Scarface Jello for Halloween
This Jello Jack-o-Lantern was adapted from a Pillsbury recipe that I have always enjoyed.
By using fat free plain yogurt, the dessert is relatively healthy, and very yummy.
|Without the candy, this would make a lovely addition to any table.|
|Yogurt is not pictured, because I forgot.|
Linking to some of these great sites.
1 (6-oz.) pkg. orange flavor Jello
2 cups boiling water
1 3/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
(or vanilla, if you want it to be sweeter)
1 (15-oz.) can mandarin orange segments, well drained
1 (8-oz.) can pineapple tidbits in unsweetened juice, well drained
Gum drops, and/or chocolate bars to decorate
In a medium bowl, combine Jello and boiling water, stir until Jello is dissolved.
With wire whisk, beat in yogurt until mixture is smooth.
Refrigerate 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or just until slightly thickened.
Stir in orange segments and pineapple. Pour into a 9 1/2 or 10-inch deep-dish glass pie pan.
I used a regular pie plate, and a cereal bowl for the extra.
Do not push plastic wrap into the Jello, unless you want your jack-o-lantern to look like she slept on creased sheets, or was in a knife fight. The bubbles resemble acne scars on my poor pumpkin. They made me love her just a little bit more.
Just before serving, arrange candies on Jello
to resemble a jack-o'-lantern.
