My dad recently celebrated a birthday which had me reminiscing about a childhood filled with jello in various shapes and concoctions for any and every occasion. I didn’t realize until going away to college that not every family had a jello dessert almost every day. My dad still makes jello desserts (not every day) – so across the miles from California to Illinois – I’ve compiled this list to celebrate his birthday and to keep as a reference for future holidays. It’s also time that I start sharing more jello fun with my kids to keep up our Midwest roots (they went crazy looking at my Pinterest board pictures).
The 35 recipes below are colorful and jiggly and fun. Be sure to check out my Jello Creations Pinterest Board for pictures of all the links below.
