Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Dessert

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Dessert

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin was one of the combinations that I felt was an absolute necessity during my 30 days of gelatin. I love the combination of cranberries and raspberries. It’s really one of my favorite flavors. That’s why Cran-Raspberry Gelatin is my first new gelatin recipe in this series.

Cran Raspberry Gelatin

This is a simple recipe, which is probably why I chose it. It’s a variation on your grandmother’s canned fruit and gelatin desserts. When I was a child, fruit and gelatin was a common dessert, so I had to pay homage to those desserts during this series, so Cran-Raspberry Gelatin was born.

I put the cranberries and the rapsberry gelatin dessert mix into the pan I planned to use to serve the dessert. Then I added the boiling hot water and stirred to dissolve them.

  • Raspberry Gelatin Dessert Mix
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Canned Cranberries (whole berry or jellied

That’s it. The process is very simple, and the end result is delicious. Of course, we have already established that the combination of cranberries and raspberries is one of my favorites. I love this just as it is, but I also like to serve this Cran-Raspberry gelatin topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with fresh raspberries to make it even more special.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 (8 serving) box raspberry gelatin dessert mix (regular or sugar free) ($0.78)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can whole berry cranberries ($0.99)
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows ($0.43)
  • 3 cups water, divided.

Instructions
 

  • Bring two cups of water to a boil.
  • Mix gelatin powder and canned raspberries with boiling water, stirring until gelatin and cranberries are dissolved. (You can mix these together in the pan in which you intend to chill the gelatin.)
  • Add 1 cup cold water to the reapsberry gelatin/cranberry mixture.
  • Pour into a 11X7, or 9X9, inch pan. (Unless you have been mixing everything together into the pan; in which case, you can skip this step.)
  • Place in the refrigerator and allow to partially set. It should take about 15 – 20 minutes for it to begin to get thick.
  • Once gelatin has become thicker, stir to fully incorporate the cranberries throughout the gelatin. (You can skip this step, but all of the cranberries will be on the bottom of th pan.)
  • Top with 2 cups miniature marshmallows, and return to the fridge.
  • Allow the gelatin to rest in the refrigerator for 2 – 3 hours until it is fully congealed.
  • Cut into 12 equal squares and serve.
