Hello everyone! Rachel here with my first Food Friday recipe for the Shabby Shoppe blog :)
I have a really quick and amazingly yummy jello dessert for you guys. It is always the first thing gone at family gatherings, and is just perfect for summer time! Seriously, this recipe could not be easier! It does have a bit of waiting time in between, and you do have to make sure you don’t forget about it (or you will just get jello that won’t be pourable into the crust). But, too early, and you will end up with mush. But it’s really not difficult, ANYONE can do this!!
2 jello packages (orange jello is our fave)
½ cup melted butter or margarine
¼ cup sugar
2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 tub of cool whip
Simple right?! So you want to prepare the Jello according to the instructions on the box and set in fridge until it is almost set. While that is in the fridge - mix butter, sugar & graham wafer crumbs together. Place in an 8×8 cake pan/baking dish, and bake for 6-8 minutes. Let it cool. When your jello is ready (you will know because it will be almost set but not completely… make sure it’s not runny either, as that will make your crust soggy), simply pour it over the crust. Place back in the fridge until totally set. When set, spread a layer of cool whip on, and then sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the top. Keep in fridge until ready to serve. See - simple & OH SO GOOD!
Although this recipe is almost easy enough to commit to memory, I’ve created this cute (4×6″) recipe card for you to use at home. You can click HERE to download, or simply click the image below. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today…and have a WONDERFUL weekend! We’ll see you back here on MONDAY for LOTW with SP!
