Magic Mousse Jello


This recipe holds a lot of nostalgia for me.  I remember making Magic Mousse when I was young.  I thought it was the most wonderful and elegant dessert there ever was! 😉   When I recently came across the recipe, it brought back fun memories.  {Anybody else remember this Jello treat?}

I wanted to share it so you’re kids could enjoy the magic too!  Wouldn’t this be a fun treat for them to make on Valentine’s Day ?  It’s quick and easy, yet they’ll be so thrilled to pour it into fancy glass and see the mousse form at the top!   I hope they will be as excited to serve it as I was.   Have fun with this one!

Magic Mousse Jello


3 cups  boiling water

1 large package (8-servings) Jello Strawberry Flavor Gelatin

1 carton (16 oz) Cool Whip


Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl for at least 2 minutes or until completely dissolved.  Add whipped topping to hot gelatin, stir with wire whisk until whipped topping is completely melted and mixture is well blended.  (Mixture will still be thin.)

Pour into 8 glasses, cups or bowls.  {It makes about 4 cups of liquid so it will depend on the serving cup you use.}

Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

Makes 8 half-cup servings.

Note:  If you forget to take the cool whip out of the freezer, you can add it frozen- it just takes a few more minutes to melt.
