 cup of the frozen strawberries with a mixer. Pour into your greased jello mold and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. To remove the jello from the mold, cut around the edge and the center ring with a butter knife then turn upside down and tap until it releases. Fill the center with remaining cup of strawberries and top with a dollop of whipped cream.

Serves: 8-10

If you don't already have one of these retro ring molds, I found a heart-shaped mold on amazon that would be cute for Valentine's Day. Pair with a gold charger for a fun retro look!
