because every dessert is a little decadent

Merry Christmas Gelatin Salad

You might associate Christmas cake, brandy snaps or other Christmas traditional recipes with Christmas time, rather than gelatin, but this recipe will not disappoint the family. Three flavors of gelatin are used, which also give you three festive colors. You can use strawberry gelatin, raspberry gelatin, cranberry gelatin or cherry gelatin to make the red layer.

Marshmallows, cream cheese, pineapple, and cream are also added to make this gelatin with cream cheese recipe very creamy and tasty. Each gelatin flavor is allowed to set before the next is poured on top, resulting in a striped Christmas dessert, which might become one of your favorite Christmas recipes in years to come. You can also make festive gelatin salad recipes to accompany your main meal or for appetizers.

In fact, this delicious gelatin recipe is too good to make just once a year so, if you like it, you can use any three colors of gelatin and make this dessert again. What about red, blue, and white gelatin for a patriotic gelatin recipe?
