I ate a lot of Jello growing up. At my grandmother’s house we’d either have Jello or apple sauce as a snack and in elementary school I would take Jello single serving cups in my lunch box. I still love the stuff, but virtually never eat it. I got this really cool Snowman cake pan last Christmas and thought it would make the perfect Jello mold.
Pat really hates Jello and he was so disgusted when I suggested that I make this for a holiday party that I was unsure if people would actually eat it, but they did. I think there is something very nostalgic about it, and also the taste and texture is so different than any other dessert. You certainly don’t need a snowman pan to make this. The original recipe is made in a standard 9 x 13 pan.
For the recipe visit The Food Librarian. She’s a Jello expert! If you plan on making this mold definitely start the day before. Each Jello needs several hours to get firm.
