About the book
Over 100 years and it's still jiggling and wiggling and creating fun for all ages!The 100 recipes in this unique cookbook celebrate all thing JELL-O®. All tested in the offical JELL-O® kitchens and accompanied with tempting photos. Because everyone loves JELL-O, there's something here for every taste. A special section for kids has cool things like Slushies, Chocolate Pudding Cats, Dirt Cups, and Lollipop Jiggles. Light Delights cater to today's health-conscious eater who appreciates the chance to indulge in a yummy dessert that's also fat-free and low-calorie. In a rush? Quick and Easy Razzle Dazzle Berry Mousse and Citrus Meringue take very little time and work--but provide plenty of pleasure. And of course there are special recipes for holidays and other occasions, like a Halloween Worm Cake and a Traditional Fruit Trifle.
I think if you asked anybody to look back on their childhood and name a cherished dessert, JELL-O will have been involved 9 times out of 10. I remember at our house that my mom was a busy working woman so when we would have JELL-O it was usually just plain and cut up into squares but we loved it that way. It was a real treat the times that she thought to cut up bananas and place them inside of the JELL-O mold! That was definitely one of my favorite treats as a kid. The Magic of JELL-O has a wide array of recipes. There are easy recipes for the novice cook or too busy to cook person and intricate recipes that look fabulous for the person who loves to be in the kitchen and show off their beautiful work. There are healthier recipes and more indulgent recipes. There is truly something for everyone. I can't wait to try to make some of these things to put in my kids' lunchboxes or surprise them with after school as an indulgent treat. I think they would especially enjoy the chocolate pudding cats and lollipop jiggles. I recommend this book to anyone with a sense of nostalgia or who just enjoys JELL-O recipes!
