Easy Easter Mosaic Gelatin
Estimated Preparation Time:
10 minutes (plus at least 5 hours chilling time)
Cook Time: none
Featuring easter colours and a light lemon flavour, this gelatin
mold will complement any holiday diner.
2 3 ounce packages sugar-free lemon gelatin
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup nondairy whipped topping
1 1/2 cups multicoloured, fruit-flavoured miniature marshmallows
Lightly spray a 4 cup gelatin mold with cooking spray; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups boiling water with
both packages of lemon gelatin; stir 1 minute. Add 3/4 cup cold
water and stire another 2 minutes, or until the gelatin is
completely dissolved. Refrigerate in the mixing bowl for 2 hours,
or until gelatin becomes thick but not set. (Test by putting 1
miniature marshmallow into the bowl and stirring it in. If the
marshmallow doesn't float, the gelatin is ready.)
Stir in the miniature marshmallows, then spoon the mixture into
the prepared gelatin mold. Refrigerate at least 3 more hours, or
until gelatin is completely set and firm.
To unmold the gelatin, dip the pan into a large bowlful of warm
water until the water comes halfway up the sides of the mold;
hold 20 seconds. (Be careful not to get any water onto the
gelatin.) Remove the mold from water and place a serving platter
over the top of the mold, then invert the gelatin onto the plate.
Shake gently to loosen the gelatin from the mold, then invert the
gelatin onto the plate. Shake gently to loosen the gelatin from
the mold. If it doesn't come out easily, repeat the dipping
process for another 10 seconds and try again. Cut gelatin into
six portions and serve.
