Jello Pinwheels

Maggie M


First let me say that this is not my recipe. I saw it on Facebook and thought it looked cute and fun and I was right.

I made this and it could not be simpler. It is a fast and fun way to have a cool, low fat and low calorie sweet treat and it's pretty.

Use regular gelatin or sugar free if you desire ... the adventure is yours!

Kids of all ages will like this and it's simple enough that the young ones can help to make them !

  3. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until they are completely melted.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared 8 x 8 baking dish and place in refrigerator for 1 hour or until set.

    Any flavor gelatin will work well.
