Valentine Dessert

Valentine Dessert ~ quick and easy to make ! Pantry ingredients !  #ValentineDessert #ValentinesDay #Dessert

This is one of the easiest dessert recipes to make and I think it looks rather impressive, especially since it is decorated for, and to serve as a Valentine Dessert .

I made some about two years ago as part of a dessert table for a birthday party, but have not made it again since. It is an inexpensive, all pantry ingredients recipe, soooo, if you make this, you won't only have a very pretty and romantic looking dessert, but also have some extra cash to spend on a gift for your Valentine ;-)
**This is the only tricky part and it really is not even that difficult.
Prepare the Jello, let it cool a few minutes if you are not using heat proof serving glasses.
Pour some Jello into the glass and place it tilted in a suitable container - chill until set.

Right, here is the full recipe:

2 - 4 Servings, depending on your glass sizes

1 Box Strawberry Jello + Boiling Water as per the instructions on the box
1 Box Strawberry Instant Pudding + Milk as per the instructions on the box  {I used Strawberry in half the glasses and Vanilla in the other glasses}
Whipped Cream, lightly sweetened
Sprinkles/Pink Sugar, to decorate
Red Glace Cherries, one per glass

1.) Prepare the Jello as per the instructions on the box - let cool a few minutes and pour some into serving glasses - place the glasses in a container, tilted as above**chill until set.
2.) Once the Jello has set, prepare the Instant Pudding as per the instructions on the box - chill 2 - 3 minutes and spoon into the serving glasses.
3.) Spoon or pipe over Whipped Cream, decorate with Sprinkles and/or Pink Sugar and top with a Red Glace Cherry.

Chill until ready to serve.
