12 Recipes of Christmas, continued

14 Dec

I know what you’re thinking, what’s Christmas without Jell-O? Everyone has some, somewhere, maybe in the back of the beyond of your kitchen cupboard behind the baked beans and Bisquik. And we love our Jell-O even though we don’t show it the respect it deserves. Jell-O is a simple, steadfast, not overly bright friend who never lets us down. This holiday season is the time to brush off those old boxes and make our little friend proud.

Our next recipe…



Jellied Holiday Nog

2 packages (3 oz. each) or 1 package (6 oz) Jell-O Lemon Gelatin

2 packages (3 1/4 oz. each) Jell-O Vanilla Pudding and Pie Filling

2 tablespoons sugar

5 cups water

2 envelopes Dream Whip Whipped Topping Mix

1 teaspoon rum extract

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine gelatin, pudding mix and sugar in a large saucepan. Add water. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat. Chill until thickened.

Prepare whipped topping mix as directed on package. Thoroughly blend prepared whipped topping, rum extract, vanilla and nutmeg into the thickened pudding mixture. Pour into a large serving bowl or punch bowl. Chill until firm – at least 4 hours or overnight. Garnish with cherries and mint leaves. Makes about 8 cups or 16 servings.
