The Joy of Jello
Jello desserts have been around for more than 50 years, and it’s easy to see why they’ve remained popular. Instant gelatin and instant pudding make it easy to make delicious desserts that require no cooking at all. All you need is some hot water and a refrigerator to whip up pies, cheesecakes and layered desserts.
They do require time. It takes a while for all those layers to set. Make them while you’re doing other things around the house. They’ll be done before you know it.
Tips for Making Unicorn Jello Parfaits
- Once you know the basic recipe, you can substitute the flavors in this recipe with your favorite flavors and colors. Let your creativity flow.
- Use unicorn horns or unicorn-shaped cupcake toppers to make them really stand out. You can find cute ones on Etsy.
- When you put the finished parfaits in the refrigerator, cover each one with plastic wrap or foil. This prevents a hard top layer from forming.
