Not Your Mother's Jell-o Mold

This baby has bite. It's a sangria jell-o, complete with yummy fruit. I got this recipe from the Kraft Foods website. They really have some great stuff. It turned out well, especially when you put Cool Whip on top. The only thing I would do different next time is possibly soak the fruit in brandy for an extra kick!

Sangria Jell-o (modified Sangria Party Cups from Kraft Foods)


1-1/2c boiling water

1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin

Ice cubes
1c dry red wine (or grape juice…uh LAME!)

8 fresh strawberries, quartered

1 can (11 oz.) mandarin orange segments, drained
1 cup seedless red grapes, halved


  1. Add boiling water to combined gelatin mixes in medium bowl; stir at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  2. Add enough ice cubes to wine to measure 1-1/2 cups.
  3. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice.
  4. Put it whatever container you want to serve it from and refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
Throw some Cool Whip on top and enjoy! It's a great summer dessert.
