Serves:

16 to 20 portions

Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

2 to 3 pkg
lime jell-o
1 to 2 c
carrots shredded
1 c
grapes seedless quartered
water per directions
1/2 c
walnuts or pecans coarse chopped or not (optional)
cool whip or tablespoon of ice cream per serving (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In medium to large bowl mix Lime Jell-O per package directions. Go a little scant on the water due to moisture in Carrots and Grapes. Place in 9" by 13" cake pan or Glass casserole dish.
2
Rinse,pare and shred Carrots. Rinse Seedless Grape (Red or White), then quarter. Add Carrots and Grapes to Jell-O and stir.
3
Refrigerate until Jell-O sets. When it starts to get a little wobbly stir to bring ingredient from bottom. Allow to cool and set.
4
To serve slice into squares. Add Cool Whip or a dab of Ice Cream if you wish.
5
If you encounter any reluctance with the youngsters, press a single M & M to the center of the square and suggest with "Authority" that they eat their way to the center to retrieve. THIS PLOY WORKS -- SOMETIMES. If you use Orange Jell-O they may not even notice the Carrots.

Note: If for toddlers omit the nuts and maybe chop the grapes finer. Peace!

Hint: I've had times when the Jell-O just doesn't set up and firm. In this case I salvage by adding an additional box of Jell-O using 1/2 to 1/3 the recommended water. Using very hat water I disolve well and stir and completely incorporate into the failed batch. It works.
