Christmas Jello by Judy Wright

Use 4 small  pkgs of  Jello 2 Green & 2 Red
Mix each package of small Jello mix with:
1 pkg. Knox gelatin
1 c. boiling water

3 pkg. Knox gelatin
1 1/2 c. boiling water
3/4 c. evaporated milk
3/4 c. Eagle Brand milk

I used the Mini Muffin Tray in the photos above, but you can use any Flexipan Mold or Tray, including the Christmas Tree Mold.

For the first layer put 1-tsp of jello in each cup of the tray, cool 15 min in fridge, the second layer is 1-tsp of the milk mixture, cool 15 min in fridge. Alternate the colors and milk until the cup is as full as you want it.

You can use any color combination you like, I  use the red & green for Christmas. You can put a dollop of whipped topping on the top of each one before serving.

NOTE: I make all the jello and milk mixture up before I start, so it isn't real hot for each additional layer. Sometimes the jello will get a little thick while it sits on the counter so I just heat it up a tiny bit until it is liquid again and continue layering.

Children (even adults) love this colorful, refreshing dessert!

Cream Cheese Smoked Bacon Apple Dip

Freeze your favorite dip in your favorite mold and create a centerpiece! 
Best if dip is thick (use cream cheese). 

The recipe for this is a combination of the Apple Blue Cheese Bacon Dip recipe (below the pumpkin cheese cake post) . . . it is an example of how to turn an accident into something savory!

I over-baked the recipe below (forgot to set the alarm) and it ended up with a burnt crust all around it.  So, because I needed it for Thanksgiving, I scraped out the inside (which was not burnt and tasted delicious, but strong) and added it to 16 oz. of softened cream cheese in my mixer.  I whipped it together and then scooped it into my Flexipan Tray.

I froze the cream cheese mixture in the Charlotte Tray (one of my favorites!); once they were frozen, I popped them out and re-wrapped them in plastic wrap and placed them back in the freezer; now I have eight appetizers ready for the holiday season!

Thaw on counter (in serving dish) for at least an hour before serving . . .
