Jello Dessert

So many types of Jello. So little time. The varieties are unbelievable. Amazing how the flavors of Jello can change in the last few decades. There are many types of Jello Desserts. You can go to for her families favorite Pretzel Jello Dessert concoction.

Here is my Jello Dessert. I made it last night so it would have plenty of set up time. If you are daring, give it a try.

No Cook Jello Creamy Graham Dessert

For the crust

1 1/2 cups crushed Graham crackers
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 cup fine grated coconut
1/8 cup ground pecans
1 Tbs Hersheys Cocoa powder
1/3 cup melted butter

Creamy Layer

12 oz Neufectel Cream Cheese softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbs milk
1 cup Low fat Cool Whip

Jello Layer

Cherry Jello
2 cups hot water
1 1/2 cup cold water
2 cups cleaned and cut strawberries

In a bowl mix the crust ingredients. Pat into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Set aside. In a mixing bowl whip cream cheese until fluffy. Add sugar and mix. Add vanilla and milk. Whip again until combined. Fold in the Cool Whip. Spoon Creamy mix onto crust layer evenly. Cover the 9 x 13 with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator. Put hot water in a large bowl. Add jello and stir. Let cool a bit. Add cold water and stir. Put the jello bowl in the refrigerator too it needs to set a bit. In one to two hours remove jello and the 9 x 13 from the 'frige. Spoon half of the jello mixture on top of the creamy layer. Artistically place strawberry pieces on jello layer. Pour remaining Jello on top of the berries making sure they are covered. Cover dessert and put it back in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to serve top with a little Cool Whip. Enjoy!
