Fancy Berry Jello

My grandma brings Jello to every family occasion.  Be it picnic, party, birthday, whatever, you name it, there's Jello at it.  So, of course, there was yummy Jello at Easter.  But this isn't just any Jello... this is special Jello.

You see, because the Jello has strawberries inside the actual substance, everyone thinks that it is strawberry Jello.  But here's the tricky part: you don't use strawberry Jello in the recipe!  Nope, it's something else, and you're going to have to scroll down to find out.

But since the Jello mixes it's berry flavors, I can't very well call it "strawberry Jello!"  So we will entitle this dish Fancy Berry Jello.  It's better that way.

Side note: Just like most other things that we ate last week for Easter, I would not eat this as a child.  Do we sense a common theme?

This recipe is a cinch, so here you go...

What you'll need:
  • 2 boxes of raspberry Jello (that's the secret trick!)
  • 2 containers of frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
(Easy, right?)

How to make it:

1.  Start preparing the Jello with hot water as package directs, but DO NOT add the cold water.

2.  Instead, add in the thawed strawberries, juice and all.

3.  Refrigerate according to package instructions.


5.  Look at your delicious creation!

So there you have it, the super-secret method of making the best ever fancy berry Jello.  Your friends and family are going to think you're classically trained.  Well, maybe not classically trained, but super creative.  Bring it to a picnic that you're definitely going to have in the (hopefully) warm upcoming weather.

There are still two recipes to go!  Contain your excitement for the delicious, amazing desserts to come!


  1. Haha, you're right...that's so easy. I always enjoy reading your recipes!

  2. Thanks Abby! I was so surprised when my mom sent me the recipe... all this time and I've never known!
