I have gathered so many little boxes of jello and pudding, thinking that I’ll have them for those just in case desserts. Truth is, I never wind up making them. Instead I open my cabinet and have to paw past them to get to the ingredients I need for making other food.
Tonight I decided to break out one of those packages. I saw a recipe online that called for one package of orange jello, one can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 cups of hot water and 2 packages of cream cheese.
I decided to change the proportions. I used the can of sweetened milk, one package of cream cheese, lemon jello and 2 cups of hot water. I checked the treat before I popped it into the fridge, and it was delightful.
Now I have to hope that my tinkering won’t bother the consistency.
I’ll let you know!
Update: It solidified and was very light tasting. The lemon flavor wasn’t really strong though. 🙂
