I don't know what this is technically called but we've been making it in my family for years. My mom usually makes orange and puts mandarin oranges in it and on the top as a garnish.
I'm calling it Strawberry Fluff or Strawberry Mousse. I made it for our Church dinner yesterday. It is so easy and there are so many variations that can be made.
2 packages strawberry jello
2 cups hot water
2 cups cold water
1 container Cool Whip
Mix the jello as per the directions on the box.
Refrigerate and allow to set up completely.
Take the mixer to it and mix it all up. (if you get that thick layer on the bottom you want to remove that).
Add the Cool Whip and mix it thoroughly.
Put all the mixture in a large bowl (fancy if you're taking it somewhere) and refrigerate to let it set up completely again.
Here is a serving in a cute little bowl.
As I said you can make so many variations with the basic jello and whip cream base. First, you can use any kind of jello. Depending on the kind of jello you can then add cherries, oranges, marshmallows, etc. You can mix it throughout or put it on top for garnish.
Let me know if you try this or if you know the actual name of this fluffy creation.
