This has always been a Christmas and Thanks Giving favorite in our family. It started with my grandmother and now it's been passed down to my own daughter. I certainly hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

How to Make Cranberry Jello salad


  1. Dissolve Jello in 1 cup of hot water. Then add 2 cups of cold water to jello and refrigerate for about an hour or until thick.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients except marshmallows. Pour jello mixture into a decorative bowl and top with mini marshmallows. Do not mix them in.
  3. Cover the bowl with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 to 5 hours. It's normal for the jello not to set completely, but it should not be watery.
